A 22-year-old man from Dorchester has been charged with a double stabbing inside the Park Street MBTA subway station a few hours after the Red Sox rally Monday at City Hall.
Christopher Casey was arrested overnight and will be arraigned today in Boston Municipal Court on a charge of assault while armed with intent to murder.
After the attack on the southbound platform of the Red Line, transit officials released released images taken from surveillance video of two men and a woman wanted in connection with stabbings. The man wearing a red hat in the video was identified as Casey by Joe Pesaturo, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
The victims -- a 19-year-old from Rockland and a 20-year-old from Abington -- were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Pesaturo said. The victims have been released from the hospital.
Transit police are no longer seeking the other two suspects. "The only person wanted in connection with the stabbing is in custody," Pesaturo said.
The other male suspect, Ariel Ortiz, 24, of Dorchester, will be summoned to court. Transit police will ask a clerk magistrate to issue an assault and battery complaint against Oritz, who allegedly threw a punch, Pesaturo said. The woman will not be charged.
