THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS FOR HPD TONIGHT

FROM DEPUTY CHIEF FOLEY:



A veteran Hartford Police Officer was critically injured today responding to a disturbance that was related to property damage involving a landlord and tenant. Below are the details as they have been reported to HPD Major Crimes Detectives:


On Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 9:40am Hartford Police Department patrol officers responded to the apartment building at 5 Constitution Plaza on the report of a disturbance involving a female tenant of the building. On arrival, Hartford Police Department patrol unit #12, made contact with the suspect (Female- Chevoughn Augustin) on the 9th floor. At some point during the investigation a struggle ensued and the suspect knocked the officer to the ground, grabbed a large ceramic kitchen knife, placed her in a choke hold and began stabbing the officer in the neck. The officer managed to radio for assistance.

A 10-0 (Officer in distress/Emergency call) was initiated and all available HPD officers responded to the location. Building management and maintenance workers were in the immediate area, heard the struggle, and came to assist the officer. The maintenance workers were able to subdue and disarm the suspect. Back-up officers arrived and began immediate bleeding control and life-saving measures. Back-up officers carried the officer down to an awaiting ambulance. The officer was bleeding badly from the neck and unable to communicate. Back-up officers also secured the suspect and knife. The injured officer was taken to Hartford Hospital ED.


HPD Major Crimes Division and Crime Scene Division detectives responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.


The suspect was taken to St. Francis Hospital and treated for a minor laceration to her hand. Upon release she was taken to the Hartford Police Department Major Crimes Division. The suspect was interviewed and was cooperative with HPD detectives. Following the interview the suspect was taken to HPD booking and charged with Criminal Attempt Murder; Assault 1st, Assault on a Police Officer and Criminal Mischief 3rd. She is currently being held without bond.


Chevoughn Augustin 11/30/78 5 Constitution Plaza Apt. 903

(Note: the accused has aliases and detectives are working to confirm her identity)


The officer was immediately listed in critical condition with her jugular and trachea lacerated. Hartford Hospital doctors took the officer to surgery. The officer is out of surgery and in the ICU currently listed in critical/stable condition. The officer’s family is with her and has asked that her name not be released until arraignment, as they work to notify extended friends and family. 

Building management and the maintenance workers were interviewed by MCD detectives. Major Crimes detectives confirmed, if not for their immediate intervention, this scenario would have been fatal.


At the request of HPD and the Officer's family, I will not be posting her name at this time, but please keep her in your thoughts and prayers during this critical period in her recovery. And please keep the rest of our Police Officer's and first responders in your prayers during these difficult times.

I hope the officer recovers. I will keep her, her family and her HPD family in my prayers. That waste of a life that stabbed her deserves to live her life out in a hell hole and I hope she does just that.

Look at the times. I had the name yesterday minutes after the incident but I chose to respect the wishes of HPD and the officers family’s request for privacy. Her recovery was more important to me at the time than being the first one to put her name out

Where is the outrage from Hartford’s community leaders and clergy??? CRICKETS!!! I hope they lose sleep tonight. There is a long list of people with blood on their hands ,,first and foremost , THE LOCAL MEDIA for presenting a false agenda leading people to believe that blacks are targeted by white officers , PLEASE NOTE that Jill who is white was attacked by a black female and the night before Jill’s attack a white female officer in West Hartford was severely beaten by a black male shoplifter,although both stories were reported by local media they left skin colors of those involved out of their reports. Next Black Lives Matter ,there is no need to explain why they have blood on their hands ,next, our politicians throughout the state have at one time or another provided a sound bite supporting THE WRONG SIDE OF THIS FALSE AGENDA ,,,,, WHERE’S BIG MOUTH MINNIE GONZALEZ????? Maybe that shitbag who attacked Jill will have one of Minnie’s relatives as a cell mate,,,,,I’ll end my portion of the list with Luke Bronin , as in my Black Lives Matter comment above there is no need for explanation,SHAME ON YOU LUKE FOR RECEIVING FACETIME AT THE NEWS CONFERENCE,,,YOUR AN EMBARRASSMENT IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD !!!

Is documented evidence that she had mental illness evidence that the police didn't even follow up on previous complaints she was crying out for Help she wasn't Being evicted because of non payment of rent for harassment because she has Mental Health issues the officer Went in blindly

Anonymous said...

The officer went in blindly they were previous accounts of harassment that The Hartford police did not follow up on had she had this information she would have gone it a quip the lady clearly had previous mental health issues and some of that would have been known had they followed up on the previous harassment complaints

I have so much to say on this, but right now my thoughts are on the recovery of Officer Kidik and that needs to remain foremost in all of our thoughts and prayers. There will be plenty of time eventually to assess blame and highlight the failings of our Mayor and others

Anonymous said...

