A man is accused of stabbing himself with an electrician's tool and attempting to report his girlfriend as the suspect.

Police in Willimantic said they responded to a home on West Avenue around 5 p.m. on Thursday.

They said Javier Davila, 36, destroyed property belonging to his girlfriend and threatened to "kill her."

When police arrived, they said he tried to identify himself as his brother.

They said Davila had an order to incarcerate out for him for failing to pay a $150 fine for a disorderly conduct charge.

While in custody at Willimantic police headquarters, officers said Davila had a violent episode in a holding cell. An officer attempted to provide medical treatment to Davila when Davila assaulted the officer.

The officer was not seriously hurt and did not need medical attention himself.

Davila had to be transported to Windham Hospital's emergency room to continue treatment. 

Afterward, he was returned to Willimantic police and held on a $50,000 bond.

Davila was charged with disorderly conduct, third-degree criminal mischief, second-degree threatening, criminal impersonation, interfering with an officer and assault on an officer.

He's scheduled to face a judge on Friday.
