Police: Suspects had baby with them during Warwick convenience store stabbing

WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) -- Warwick Police have arrested two suspects in connection with a stabbing at the Conimicut Variety Store on West Shore Road.

Kristian Orlando Fonseca, 21, was charged with assault with intent to commit a felony, violation of a no-contact order and an outstanding warrant.

Jasmine Brown, 18, of Warwick, was charged with aiding and abetting and assault and battery in the stabbing of a 20-year-old male.

Police said the pair had an infant with them in a baby stroller at the time of the stabbing and took off on foot.

The unidentified victim was transported to Rhode Island Hospital Monday with stab wounds to his head and neck. Police said the victim was in serious condition as of Monday night.

Through the course of their investigation, police said they learned that both suspects knew the victim. Brown had an active no-contact order against Fonseca that resulted from a previous domestic violence crime.

Brown was arraigned at police headquarters and was released on surety bail. Fonseca was held overnight and is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
