On Thursday, January 12, 2023, at approximately 22:45 hours, Boston EMTs and Boston Police officers from Districts B-2 and C-11 responded to a 911 call reporting that a person was stabbed on the corner of E. Cottage Street and Dorchester Avenue. Initial reports suggested the incident was domestic violence related.
The police unit that on-sited the incident immediately located the stabbing victim in this area. The victim in question had suffered serious but non-life-threatening stab wounds to his leg and right upper chest area.
As EMTs were treating him, the victim stated that the incident actually occurred in front of the Dublin House. He was then quickly transported to a local hospital for further treatment.
B-2 and C-11 units responded to both scenes urgently. Upon their arrival at the initial scene on Dorchester Avenue, they noted that the suspect was still with the victim.
Although the nature of their relationship was not confirmed, responders believed the victim was known to the suspect and the incident was deemed a domestic violence dispute. The female suspect was immediately taken into custody by Police.
Units then responded to the alleged scene in front of the Dublin House, where the victim claimed the incident occurred, and began looking for any evidence or signs of a struggle. However, after canvassing the area thoroughly, they were unable to uncover any relevant pieces of evidence. They left the scene and reported back to the initial scene.
The scene on Dorchester Avenue yielded slightly more evidence, including a red car that the two involved in the incident appeared to own.
The vehicle was searched and taken in by Detectives to be used in the investigation. However, other than that, not much evidence was found in relation to the the stabbing.
B-2 and C-11 Police and Detectives are actively reviewing the facts of this case and there is no further information at this time. Any individual with information is urged to contact B-2 Detectives at 617-343-4275 or C-11 Detectives at 617-343-4335.
