Stabbing Reported on Harrison Avenue on Tuesday Night

Boston Police are investigating a stabbing that occurred on Tuesday night on Harrison Avenue in the South End.

A male victim reported to police that he had been walking along Harrison Avenue when he was approached by a male and two females near 840 Harrison Ave. around 8:15 p.m.

The victim told police the male asked him for a cigarette, then said, "I know you have money, just give me some." The victim said the suspect then reached into his pocket and pulled out a small knife that he jabbed at the victim's wrist, slicing a small laceration.

The victim told police that the suspect did not steal any money or personal items from him, and that he did not have a good description of the male or the two other females who were with him. Police noted in their report that the victim had been intoxicated at the time of the attack.

The victim was transported to Tufts Medical Center for his injuries.
