Boston Police report a bicyclist working for a food-delivery service was attacked by another bicyclist with a knife around 9:40 p.m. on Monday outside a Prudential Center entrance.
According to police, the worker had just stopped to ask a Pru security guard for directions to a particular restaurant in the mall when:
The suspect approached him and slashed him on his arm without provocation. The victim said he did not know the suspect and that the attack was completely random. The victim was treated on scene by Boston EMS but refused further medical attention.
Police say officers spotted a guy matching the suspect's description on Ring Road.
Officers were able to stop the suspect and perform a pat frisk, leading to the recovery of an industrial style pocket knife.
James Carter, also known as Tjay Carter, 38, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, police say.
