Machete-wielding Eastie teens bring beef downtown; try carving guy up at Government Center, police say
Boston Police report arresting a pair of East Boston teens on charges they tried to slice a guy up at the Government Center T stop around 4:20 p.m. today.
The victim, in his late teens or early 20s, was slashed in the arm, but is expected to survive.
Police charged Juan Chavez, 18, of East Boston, with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and affray. Another teen, 15, was charged with disturbing the peace and affray. Both will be arraigned Friday in Boston Municipal Court.
Machetes seem to be a preferred weapon among Eastie thugs.
