Man stabbed at Chinatown T stop

MBTA Transit Police and EMTs converged on the Chinatown stop on the Orange Line around 4:30 p.m. after a man was stabbed in the upper torso on the inbound platform. A train that left the station shortly before police were notified of the stabbing was being held at Downtown Crossing, but one possible suspect was in custody.

UPDATE: MBTA Transit Police report Anthony Bonner, 25, of Roxbury, and Joseph Jones, 19, were busy arguing with each other when Bonner attempted to end the discussion by stabbing Jones. Police say Bonner was still on the platform when officers arrived and that they arrested him on a charge of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon.

Jones was transported to a local hospital - and was himself then arrested on a charge of witness intimidation.

Innocent, etc.
