BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The victim in a Burlington Old North End stabbing remains hospitalized in what police say is “very serious condition.”

Police say a man broke into a former girlfriend’s apartment just before midnight Wednesday night.

37-year-old William Dunn is charged with aggravated assault after police say he stabbed that man at least four times. That man who has not been identified is in very serious condition.

Two children were sleeping in another room.

“From the information that the suspect, Mr. Dunn, gave us last night, he didn’t say anything about self-defense. In fact, he refused to talk to officers at the time, so he was charged with aggravated assault,” said Burington Deputy Chief Wade Labrecque.

Dunn pleaded not guilty to those charges and was released on conditions. Police say he has a long criminal record including federal charges.
