WINCHESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — On Sunday night, the Massachusetts State Police responded to Winchester's Shannon Beach on reports of a large fight that led to multiple stabbings in the parking lot of the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Officials say the brawl stemmed from an argument between a group of young men over a door being opened into the side of a parked pickup truck. First punches were thrown between the groups, then police say, 29-year-old Juan Hernandez of Chelsea allegedly retrieved a knife from his vehicle and stabbed those involved in the fight.
The MSP said several men ran into the woods after the fight but were found by police later. One person was hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital for their injuries.
Troopers arrested Hernandez, charging him with six counts of assault and battery, disorderly conduct, and affray. Four others were arrested and charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct.
