New Bedford Man Nabbed in Stabbing
A stroll down the Avenue turned violent yesterday afternoon. Police say 28-year-old Randy Perez Rodriguez was walking down Acushnet Avenue with his girlfriend when he was confronted by a group of three or four males.
The two parties got into an argument, and escalated when Rodriguez stabbed one of the men in the chest and leg. The unidentified victim is being treated at St. Luke’s for non-life threatening injuries. Rodriguez fled the scene but was followed by a witness.
Rodriguez was found lying under a camper on Davis Street with the knife in his possession. He faces multiple charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
