Man Accused of Stabbing Waitress Remains at Large

Police have identified the man that allegedly stabbed a waitress outside a restaurant in Chelsea, Massachusetts on Monday night.

Authorities say Geraldo Reyes is still at large and faces charges of armed assault with intent to murder.

Chelsea police said the stabbing happened around 11 p.m. near Washington Avenue and Blossom Street.

The victim, identified only as a woman in her early 30s, was working her shift as a waitress at the Las Pupusas Del Chino when the suspect skipped out on his $100 bill right before closing time.

Co-workers said the suspect told the waitress he had money in his car. When the victim followed him outside, the pair was seen struggling and then the waitress jumped into the car to avoid being hit when the suspect put the car in reverse.

The waitress, who is described as a hard worker, was found a block away with slashes to her neck and right hand. The suspect then fled the scene.

The victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital and returned home Tuesday morning where she is resting after being treated for her injuries.

"It was something really awful," restaurant manager Gilberto Ramos said. "They showed me some pictures of what happened. I feel really bad for her and her family."

Tuesday evening, police released surveillance footage of the car they say was involved. The footage shows a red sedan, possibly a Nissan with Colorado plates reading "GAQ633."

An arrest has not yet been made.

Police are hoping the public knows of Reyes' whereabouts so they can speak with him.

"They say he has been in the restaurant in the past," police Capt. Keith Hougton said. "That's what detectives are following up on."

Anyone with information is asked to call 617-466-4880.
