Suspect in South Station Stabbing Apprehended Within Minutes Thanks to Quick Work From all Departments

At 19:49 hours last night, police received calls for a person stabbed at 700 Atlantic Avenue, South Station. Boston Police and Boston EMS were first on scene, with Transit Police not far behind them to later aid in the suspect search.

Immediately after the first call, units arrived to find blood inside and outside of South Station. The victim was located and transported with serious life-threatening injuries. Due to the nature of the incident, full notifications were made, with District Detectives, investigators with the Homicide Unit, Crime Scene Response Unit, and Command Staff all responding to the scene.

The suspect had last been seen fleeing from South Station toward China Town. A BOLO was sent out and with the help of Transit Police, they were able to locate the suspect and take him into custody. A knife was located along with bloodied clothes that were found discarded in the flight path.

At 19:54, less than 10 minutes after the initial response to the incident, a homeless man, 35 year old David Fink, was arrested in the area of 7 Hudson Street near the China Gates. The teamwork between all response teams across multiple departments allowed for this suspect to be taken into custody almost immediately. He was charged with Assault with Intent to Murder and will assumably be summonsed to court at a later date.
