STATEN ISLAND — An off-duty Manhattan court officer stabbed his girlfriend in the neck in their Annadale home early Monday, sources said.

Eduardo Vias, 35, allegedly got into a fight with his 38-year-old girlfriend, who is also a court officer in Manhattan, inside their Moffett Street home, authorities said.

The dispute escalated and Vias attacked her with a knife about 4 a.m., police said.

"She stated that he stabbed her in the neck," said a police source.

Paramedics rushed the victim to Staten Island University Hospital North Campus, where she was in serious but stable condition, police said.

Vias was taken into custody and charged with assault, unlawful imprisonment and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

He was awaiting arraignment Monday at Staten Island Criminal Court.

A spokeswoman for the state Court of Administration confirmed that Vias, who's been on the job since 2004, and his girlfriend were currently employed as court officers at Manhattan Supreme court.

Vias has been stripped of his gun, court officials said, and will likely be suspended after he is formally charged.
