Man Wanted on Stabbing Charge Arrested At Sullivan Square
Christopher Linton is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
A man wanted in connection to a stabbing earlier in May was arrested Thursday at Sullivan Square.
Christopher Linton, 18, of 2 Sanger St. was wanted on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for allegedly stabbing a person he lived with on May 7 with a knife, according to a press release from police Lt. Paul Covino.
Police believe Linton was aware of the warrant and had been staying in Boston to avoid arrest since the incident, the press release said.
But about 1 p.m. Thursday, Medford police Sgt. James Grubb spotted Linton boarding a 101 bus in South Medford bound for Sullivan Station in Charlestown, the press release said.
Officers followed the bus to Charlestown and caught up to Linton before he left the station's gated entrance, the release said. Boston and Transit Police Departments assisted with the arrest, the release said.
