OLD SAYBROOK, CT (WFSB) -

Police are investigating a serious stabbing that happened at a motel in Old Saybrook Friday morning.

Officers were called to Super 8 Motel, which is about two blocks away from police headquarters, just after 6:30 a.m.

A 23-year-old female victim was stabbed by a man, who was identified as Deep River resident Andrew T. Craig Jr., inside a second floor room of the hotel on Spencer Plain Road, police said.

The victim was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital with life-threatening injuries. She remains in "extremely critical condition," police said.

"We believe this to be an isolated incident, a domestic incident and we feel that no one else is in danger," said Old Saybrook Police Lt. Kevin Roche.

Police seized 178 bags of heroin and more than $2,600.

Craig, 25, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault, criminal attempt to commit murder, possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance and possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana.

He is being held on $1 million bond and is expected to be arraigned at Middlesex Superior Court on Monday.

Motel staff said the female checked in a couple of weeks ago, but did not have any other details. 

The state's attorney's office is also investigating.
