EAST BOSTON — Boston Police are looking for people caught on surveillance video after a stabbing in East Boston.

Police released pictures of a man and two women who were in the vicinity of Medallo's Bar.

No arrests have been made. Boston Police are still investigating.

“It’s a hard situation, especially when something scary happens in your neighborhood, you may be concerned about your own safety but if it were up to me I’d want to live I a safer neighborhood, so if you know anything definitely come forward and say something," said Tom Ford, who lives nearby.
