The Winthrop Stabbing


Casey Petersen, Writer

A few weekends ago, on Sunday November 6th, 2022, a man in Winthrop Massachusetts was brutally stabbed multiple times.  The stabbing was located between Shirley Street and Crystal Cove, where the police responded. The stab victim was rushed to Mass General Hospital with drastic injuries. I caught up with a member of the town administration to find out what happened, and here is what they had to say:

Casey Petersen: “Can you tell me a little bit about the stabbing that occurred on Shirley street this past Sunday?”

Them: “The stabbing was a result from a domestic violence incident at the Crystal Cove Condos at 600 Shirley street. They responded to a bleeding male on the street who is still unidentified. It is still unknown at this time where on the body the stab wounds are located, but there were multiple. The individual walked to a local liquor store while bleeding, leaving a blood trail. The police responded after he made his purchase where he then “disrobed” and was taken to Mass General for treatment. His condition is unknown at this time. An arrest was made following the investigation by the Winthrop Police Department.”

Thank you to the member of the town administration for sharing this information. Please Reach out to authorities if you are ever in a domestic violence situation. You can reach out by using The Domestic Violence Hotline (DVH) at 600-799-7233
