Charlestown Catfight Ends in Stabbing

Lastnight at approximately 01:30 hours Boston Police Officers from District A-15 and Boston EMS responded to O’Riley Way in the Charlestown Projects for reports of a person stabbed. On arrival Officers and EMTs located an adult female victim who had been stabbed and cut multiple times including in her face.

EMTs quickly tended to her injuries and Officers began to canvas the area. While searching for a crime scene officers located a lengthy blood trial and expertly followed it leading to the discovery of a pain of Crocks, then keys and then finally an open knife laying in the gutter.

The keys area was secured and Detectives were called to the scene to process it. Neighbors told us they witnessed multiple women fighting it out in the street prior to 911 being called and assumed it was related. The victim was transported to a local area hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injured.

At this time no arrests have been made and no suspect description is available. As always community members wishing to assist in the investigation can help by calling the CrimeoStoppers Tip Line at 1 (800) 494-TIPS or by texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).
