Natick man sought in stabbing death

NATICK

A Natick man is being sought by the Boston police today after the death of a man he allegedly stabbed on Lansdowne Street in November.

Oscar Rosa, 20, is facing murder charges in the stabbing of Craig Viera on Nov. 26 at about 2:15 a.m. Patrol officers spotted a fight on Lansdowne Street and discovered that Viera had been stabbed. Officers chased several men who ran from the scene and arrested Rosa after he allegedly discarded a knife.

Rosa was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and released on bail.

Viera was taken to Boston Medical Center. He died Friday and the charges against Rosa were upgraded to murder.

The police are asking for the public's help in finding Rosa.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact Boston Police Homicide Detectives at 617-343-4470 or 1-800-494-TIPS.
