Milford police have arrested a man accused of stabbing a restaurant employee in the back when the employee approached him about damage in the restaurant.
Daniel Woodhouse, 27, of Milford, was at Redwood Restaurant at 341 Naugatuck Avenue around 11:10 p.m. on Monday when he damaged a jukebox because he was agitated for some unknown reason, according to police.

The victim was transported to an area hospital, where he was treated for injuries and released.
Woodhouse was charged with first-degree assault, breach of peace and criminal mischief and held on $500,000 bond.
