Man arrested in stabbing of woman

Rutland police said a woman who was stabbed Thursday could have been killed if the blade hadn't deflected off her ribs. The woman was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center where she was treated and released for wounds to her elbow and side. Police responded to that address about 9:30 Thursday night after a report that a woman had been stabbed. Officers found woman and a friend near the site where a 2008 gun-battle between crack dealers left a man dead. 60-year-old Gordon Spaulding, who is a neighbor of the woman at 90 Grove Street was charged in the attack. He remains held on $150,000 bail until his arraignment later today.
