Boston EMS Incidents reports somebody was stabbed at Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard around 6 p.m.
Wild guess... was it drug related? This area could easily pass for and be scarier than "Walking Dead" zombie scenes!
That corner has become a hangout for aggressive panhandlers. There is a homeless shelter nearby. Do they close their doors during the day? Since the Fall, there's been a noticeable increase in the number of people hanging around - now several dozen. You have to pay 'tribute' if your car is trapped by the stop light. They wander up and down in the street between the row of cars. There's one young guy who 'washes' windshields without asking permission like a New York panhandler. It's a dangerous situation. I'm no longer willing to let friends stay at the new hotels next to the hospital. If the local businesses were smart, they'd set up a fund to keep the shelters open during the day.
