Sunday Globe Special: I Took a Stab At It

"Man fatally stabbed in Manchester, N.H., night club" by Derek J. Anderson Globe Correspondent  May 09, 2015

A 29-year-old man was fatally stabbed early Saturday morning at a Manchester, N.H., nightclub, according to the New Hampshire attorney general’s office, and a suspect was arrested in Boston later in the day.

Darrell Robinson, of Manchester, was stabbed inside Club Drynk at 20 Old Granite St. around 1 a.m. after an altercation with another patron, New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster said in a statement. Police arrived and found Robinson bleeding from “an apparent stab wound to his torso,” the statement said.

Robinson was rushed to Elliot Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to Foster’s office.

“There were 50 to 70 people inside at the time,” said Benjamin J. Agati, a senior assistant attorney general, said in a phone interview. “It was a busy Friday night. We’re still trying to find out what sparked the incident.”

As of 5 p.m., authorities were still processing the scene, said Agati.

It was unclear if the club would be open for business Saturday night.

“That will be up to the owners,” Agati said.

No one from Drynk could be reached for comment Saturday during business hours.

A warrant for the arrest of Joel Martin, 26, of Manchester, was issued Saturday. Not long afterward, Martin was located in a Boston hospital and arrested by Boston police as he was being discharged, the statement said.

It was unclear on Saturday how Martin ended up at that hospital.

Authorities are investigating the nature of Martin’s injury, Agati said.

Martin is expected to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court on Monday as a fugitive....



"A 65-year-old Belmont man was arrested on charges of stabbing a man late Friday night in Cambridge, police said Saturday. Around 11:15 p.m., a Cambridge resident was stabbed in the stomach after an altercation at the corner of Hancock Street and Massachusetts Avenue, a statement from Cambridge Police said. Officers found the victim lying on the ground after the suspect allegedly fled in a vehicle, police stated. The victim was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. Frank Fraumeni was stopped by officers on Harvard Street, police said, and a witness to the stabbing identified him as the suspect. Fraumeni is being charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault to murder, according to police."

I hunger for war protest coverage, but I guess there are no more war protests.

"One person was shot and another was stabbed Friday night in Dorchester in separate attacks, Boston police said Saturday. The shooting took place about 11:45 p.m. on McLellan Street, said Officer Stephen McNulty, a police department spokesman. The victim, a man in his 20s whose name was not disclosed, sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to a Boston Medical Center, said Officer James Kenneally, a department spokesman. McNulty said police had no clear description of a suspect. As of Saturday evening, no arrests had been made, Kenneally said. Around 11:35 p.m. Friday, a person was stabbed at the intersection of Columbia Road and Hancock Street, McNulty said. That victim’s injuries were not life threatening, he said."

"Brockton man charged in slaying of teen at city park" by Aneri Pattani Globe Correspondent  April 27, 2015

A 24-year-old man was arraigned in Brockton District Court Monday afternoon in connection with the fatal stabbing of a Brockton teen in a city park last week, officials said.

Anildo “Ace” Lopes Correia, of Brockton, allegedly stabbed Ywron Martins, 18, in the face and torso early Wednesday evening during a fight at James Edgar Playground, the Plymouth County district attorney’s office said in a statement.

Janish Rojas, Martins’s guardian, said in an interview last week that Martins and Correia had been friends at one point, but Martins had recently started distancing himself from some of his associates.

“He started separating himself from certain people,” she said.

Martins turned 18 on April 15. His mother lives in Cape Verde and his father was vacationing there when the stabbing occurred, Rojas said.

Martins, who had been in trouble with the law, was recently enrolled in a program that was helping him find work, Rojas said. He was set to have a meeting about his job search Thursday.

“His life was worth so much,” she said.

Every life is priceless, and I sincerely mean that.

Some residents have complained that there is not enough police presence at the park.

Mayor Bill Carpenter said at a City Hall news conference Thursday, however, that there had been a strong police presence there Wednesday and motorcycle patrol officers had just left when the fight broke out at 6:42 p.m.

He said state troopers who work with the city’s gang unit had intervened in the fight.

“Police presence or lack thereof was not a factor in any way. Quite the opposite,” Carpenter said.

But he said surveillance cameras will be installed at the park and more patrols will be assigned there....

NDUDispute may have preceeded shooting of man

It wasn't random, nor was another stabbing. Cops had to break up the party and calm things down, which they did. Hunger strike killed a kid though.
