BOSTON, MA – A crime scene in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood saw two juvenile males stabbed and another assaulted late Wednesday afternoon. Boston Police officers were dispatched to the Camden and Tremont street intersection around 5:45 p.m. in response to calls about a pedestrian hit by a vehicle.
When the police arrived, they discovered the three injured juvenile males. Contrary to the initial calls, none of the victims had been struck by a vehicle. Two of them had sustained stab wounds, while the third showed signs of assault.
Officials reported that all three juveniles were taken to a local hospital. One of the victims of the stabbing had life-threatening injuries, while the injuries of the other two were said to be non-life-threatening. Boston Police Superintendent Felipe Colon reported that the authorities were making efforts to investigate the events at the scene fully.
An eyewitness, Wineska DeJesus, commented on the crime. She stated that her 15-year-old nephew, a high school sophomore, was the assault victim on the scene only a few feet from their home. The boy hadn’t been stabbed but had been attacked by an unknown individual. DeJesus stated that he had been transferred to Boston Children’s Hospital, and is stable and conscious.
Colon confirmed no arrests have been made yet, but assured citizens there is no ongoing threat to the public. Boston Police are encouraging anyone with useful information to call their department.
