On Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 9:00 a.m., Worcester Police assigned to the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force along with members of the State Police VFAS went to 47 Lafayette Street in Worcester to locate 40 year old Edwin Rivera. After a lengthy investigation by Worcester Police Detectives, a warrant had been issued to arrest Rivera.

Upon arrival at Lafayette Street, officers were let into the apartment by a resident. After searching the apartment, officers found Rivera hiding under a mattress. He was placed under arrest without incident and taken to the Worcester Police Station for processing.

On Friday, December 02, 2016 at approximately 1:44 a.m., Worcester Police responded to the area of 292 Constitution Ave for a report of a stabbing. When officers arrived, police met with a 33-year-old male and a 18-year-old female who had both been stabbed.
