Arrest Made in Connection With Stabbing in Boston's Chinatown

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.

Joisil is expected in Boston Municipal Court but the date of his court appearance has not yet been released. It is unclear whether he has an attorney.
