BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Boston man was found stabbed inside a car in Randolph Saturday night, and a suspect has been taken into custody.
Randolph police received a 911 call for a reported stabbing at around 11 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20th. First responders found a 30-year-old Boston man inside a vehicle near 84 North Main Street suffering from a wound to his upper back.
Authorities initially believed he had been shot, because there were five fresh-looking bullet holes in the vehicle. However, it was later confirmed that the victim was stabbed in the back. He was transported to Boston Medical Center with injuries considered serious but not believed to be life-threatening.
Investigators then located what they determined to be the primary crime scene, approximately 1/4 mile away on Nelson Drive, where they found multiple shell casings.
Soon afterward, a Weymouth Police K-9 officer tracked a suspect hiding in a pile of snow in a nearby wooded area.
RPD said the suspect, a 28-year-old Boston man, was "uncooperative" with police and attempted to hide from the K-9. When he was apprehended, officers found an unregistered 9mm semi-automatic firearm in his possession as he was being taken into custody.
He was taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton for treatment for exposure to the elements, and for a dog bite to his leg that he received while trying to elude the K-9.
RPD said the suspect's name is not being released at this time pending the issuance of a criminal complaint. He will likely face numerous charges, including Armed Assault with Intent to Murder and multiple gun charges.
Randolph Police Department are investigating, and said at this time, there is not believed to be any active danger to the community, and the incident does not appear to be random in nature.
