Suspect arrested in connection with Worcester double stabbing

WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - A man was arrested Wednesday morning after two people were found stabbed on a street in Worcester, officials said.

Carlos Rodriguez, 38, is facing multiple charges, including two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to the Worcester Police Department.

Officers responding to a reported stabbing on Queen Street around 6:45 a.m. found a 22-year-old man suffering from a stab wound to his back and a 19-year-old victim suffering from a stab wound to his chest.

Both victims were taken to a local hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say a preliminary investigation suggests a verbal argument turned into a physical altercation between Rodriguez and the two victims.

It’s not clear when Rodriguez will be called to court.
