ROXBURY (CBS) – A teenager and a 40-year-old man were stabbed in separate incidents in Roxbury on Saturday night.
The stabbings occurred shortly before 6:30 p.m.
Boston Police said they do not believe their injuries are life-threatening. The extent of the victims’ injuries and their conditions were not immediately known.
Boston Police were first called to an apartment complex on Bower Street for an altercation.
When officers arrived, they found a 16-year-old boy stabbed and suffering from wounds.
Felicia King said she saw the teenage victim and called 911. She said the boy collapsed in a neighbor’s yard and began shouting for help. She stayed on the phone with paramedics until they arrived.
“He come running from around this corner real fast like, ‘Oh, someone stabbed me!’ Like that,” King said. “He didn’t look right. Blood was coming profusely down his face.”
Then, in nearby Herald Park, police responded to a report of a stabbing there. Officers found a 40-year-old man also suffering from stab wounds.
Investigators were later seen going door-to-door to interview witnesses.
Police are investigating whether the two stabbings were linked to the Carribean Festival held on Saturday.
