Man charged with Ashmont T-stop stabbing, based in part on papers he allegedly threw at victim
A man arrested at a Shattuck Hospital shelter yesterday was ordered held in lieu of $25,000 bail today on charges he stabbed a woman who'd just gotten off a bus from Brockton at the Ashmont T station Tuesday morning, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Prosecutors say that in addition to attacking the woman with what might have been a small knife - police initially were told to look for a ballpoint pen - Donald Calvaire, 29, also threw several pieces of paper at the woman, including "a piece of mail addressed to one of Calvaire's family members." That was enough for Transit Police to dig up more information, including his photo and a copy of his discount T pass for people with disabilities, the DA's office says.
If Calvaire does make bail, he will have to stay away from Ashmont station and wear a monitoring device while awaiting trial.
