While waiting at a bus stop on the 600th block of Cambridge Street Tuesday night, a man was allegedly stabbed twice by a teenage male, according to Cambridge Police Department spokesperson Jeremy Warnick. Minutes after the incident was reported, Cambridge Police located the suspect, a 17-year-old, blocks from the scene and arrested him, blood on his hands.
The incident occurred at about 9:29 p.m. Tuesday. The victim, a 30-year-old Boston resident, was allegedly approached from behind and stabbed in the lower back and buttocks by an individual who fled the scene.
“There appears to be no sort of association between the [suspect] and the victim,” Warnick said, describing the stabbing as a “random incident.”
When officers arrived on the scene, they found the victim in a nearby restaurant, according to Warnick. It is unknown whether restaurant staff or the victim himself alerted authorities of the incident, he said. The victim sustained non-life-threatening wounds and was sent to the hospital and released later Tuesday evening.
Officers found the suspect in the doorway of an unoccupied Thorndike Street building and arrested him, detaining him overnight, according to Warnick.
