Man arraigned in connection with Downtown Crossing stabbing

BOSTON (WHDH) — A man was arraigned Wednesday in connection with a stabbing earlier this week in Boston’s Downtown Crossing.

Prosecutors said 20-year-old Davongie Stone and another person attacked and robbed a man outside the Primark department store early Sunday morning. Prosecutors said the man was stabbed several times in the chest, piercing his heart. The man was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and remains in critical condition.

Police said they used surveillance video to trace Stone’s steps and got his handprint from the Downtown Crossing MBTA Station. Stone is also facing charges in connection with two stabbings in Harvard Square on Saturday.

Stone is being held on $500,00 cash bail.
