Dave & Buster's Stabbing Suspect Sought By Braintree Police

During an altercation at Dave & Buster's just before closing time last Sunday, a 23-year-old Dorchester man was assaulted and stabbed in the games area by an unknown male now being sought by the Braintree police.

Two men and a woman confronted the Dorchester man in the midway section on July 15 while he was playing a game, Deputy Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement. The victim ended up with minor injuries, lacerations and abrasions to his legs and left arm, but declined a ride to the hospital.

The suspects fled afterward in what could have been a 1990s gold Mazda or Toyota, Jenkins said.

One of the men asked the Dorchester man if they knew each other, and then went around like that for a bit, Jenkins said, before he punched the victim and they fought until staff members approached.

"As they were being separated, a female companion of the second suspect approached the Dorchester man while shouting at him and appearing as if to be about to assault him," Jenkins said. "The Dorchester man picked up a pen and struck the woman in the neck causing a minor injury."

A witness, the Dorchester man's friend, also told police that the man who assaulted the victim had a knife and chased the Dorchester man into the bar area, Jenkins said.
