Police: Boy, 13, Stabs Man Near Heart on Worcester Street

Police in Massachusetts have arrested a 13-year-old boy they say stabbed a man in the chest, narrowly missing the victim's heart.

Worcester police announced Monday that the 33-year-old victim told investigators he was walking near Illinois and Grand Streets at about 1 a.m. Saturday when he was approached by two young men.

One of them said something, but because the victim does not speak English he did not understand and tried to walk away. The victim told police that at that point he felt a blow to the chest and fell to the ground where he was kicked.

Police searched the area and based on the victim's description, apprehended a 19-year-old man and the juvenile in the area of Canterbury and Cambridge Streets.

The victim who was stabbed is expected to survive, according to police.

The juvenile is facing attempted murder and assault and battery charges. He will be arraigned at a future date.
