HASTINGS - Sources say police are now investigating whether the stabbing of a woman in Hastings was self-inflicted.

Sources tell News 12 that the woman is the ex-wife of Yonkers Assistant Fire Chief Robert Capurso. They do not believe he had anything to do with the stabbing. She was rushed to Westchester Medical Center Thursday night.

The incident happened just after 8 p.m. along Farragut Parkway, yards away from the home the couple used to share. The fire chief still lives in the home with his children.

Police were initially looking for three possible suspects. Now, authorities are questioning the validity of the woman's story.

Friends say Capurso went through a messy divorce back in 2009 during which his ex-wife made allegations against him. A high-ranking fire department source, who has known Capurso for many years, says Capurso has lived in constant fear of his ex threatening to do something to harm him or their two daughters.
