Violence Breaks Out In Square

There was an apparent assault on Mt. Auburn St. early this morning. Four youths said they were attacked for no reason by people who jumped out of a car.

One of the victims had a swollen temple and another had a bloody face.

The victims told Cambridge police that they were attacked with pipes and wrenches. The attack is reminiscent of a recent Friday night shooting that also started when people suddenly emerged from a car in the Square.

A person was also stabbed yesterday amidst a fight between about 40 city high school students, according to a Cambridge Police statement.

Two suspects were arrested and both were charged with assault with intent to murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. The suspects were a male juvenile from Cambridge and Michael Kedersen of Newtown Court in Cambridge, police said. They were stopped after a brief foot chase.

The victim was treated at Cambridge Hospital for knife wounds to the side and shoulder and was released late yesterday afternoon.
