Fall River Police charge man in Tent City stabbing



Fall River Police have charged a man in a stabbing in Fall River Sunday.

According to Detective John Robinson, on July 8th at approximately 6:00 p.m., Fall River Police Department Uniform Division Officers were dispatched to ‘Tent City’ on Brayton Avenue in regards to a possible stabbing. Upon his arrival, Officer Brandon Pacheco located witnesses who informed him that three men were fishing when they decided to collect some wood for a campfire. When they took wood from the ‘Tent City’ area, a 33-year-old tent city resident became angry and confronted the three fishermen and told them to leave the area.

The 33-year-old male threw an ax in the direction of the fishermen. This started a fight. During the fight, the 33-year-old male was stabbed in the chest and a 30-year-old male was bitten by a dog. The 33-year-old male was transported to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment of his ‘non-life threatening’ injury.
