Four people stabbed at Massachusetts movie theater, suspect arrested, police say

Four girls were injured, but their lives are not in danger, police said.

A man is in custody after allegedly stabbing four girls at a movie theater in Braintree, Massachusetts, Braintree police said.

At 6 p.m. Saturday evening, a man entered AMC Braintree 10 and entered one of the theaters, authorities said.

Once inside the theater, the suspect stabbed four women aged 9 to 17, police said, adding that the attack appeared unprovoked and without warning. All four girls suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Boston hospitals for treatment, police said.

The suspect allegedly left the scene in a black SUV, police said. Using video footage as part of their investigation, police were able to identify a license plate and alert other law enforcement.

It was after this alert that authorities discovered that a car matching the description was involved in a “similar assault” in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Around 7:04 a.m., about an hour after the stabbing at AMC in Braintree, the suspect allegedly stabbed two other people — a 21-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man — at a McDonald’s in Plymouth, Massachusetts , Massachusetts State Police said. Both are not in danger and were transported to area hospitals, MSP said.

During a chase with Massachusetts State Police, the suspect crashed in Sandwich, Massachusetts and was taken into custody.

Authorities currently believe the two incidents are related, Braintree police said.
