Cambridge Police say a local 17-year-old walked up to a man waiting for a bus on Cambridge Street around 9:30 p.m. yesterday, then stabbed him and ran towards the Lechmere T station.
The victim sustained two stab wounds to his lower back and buttocks area. He was later transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
While the victim was being treated, Cambridge Police searched the area for the suspect. Minutes after the stabbing was reported, just a few blocks from the location of the incident, officers identified the described suspect standing at a doorway of an unoccupied Thorndike Street building with blood on his hands. The suspect was placed under arrest.
