College student violently attacks boyfriend, bloodies his nose when he tries to break up with her: Police

A Connecticut co-ed landed in jail last week after allegedly punching her lover in the face when he suggested they stop seeing each other.

According to the Fairfield Citizen, Fairfield University undergrad Kathryn A. Mahoney, 19, was arrested for her violent reaction to the breakup on March 1. She was charged with second-degree felony assault as well as disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

The police report notes that Mahoney, originally from Nashua, New Hampshire, punched the victim in his stomach and face after he attempted to end their relationship. He told authorities he found help in a friend’s dorm room after he was unable to stop Mahoney’s attack by restraining her shoulders.

The man was treated at St. Vincent’s Medical Center for his injured and bloody nose.

According to state records, Mahoney was released from custody on $1,500 bond. She’s scheduled to appear for a hearing at the Bridgeport Superior Court on March 28.

The Daily Mail revealed that Mahoney is a model who also competes on the school’s swim team. Fairfield University is a Jesuit Catholic institution, located around 60 miles outside New York City. It has a total enrollment of about 5,200 undergraduate and graduate students.
