[UPDATE] Stabbing, Baseball Bat Assault on Washington Street

Three men arrested in connection with the alleged assault on Monday night.

UPDATE: Wednesday, July 18, 10:10 a.m.

Three men were arrested after a fight Monday night that led to a man getting hit in the head with a baseball bat and another man stabbed in the shoulder, according to a press release.

At 8:38 p.m. on Monday, police received multiple calls reporting a fight at the intersection of Washington Street and Myrtle Street, according to the release. When officers arrived shortly thereafter, they found an assault victim laying in the street and a vehicle driving away from the area, which was stopped by police a short distance from the scene.

Police, fire and EMS personnel began to treat the assault victim in the street and learned he had been allegedly struck in the head with a baseball bat. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Officers interviewed the people who had been in the vehicle driving away from the scene and learned the driver had been stabbed in the shoulder, and during the interviews, a male approached the driver as he was seated on the sidewalk and struck him over the head with a wooden cane.  

Three people were taken to area hospitals for injuries sustained during the fight.

The investigation revealed that "this assault was not a random act and occurred as retaliation for another fight several days ago," the release said. "All individuals involved have been identified and located."

Arrested in connection with the Monday night assault were Douglas Clark of Saugus, charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and conspiracy; Duilio Fabbo of Peabody,charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy; and Frank Rivera, Jr. of Stoneham, charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon. All three were transported to Woburn District Court for arraignment.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing, police said.

Stoneham Police were assisted by the Burlington, Reading, Wakefield and State Police Departments during the incident.

Sounds like Cambridge may be a better match for you. Stoneham is an actual working class community. We provide the money for the inner cities.

I posted on this article this morning giving actual events that took place leading up to this incident(along with my opinion of small town PD), and it was taken down. Why? Does the truth hurt? To repeat a little of what I said, the person who was assaulted in this matter (aka, THE GUY WITH THE KNIFE), should have been arrested days earlier for assault and battery of a minor (16 years old) but stoneham failed to charge the party, which lead to court being held in the street. Whether or not you agree with the retaliation or not, this was certainly not an upstanding citizen who was assaulted... Infact I happen to know he was a junkie criminal, and if Stonehams "finest" had done what they were paid to do, you could have added assault and battery of a minor to his record, which would have most certainly avoided the second incident.

I agree with. thetruth8. Grew up with the people involved and they were drug dealing dirt bags then. Why they were never locked up is mind blowing. Hope they all go to jail.

Nothing for nothing if they were dealing drugs and had beat up a minor and the police didn't do anything about it then, GOOD for the two that did something about it.. Like the truth8 said if they arrested the person for assault and batter on a minor it would have never escalated to this.. Just saying..
