HARTFORD — Before sentencing a man Tuesday to seven years in prison for the unprovoked stabbing of a Hartford mail carrier two years ago, a judge stressed the long-term effects of such crimes on victims — but also accepted a defense claim that the assailant was having a schizophrenic episode.

“I’m scared to go to work,” the victim told Judge David P. Gold in an emotional statement in state Superior Court in Hartford. “I’m scared to go by people.”

The man recalled that he had greeted the assailant, a man he had never seen before, with “Hey, how you doing?” as he returned to his postal van moments before the Sept. 20, 2021, attack on Morningside Street West in Hartford.
