Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan has announced that a man has suffered serious injuries after being stabbed in Somerville early Saturday morning.
At approximately 1:25 a.m., police responded to a 911 phone call reporting a person on the ground on Broadway near the intersection of Hinkley Street. Authorities say when they arrived, they found a man suffering from life threatening injuries and the victim was then transported to Massachusetts General Hospital.
The victim has been identified as a 27 year-old resident of Somerville.
“This is an active investigation,” said District Attorney Ryan. “Evidence gathered so far indicates that the victim may have been with an acquaintance walking down the street shortly before the stabbing occurred. Anyone who may have seen something in the area of the Dunkin Donuts store on Broadway early this morning is asked to come forward in order to assist in apprehending the person or the people responsible for this crime.”
Authorities say a preliminary investigation indicates that the victim was stabbed on Hinkley Street and that the victim then traveled on foot to Broadway where he collapsed on the ground. There are indications that the victim was seen walking with another individual before the stabbing occurred.
This case is being investigated by the Somerville Police Department. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Somerville Police Department Detective Ernest Nadile at (617) 625-1600, extension 7235.
The prosecutor assigned to this case is Assistant District Attorney Nicole Allain.
