Man sliced in hand with machete in Downtown Crossing

Police found a man on Tremont Street at Park Street with fresh slice wounds to the hand he said were inflected by another man armed with a machete, around 9:35 p.m., possibly on Temple Place.



Not to be that person, but just curious on the use of inflected re: the machete.

...his story is that it was done by somebody else. I submit that he did it himself because he was holding the machete...poorly.

This is why Boston has a ban on knives longer than 2.5".

Enforcement is of course dubious at best.

That area can be mega sketchy and especially so at night. Good to know that people are packing jungle swords.

There have been reports of a guy/guys who are hanging out in the methadone mile with a machete as well...just wielding it around apparent to folks driving by.

Ah, Downtown Crossing - the Hub of the Hub! Here's my idea - we'll block off all car access, and turn it into a pedestrian paradise! It will be just like those European cities, where lovers walk hand in hand.