The mayor is a c*****g Democrat who likes to wear other peoples’ pain. What a loser! More of this BS come to our Santuary City too. Only its citizens won’t know what’s really going wrong and will not know what to look out for because the NEWS reporting is being undermined for some sort of illusion for the social good.

I thought so too. She seemed too comfortable. Horrific and sad. Think about it.... you’re being removed from your home into quite possibly nowhere. Three meals a day and a place to sleep for the rest of her days sounds better doesn’t it. Maybe there is a Nurse Ratched where she’s going. Turn that ECT to the MAX and walk away!

It's time to investigate HARTFORD POLUCE DEPARTMENT, their protocol and the way they operate.

For what?

Right! Nice shift in blame 9:38p. Your IQ is showing.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you all, a full and speedy recovery of officer Jill is the most important issue at this time.
However, I velieve 9:38pm is referring to is investigating the entire situation, were there warning signs of previous attacks/harassment, was dispatch supposed to send several officers to that location etc.

Anonymous said...

9:38 PM ,,,I TOTALLY AGREE ON CHANGING PROTOCOL!!! THE CITY OF HARTFORD AND HPD SHOULD IMPLEMENT “ SWIFT” and “IMEDIATE” EUTHANZATION OF ANY CITY RESIDENT,VISITOR OR WORKER WHO “CHOSES” TO INHUMANLY KILL OR ATTEMPT TO KILL “INNOCENT” PEOPLE WITHIN HARTFORDS BORDERS ...... HOW’S THAT FOR A START 9:38 PM ???? I’ve got more ,let me know if you want to see them! And 12:36 AM ,,,PLEASE!!! Each and everyone of us has some form of mental illness that we keep “in check” in many different ways,,,,,even on our worst days of despair most of humanity does not have the thought or desire to stab a police officer to death,,,,,take your liberal bullshit somewhere else,,,,this was pure evil and needs to be dealt with accordingly. Maybe when this ANIMAL gets released in a few years she could move in with you and/or your family!!! You in???? And 12:36 AM ,,I DONT APOLOGIZE FOR MY USE OF THE WORD “ANIMAL” ,,,,I SUPPOSE YOU THINK THAT ALL THE MS13 GANG MEMBERS NEED IS A HUG!!!!!

There is no justification for what this individual did do this officer! The officer had nothing to do with her situation, but once called had a job to do.. this is what’s wrong with this country, making excuses for inexcusable behavior. Hope you get well soon Officer

Anonymous said...

One lazy officer not properly documenting the incident prior to Kidik’s incident involving the same suspect. Now he’s going around saying he was writing a warrant. Yeah BS!
Another Officer taking credit on the news for the life saving methods that saved Officer Kidiks life. I am ashamed! Get well Jill. There’s no doubt that God put all the right people in the right places that day. Get well soon Officer Kidik.

If everything done by HPD was done right in this terrible incident, why some officers are afraid of investigation into HPD

Kozi said...

I completely agree with you Kevin....it appears they are trying to make this the Officer's fault. I'm gonna out a lid on it because like you, I am orayprafor Jill's full recovery.

Real Talk said...

Many issues arise here Kevin.
First and foremost prayers and a full recovery is sent to Officer Kidik. She did not deserve this, no officer should be assaulted and if they are, the suspect should face extremely harsh punishment. Unfortunately that doesn’t happen in CT or at nolle 14 and thanks Gayle and to Lying Luke Bronin and Governor Malloy’s judicial reform, second chances and soft approach (if any) on crime. Some of Lying Luke’s famous quotes such as “being labeled a felon is an unfair life sentence.” Hey Luke, do you also believe it will be unfair Chevoughn Augustin being labeled a felon. Luke, do you support an early release from prison for her under a second chance? You can’t and won’t even say you will see to a severe sentence for anyone that assaults officers in Hartford because your a liberal tu$# who has only contributed to the demise and destruction of CT, specifically Hartford. No officer wants to hear your phony condolences and support for Jill, your only using that as a political platform. When have you stood in support for us (HPD)?
Answer- NEVER.
You did give us horrible HSA healthcare and raised our premiums, which hopefully covers our injured officer, and saw it through to give us a crappy contract, just like you did with HFD. Fact is your an entitled rich kid from Fairfield County who despises law enforcement and public servants.
You Lying Luke created an environment like this where “animals” think it’s ok to attack law enforcement with the lack of support and light on crime policies. And yes, any person regardless of color, that slashes a persons neck is undoubtedly an animal. The blood in all actuality is on your hands Luke.
To the race baiting media that covers Hartford, whenever it’s a white officer using force against a person of color, your headline is usually something to the affect of “White Officer tases Black Man”. Race is always the headline when a white officer uses force against an African American. Why was there no mention here that the suspect was black and the officer was white? You are all disgusting and you wonder why people can’t stand you. The only two honest reporters I can think of are you Kevin Brookman and Len Besthoff.
The media only wants liberals like Foley, and don’t think for one second those who know him haven’t forgotten his antics and how he treated people in the west end when he was a young officer, that’s a story in and of itself. There’s a reason why honest tell it like it is guys like Chis Lyons was cut from Fox 61. Jill Konopka sitting Indian style in the lobby should get a handle on her 77 problem and all these other fake news media camped out in our lobby are fake bottom feeders. Mario Boone, fake cop ex parole officer is another race baiter and Law Enforcement hater. Foley only emboldened these bottom feeders by catering to them. The entire courant staff, except maybe Steve Goode, are all liberal agenda driven bottom feeders. We respect you Kevin, you have accurate sources that trust you, your not a fake bottom feeder, and you report true accurate information, you always have. All HPD related news should go to you first to disperse.
Part II will be forthcoming.....stay tuned.
God bless you Jill Kidik.

