Police: Woman facing charges in road rage stabbing outside Newton ice rink

NEWTON, Mass. — A woman has been arrested in connection with a road rage stabbing outside of an ice rink in Newton last week that may have stemmed from an encounter on Interstate 93, authorities announced Wednesday.

Imani Abraham, 27, of Dorchester, is slated to be arraigned in Newton District Court on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to Massachusetts State Police.

Troopers responding to a report of a stabbing at the Daly Rink at 4 Nonantum Road in Newton on May 4 found a 32-year-old Quincy man suffering from a stab wound to his leg.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

A subsequent investigation revealed that Abraham followed the victim to the rink after their vehicles nearly came into contact on a stretch of I-93 that runs through Boston’s Dorchester section, state police said. Upon reaching the rink, Abraham allegedly got out of her car, approached the victim, and stabbed him before driving away.

Abraham was arrested without incident at her place of employment in Braintree.

An investigation remains ongoing.
