Chelsea man charged with East Boston stabbing

Boston Police report a fight outside 21 Bennington St. around 2:15 a.m. on Saturday ended when Miguel Rodriguez, 21, of Chelsea, plunged a knife into the arm of another man.

Police responding to the scene did not initially find the victim. Police report he didn't wait around for police, but instead got into a car with somebody else - and that a state trooper found the two at the entrance to the Sumner Tunnel.

Rodriguez was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Innocent, etc.

Let me see if I understand

By on

Let me see if I understand the report correctly: Four women, along with Miguel, go to the police and say they were attacked by two men. Miguel gets arrested. He might have been the only male defending the women from their attackers--especially if he went with the women to the police. Were the two men, who fled, one of whom was treated for a non-life threatening stab wound, arrested? If the women did, in fact, identify their attackers as those two, including the stab victim, it seems to me they should have been arrested as well.
