Rash of Stabbing Incidents Hit Worcester This Weekend

Monday, May 30, 2016

 

Worcester Police are investigating four different stabbing incidents that occurred this weekend.

On Friday, evening  May 27, Worcester Police responded to a report of a stabbing in the area of 766 Main Street. Upon the officers arrival they met with a 19-year-old male victim. The victim was conscious and alert. The victim stated that he was riding his bike south on Main Street when he felt pain to his back. The victim stated that he realized he had been stabbed in the back by an unknown suspect. The victim could not provide additional suspect information.

Witnesses at the scene provided conflicting information. Based on eye witness accounts it appears that the victim and suspect knew each other. The victim did receive a substantial wound and was transported to a local hospital where he had emergency surgery. The victim is in stable but serious condition.

Then on Saturday evening, Worcester police responded to Henchman Street for a report of an assault and battery involving a dangerous weapon. When arriving the Worcester Police interviewed a 38-year-old male victim.

The victim stated that he was cut but did not mention how it happened or who was responsible for the injury. The victim refused to cooperate with police. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The injuries are non-life threatening.

Two More Incidents Early Sunday AM

Sunday morning at about 12:30 AM, Worcester Police responded to 30 Chandler Street, the BP Gas station, for a report of a fight with a dangerous weapon.

Police could not locate a victim. A witness was located and informed the officers that two males were fighting earlier but had recently left the scene. Officers searched the immediate area with negative results. Approximately 15 minutes later police received a call that a male was at Dunkin Donuts, located at 845 Main Street suffering from a laceration. Responding officers met with the 43-year-old male victim. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment, his injuries are non-life threatening. The victim could not describe his assailant.

Later Sunday early morning at approximately 2:18 AM, a Worcester Officer was dispatched to a local hospital emergency room to meet with a stabbing victim. Upon arrival the officer met with a 25-year-old male victim. The victim stated that he was walking in an ally way on Water Street leading towards Harding Street when he was jumped by several males. During the altercation the victim was stabbed. The victim provided limited suspect information. A crime scene was located and processed. The injuries are non-life threatening.

Police investigators are continuing to work on all four stabbing incidents. It appears that these incidents are not connected. Investigators believe that none of these incidents were random and that the victims knew their assailants. The victims were refusing to cooperate fully with police.
