    Boston Police have arrested a suspect after he allegedly stabbed a man near Chinatown Saturday evening.

    Valenz Joisil, 24, of Lynn, Massachusetts was arrested Sunday morning at a local hospital and charged with attempted murder and assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon in connection with the stabbing, according to police.

    Around 8:46 p.m. on Saturday, an officer discovered a victim believed to be in his late twenties suffering from multiple stab wounds. Medical staff at a local hospital later confirmed that the man had several non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the stabbing, authorities say.

    After conducting an investigation, officers named Joisil as a suspect in the incident, placed him in custody, and recovered a knife from his coat.
