Suspect arrested after 4 girls injured in stabbing at AMC movie theater near Boston

The Braintree Theater Stabbing Incident

Reports from Braintree indicate that a male suspect has been apprehended in connection with an alarming stabbing incident that left four girls injured in an AMC movie theater, situated just south of Boston. According to CBS Boston, there are suspicions that the same suspect might have been involved in another assault that occurred at a McDonald’s restaurant in Plymouth.

Details of the Incident

The unsettling event took place at a Braintree AMC multiplex at approximately 6 p.m. local time, as reported by the Braintree Police Department. The suspect reportedly entered the theater without a ticket and proceeded to attack the four girls, ages 9 to 17, without any provocation. Fortunately, the girls sustained non-life-threatening injuries and are currently receiving medical care.

Witness Accounts

Witnesses at the scene expressed their shock and dismay at the incident. Matteo Rojas, present at the theater during the stabbing, shared, “It’s so heartbreaking that’s what I’ll be thinking about the rest of the night is seeing those kids coming down the steps and just crying. They looked really stunned like they just saw a horror movie, not a kid’s movie.” An AMC employee described the suspect as wearing an “oversized trench coat, sunglasses, and a long blonde wig.”

Connection to Another Assault

After the stabbing, the suspect fled in a black SUV, but authorities managed to track him down in Plymouth following a “similar assault” at a McDonald’s restaurant. Subsequent investigations suggest a likely connection to an earlier incident at a movie theater in Braintree, emphasizing the seriousness of the situation.

Further Developments

The suspect was eventually captured after a car chase that ended in Sandwich, located south of Plymouth. Sources have indicated a potential link to a murder investigation in Deep River, Connecticut, with the suspect being described as armed and dangerous.
