Man Steals Money And Frozen Chicken

Via NBC News reports:

Police responded to reports of a stabbing at Columbus Avenue and Ella T. Grasso Boulevard at 12:41 p.m. on Saturday and found the victim, Manuel Martinez, 21, shirtless, with an 18-inch long cut from one armpit to the other.

Martinez told police that he and a friend had been at a female friend’s apartment when her ex-boyfriend, Jeremie Jenkins, 23. of Adeline Street in New Haven, showed up.

Jenkins and the woman had broken up a month earlier after a three-day relationship and she told him to leave, but Jenkins got mad and threw a cup and plate outside through the back door, then went through the house, took the DVR, the woman’s wallet, her cash and a bag of frozen chicken, police said.

Martinez and his friend eventually went out looking for Jenkins.

When they confronted him and demanded that he return the stolen items, Jenkins pulled a knife and swung at Martinez, police said.

Police broadcast a description of Jenkins and saw him Jenkins running behind a nearby diner, with blood on him.

Police apprehended Jenkins and handcuffed him.

The wallet, DVR and frozen chicken were recovered from a nearby trash bin, police said.

Jenkins was charged with assault in the first degree, burglary in the first degree and larceny in the sixth degree.

A doctor evaluated Martinez, who is recovering from his wound.

Did he really have to steal the chicken though??
