BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Two teens were stabbed in Boston's Back Bay Friday and taken to area hospitals.
At about 3 p.m., two female teens were stabbed near 66 Hereford St., police say. A fight occurred between the pair, according to police, but a total of five people were allegedly involved. A witness said they looked to be in their late teens to early 20's.
Ryan Palmer witnessed the altercation from a window in a restaurant where he was working.
"We took notice, we saw two girls fighting; one of them had blue hair, the other one had blonde hair. And they ended up getting out of our field of vision so we didn't actually see a stabbing happening, but then I saw three other individuals take off towards Dalton Street," Palmer said.
Nick Garcia works at the Cactus Club and also saw the stabbing unfold.
"There was a scuffle happening on the side walk, it looked like two groups of people, two groups of girls mostly were pulling each others hair, scratching each other, sort of roughing each other up on the side walk," he said.
Firefighters from the nearby fire department and a detail cop rushed to the scene to help. Boston Police Supt. Bernie O'Rourke said the two teens were rushed to the hospital.
"Two females were stabbed. Both of those females, one was 18 years old, one was 19 years old, were transported to area hospitals. One is in stable condition, the other is stable, but critical," he said.
Police saw a trail of blood leading into the Prudential Shopping Center, where police say there may be additional evidence.
Back Bay residents are concerned after the incident.
"I thought it was crazy, I mean, I've lived in the city the past three and half years, I haven't seen anything like that in the city before," a resident said.
Police are looking for a black male wearing multi-colored sneakers and a black female wearing black pants with a green stripe and a green streak in her hair. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Boston Police.
As of Friday evening, the teens were both in stable condition at the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
