A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death during a burglary at a house in Roslindale
The teenager suffered multiple stab wounds after two other teenage girls allegedly broke into their family home.
According to officials, a 16-year-old girl and another person were stabbed to death in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston on Wednesday afternoon.
According to Boston police, one person was stabbed to death at 1 Lesher St. and another at 100 Brookway Road, just a few blocks away. When officers arrived at the Brookway address at 4 p.m., they found that both victims had suffered stab wounds. They were transported to local hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries.
It is unclear whether the two stabbings were related.
A resident of 100 Brookway Road told WCVB that one of the victims was their teenage granddaughter. She said the teenager was stabbed multiple times by two other teenage girls who allegedly broke into the family home. The woman said she fought off the attackers.
According to the WCVB report, another witness saw the two suspects run from the building. According to the news outlet, one had a head injury and the other was reportedly holding multiple knives.
“The girls who went in there stormed down the stairs. They’re all covered in blood. Because they were wearing white it was really obvious,” the local resident told WCVB. “A girl, there’s nothing about her. She just stands there. The other girl has a bundle of knives, about four knives, in her hand. But they were kitchen knives.”
Police have not announced any arrests in connection with the stabbings.
