PLAINVILLE - A Plainville woman was arrested Thursday for allegedly stabbing a man multiple times last week, possibly over a drug debt.

Ambyr Mosher, 31, of 45 Maple St., has been accused of using a steak knife to stab the victim - who has not been identified - three times in his shoulder and once in his left arm at her apartment on Dec. 4, according to the arrest warrant. He also suffered broken ribs and a collapsed lung, which police noted is consistent with the victim’s allegation that Mosher also pushed him out of her second floor window, the warrant said.

Mosher faces charges of first-degree assault, first-degree unlawful restraint, first-degree reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. She was held overnight on $500,000 bond and was expected to be arraigned Friday in New Britain Superior Court.

According to the warrant, Mosher was with two men in her home when she became upset with the victim, saying he owed her several bags of heroin. The man who was not stabbed, who served as a witness to police, said Mosher was screaming at the victim, saying he would not be able to leave until he gave her what he owed her, the warrant continued.

The witness was able to get out of the apartment. A few minutes later, he saw the victim outside, stumbling around. He drove him to St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury.

The victim told police Mosher was upset that he may have been buying or selling drugs with someone else, according to the warrant. When he tried to walk around her and leave her apartment, he said, she stabbed him multiple times.

The man called 911 and Mosher allegedly stabbed him again, he told police. While speaking to a dispatcher, the man opened a window and was prepared to jump out to get away from Mosher, the warrant said. Before he could do so, she allegedly pushed him to the ground, the document continued.

The victim then got into his friend’s car and was taken to the hospital.

Police traced the 911 call to the victim’s location while he was still in and around Mosher’s apartment. Responding officers were told by Mosher that she was the victim, and that she had wrestled a knife away from the complainant, suffering superficial wounds.

Mosher was taken to the Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain. A doctor told police he strongly suspected Mosher’s wounds were self-inflicted.

Police also noted in the warrant that several things she told investigators did not add up.
