State Police report a man was arrested yesterday for allegedly stabbing a man during a fight inside Suffolk Superior Court on Jan. 2 - after somehow slipping a knife past security.
State Police say Jeffrey Toney, 23, and Jerrell Greene-Martin, 18, were in the courthouse around noon with some acquaintances when they got into a fight with two other men on the building's second floor around noon. Greene-Martin took out a knife, stabbed one of the other two men - a 22-year-old Dorchester resident - then fled the building with Toney, State Police say.
"Evidence suggests the incident was gang-related," State Police say, adding the victim was taken to Mass. General and survived.
Greene-Martin was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, Toney with assault and battery. Toney had bail on an earlier charge revoked, State Police say.