STFU. Typical CT non LE supporting loser. The only issue I see is that the suspect is still breathing.

Anonymous said...

Along with Lying Luke, the media is also to partially blame. All their biased race baiting reporting (not you Brookman) has caused an environment where persons of color do not trust the police. The media making everything a race issue and always headlining white officer uses force against black man has really caused an environment in Hartford where they don’t trust the police. Yes, you the media are to blame. The stabbing suspect even said in her interview she didn’t trust Officer Kidik. Why ask you? Because you the media created that general feeling with all your race baiting reporting and biased fake news. That’s another reason almost all officers can not stand each and every one of you.
I’ve never seen Brookman headline race. You media scum really don’t even realize the unsafe environment you created for us. Keep up the good work.

Luke Bronin's own words- "being labeled a convicted felon is an unfair life sentence."

Does he really think that’s true for Murder 1 or pedos or is this a political move for votes from the families of felons? It usually takes a long time for felons to reinstate their vote.
From the commentary of- http://wethepeoplehartford.blogspot.com/2016/12/are-we-serious-about-getting-guns-off.html?m=1

Holy shit! Someone quick find out if Augustin was this Democrap ‘second chance’ idea before its buried.
These Democrats have such an open mind that the wind blows right through it.

Prayers for Officer Kidik

From what I've read, I believe the perp has mental issues, NOT that that absolves her of this crime.

IMHO, and it's only my opinion, This situation is the result of years of collusion between the MSM & the Lib/Dem party. (And to be honest some 'Pubs also).

We now live in a world that excuses just about everything, because everyone's a "Victim", had a tough childhood, & numerous other excuses.

Political Correctness rules the day. Heaven forbid, (Can I say "Heaven", or will someone be offended?), that people are held to a Standard.
When there are no repercussions for one's actions, nothing will change.

We'll be voting in November, & again in 2020. Keep this in mind...

"You keep doin' what you do, you keep gettin' what you got".

You're statement is an outright lie. Are you a reporter or just hate your coworkers? Either way, fake / lying statement.

Anonymous said...

Agreed. Complete lie and false news. It could just be one of the few HPD officers with a mental disorder.

Ralphiec88 said...

I get tired of people ranting about Second Chance when they appear not to know anything about what they're talking about. CT's Second chance proposals always excluded violent crimes, nobody's gonna give a second chance to someone who nearly killed a cop, so quit your ranting.

I don't know if Bronin said "being labeled a convicted felon is an unfair life sentence." I do know it's the title of a New York Times editorial. Anyone complaining about that statement should also say whether they support convicted felons getting their guns back. I suspect they might not be as consistent as they think they are.

Josh Hinson said...

At 938. You are correct protcol needs to be revamped on both the police. Ie do away with the allowing officers to pick calls of the cad and respond. And the dispatchers need retraining on protcal of allowing officers to go alone to a 2 man call. A 10-0 Shouldn't have to be told several times before its done then not sending officers to wrong side of the building. A lot of fingers can be pointed after listening to the you tube audio. The unions the police the state's attorney have their handsful for a while.
Goodluck in your recovery officer. May your road to wellness be on your side

Tabby St. Jean said...

Hit the nail on the head Josh! You sound very familiar with the way HPD works these days. Unfortunately the recent turn of events shows Cad shopping and selectively dispatching one officer to an active call caused this situation to go hairy. Lucky this officer, with the help of some wonderful people and had some luck & a angel on her side. There are so many cases of police brutality going around the world one never thinks its going to be this close to home. Change in protocal and restraining might be just what everyone needs. Officer Godspeed
