Boston Man Charged in Square Stabbings

The Boston Police Department has arrested a suspect in connection with two stabbings that occurred in Harvard Square last Saturday night.

The BPD arrested 20-year-old Boston native Davongie Stone around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in connection with a separate non-fatal stabbing in Boston’s Downtown Crossing, according to a citywide alert sent by the Cambridge Police Department Wednesday morning. Police identified Stone as the attacker in the two Harvard Square attacks, which left two victims with non-life threatening stab wounds.

Stone is alleged to have carried out two assaults near John F. Kennedy Park over the weekend, first attacking a Harvard Business School doctoral student and later stabbing a local restaurant employee.

Stone will be charged with two counts of armed assault to murder in Cambridge and one count of armed assault to murder and other charges in Boston, according to CPD. He was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.

Police are continuing to search for two others who were reportedly seen accompanying Stone the night of the attacks.
