Woman assaulted at office

A woman was assaulted at her work in the Quincy Career Center when a man filing for unemployment pulled out a knife, police said.

The suspect, a 51-year-old male from Weymouth, was at the Career Center at 4:05 p.m. Tuesday when the victim brought him into her cubicle to process his claim, police said.

According to police, after the claim was processed, the woman said he was all set. Suddenly, the man pulled a 6-inch blade out from his pocket, pointed the knife to the victim’s chest, and asked, “Do you want to be my blood sister?”

The victim responded "no," and jumped back from her chair. Upon hearing this, the man said, “Have a nice day,” and left the building towards Quincy Center, police said.

The woman was shaken up, but otherwise unharmed. Police have not found the man, but have filed a claim for assault by means of a dangerous weapon. If police cannot find him, a warrant will be put out for his arrest, police said.

Overdose victim revived by police
Police received a call at 2:25 p.m. at 25 Independence Ave that a 50-year-old male had overdosed on opiates at a coin laundry, police said.

Fire teams responses to the area, quickly followed by police, who carry Narcan nasal applicators with them in their vehicles.

According to Captain John Dougan with the Quincy Police, Narcan is a receptor inhibitor that immediately knocks the drug inhibitors off the receptors in the brain, bringing drug users off their high.

Officer Michael Powers and Sergeant Sean Duggan administered the Narcan when EMTs arrived, and handed the applicator to the EMT to revive the victim.

The victim was in respiratory arrest until the applicator was administered, then was immediately revived and was conscious and in stable condition.

The victim was transported to Quincy Medical Center for further treatment.
