A man accused of stabbing several females at a Massachusetts movie theater has been arrested after a crash.

According to Braintree Police, at approximately 6:00 p.m., a male came into AMC Braintree 10 at 121 Grandview Avenue. He proceeded past the ticket counter and entered one of the theaters without paying. Inside of that theater, he encountered four young females. Without saying anything and without any warning, he suddenly attacked and stabbed the four young females. The attack appeared to be unprovoked. After the attack, the man ran out of the theater and left in a vehicle. Braintree Police, Braintree Fire, and Brewster Paramedics arrived on-scene to treat the victims. 

The investigation and suspect search began immediately. The females, ages from 9 years to 17 years, all sustained non-life-threatening injuries. All were transported to Boston hospitals for treatment. 

Braintree Police Patrol Officers and Detectives were able to quickly review video footage and retrace the suspect’s movements. They discovered that he had left the AMC Braintree 10 in what appeared to be a black SUV. Using various investigative techniques, the officers were able to see that the suspect was no longer in the area. There was also video footage that allowed authorities to capture a license plate. A general broadcast was put out to law enforcement. 

According to Massachusetts State Police, at just after 7:00 p.m., the State Police began receiving 911 calls for a reported stabbing at the McDonalds inside the Route 3 Park and Ride in Plymouth. Troopers located a 21-year-old female and a 29-year-old male with apparent stab wounds. Both were transported to area hospitals with non-life threating injuries. A description of the suspect’s vehicle was given which helped Troopers locate the vehicle operating on a public way in Sandwich.  Troopers attempted to pull the vehicle over, but it failed to stop.  The suspect crashed the vehicle and was taken into custody shortly thereafter by Sandwich and State Police. He is currently being treated at an area hospital.

It appears as though the crimes are related. Braintree Police will release more details at a later time.

    Keep in mind Mass pols are actively crafting legislation to prevent people from legally carrying firearms to protect themselves and others from lunatics like this. They don’t care they have Mass State police protection 24/7 but you? forget it

    • They are people too

      If mental health was taken more seriously in this country, this guy may have been treated before instead of after this all happened. Instead, we’ve got a bunch of untrained, trigger happy gun owners running around.

        You couldn’t fathom the depths of depravity that psychological programming can and will manifest. But to have a conversation on such sensitive matters with simple minded pseudo-sentients would be detrimental to my own sanity. Instead we can attempt to undermine one anothers rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness with fruitless dialouge about who can and can’t possess a firearm. The pursuit of irrelevance and constant chatter on mundane existential theories, does not excite me. In fact you are boring me.
