Boston Police report a man walking along Lincoln Street around 1:45 a.m. was set upon by a group of men, who stabbed him and then jumped into two cars.
Police say the man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, but that he is expected to survive.
A short while later, police say, officers stopped a car matching one of the victim's descriptions:
With the car stopped, officers observed four occupants inside the vehicle. While pat frisking the occupants of the vehicle for weapons, officers discovered that one of the occupants was in possession of a knife. A closer inspection of the knife showed what appeared to be a blood like substance on the blade.
Officers arrested Angel Ruiz, 24, of Boston and charged him with Assault with Intent to Murder and Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (knife).
