Transit Police report arresting a Wakefield man on charges he punched one of two people who wouldn't give him money, then stabbed the second.
Police say John Spector, 25, approached the two around 12:10 a.m. today as they entered the commuter-rail waiting area. Both asked that he leave them alone; they had no money to give. That really got him angry, police say. Spector:
Followed the victims as they made their way to Track 7. The victims again requested Spector leave them alone, Spector responded by striking the 33 year old victim in the face with a closed fist knocking him to the ground. The 2nd victim intervened and struggled with Spector. At this time Spector stabbed the 2nd victim in the bicep area and fled the station.
Boston Police found Spector running through Paul Revere Park on the other side of the Charles not long after.
Officers noted he was sweating profusely and had blood on his face.
After being identified by his victims, he was arrested on charges of assault and battery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, police say.
