Stabbing Followed Attempted Robbery

The man who was stabbed Sunday night told police it came after his attacker made a grab for his wallet.

A 24-year-old man who was stabbed Sunday night said the assailant cut him after first making an attempt to grab his wallet.

The man said he first encountered the suspect outside the Tedeschi convenience store. He told the responding officer "a black man came up to me as I left the store," according to a police report, said Lt. James Falvey. The suspect asked him where the bus stop was for Boston, and the victim told him, "I don't know."

"I pulled back from him and he stabbed me."

The suspect was described by the victim as being a black man in his 20s, with a black jacket and a black woolen cap. 

The responding officer, Robert Tusino, found the victim standing with a woman on North Bow Street at Central Street. When the officer arrived, the woman told him the man had been stabbed, Falvey said.

The officer found a small puncture wound under his left arm, in the ribcage area. The man was bleeding heavily.

Still no name for the stabbing victim?

Hi, victims are not identified by police, or by media. Why are you looking for a name for the victim?

To see if I know him.

I'm sorry, but unless a victim comes forward publicly, we don't publish their names. Last week, the boy who was hit by the car, his name was made public when the family agreed... that's a recent example.

I'm sorry Mary, I did not know that.

Not a problem...

I know the victim and thank God he is doing much better.... I hope the person who did this to him pays for it for as long as possible if not his whole life cause the victim did not deserve this to have happen to him

Raquel, you missed my point. I was mocking the people who want to know his name, the ones who are hoping the victim might not be from here so they can start in on him. I'm with you on this. If you correctly read what I wrote, you would understand. If you read my earlier posts you would notice I already questioned what difference does it make what his name is. Again, I agree with you. I don't have much tolerance for those who are ignorant. Not you.

Tony, you must have written something against the rules because you have no other posts. Shame on you, you must be from out of town.
