BOSTON — A man is facing charges after allegedly stabbing another person inside a Star Market in Boston on Tuesday afternoon, law enforcement officials said.
Trevor Charlton, 47 of Hyde Park, is slated to be arraigned Wednesday in Dorchester District Court on a charge of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, according to the Boston Police Department.
Families who shop with their children at the River Street store in Mattapan say it’s concerning to have violence in such a public place.
“It’s usually just a very quiet place, lots of children lots of families,” one shopper said.
Boston police responded to the stabbing shortly after 3:30 p.m. The victim was rushed to an area hospital and is expected to be OK.
A shopper says she learned from police on the scene that it was workplace violence.
“They just said it was a dispute between employees and I was like ok but yeah I’ve never seen anything like that before here I mean it’s usually just a very quiet place,” one shopper said.
Police are still trying to figure out what led up to the stabbing.
In a statement, Star Market officials s“We work diligently to provide a safe shopping and workplace environment.”
An investigation remains ongoing.
