CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Cambridge Police Department says it has a man in custody after a break-in and stabbing on Sunday morning.
The Department said Mark Pincus, of Plymouth, broke into a Sciarappa Street home in East Cambridge at about 8:20 Sunday morning. Police said the man broke into an apartment at the address and flashed a knife, but the homeowner there pushed the man into the hallway and out of her apartment.
Police said the man fled the area as 911 was called. A short while later, as Cambridge Police looked for a suspect, they were flagged down by a man in a truck on Cambridge and Fifth Streets, who had been stabbed.
A witness said they had seen someone — later identified by police as Pincus — run up to the truck and stab the man in the upper body, apparently unprovoked. They found Pincus within a block of the man with the truck.
Police recovered a knife from Pincus' pocket. The stabbing victim was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening wounds. Pincus is facing a slew of charges, including Home Invasion, Armed Assault with Intent to Murder, Resisting Arrest and Assault and Battery on a Police Officer, among other charges.
He's expected to be arraigned on Monday in Cambridge District Court.
