Terrence Crawford - Jailed After Repeatedly Stabbing Girlfriend After She Informed Him She Was Pregnant With His Baby


Norwalk, Connecticut (The Weekly Vice) - Terrence Crawford, a 17-year-old Norwalk teen, was jailed after he allegedly beat and repeatedly stabbed his girlfriend after she informed him he had gotten her pregnant.

According to Norwalk police, Crawford and a friend reportedly attacked his 16-year-old girlfriend in the woods near Clay Street in South Norwalk. He and his accomplice then dragged the girl off and left her lying on the ground, bleeding. Neighbors witnessed the teens dragging the screaming girl and contacted authorities.

Investigators say that when the girl was found, she appeared to be badly beaten, had puncture wounds on the left side of her back, and lacerations on her neck, elbow, and hands. She was taken to a local hospital where she remains in intensive care with a punctured lung.

Police recovered an 8-inch knife that was found at the scene. Both of the suspects were apprehended soon after, following a short foot chase.

One of Crawford's friends told investigators that Crawford talked about killing his girlfriend because she was pregnant - but that he assumed Crawford was kidding.

"I don't want no damn baby," Crawford reportedly told the friend.

"As he began walking in the woods with her I saw him begin to pull a knife out of his jeans. I thought to myself 'he is really going to stab her'. A couple of minutes later I heard her screaming really loud. She was yelling, "it hurts" and "I'm bleeding," the unidentified friend told police.

Crawford was booked into jail and charged as an adult with attempted murder, first-degree assault and resisting arrest. He was arraigned on Monday during an eventful hearing, and his bond was raised to $500,000.

At least one of the victim's family members had to be restrained after he reportedly tried to jump over the courtroom partition to attack Crawford.

The other teen involved, whose name was not released, was charged with resisting arrest.
