Police arrest 27-year-old man wanted in non-fatal Everett stabbing

The March 16 incident was one of two attacks on Bradford Terrace within 10 days, the second one fatal.

Authorities have arrested a 27-year-old Everett man wanted in connection to a non-fatal stabbing there last month, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.

Victor Mariscal was apprehended Thursday evening in Cambridge after he was identified through a sketch, prosecutors say.

“Ultimately a member of the public was able to identify the alleged suspect as a result of the sketch and through the diligent work of investigators assigned to my office, State Police, and Everett Police, we were able to place him into custody,” District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement.

Officials said a 28-year-old Everett man was stabbed around 9 p.m. on March 16 as he was walking home on Bradford Terrace. He was brought to a hospital with serious injuries and survived, according to authorities.

“While we continue [to] investigate, we hope this arrest will restore some comfort to the residents of the Bradford Terrace neighborhood,” Everett police Chief Steven Mazzie said in a statement.

Both Ryan and Everett Mayor Carlos DeMaria praised the public for its help in assisting investigators, including by sharing information over social media.

“We spared no expense and used all our resources to make this arrest,” DeMaria said.

Mariscal faces charges of armed assault with the intent to murder and assault and battery causing serious bodily injury, officials said. He was scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Malden District Court.

Mariscal’s alleged attack was the first of two stabbings within 10 days on the same street, according to police.

The second left 54-year-old Michael Starr dead after he was stabbed around 9 p.m. on March 26 as he walked down Bradford Terrace on his way home from a store on Ferry Street, authorities said.

The incident appeared to be random based on preliminary information, Marian’s office has said.

Authorities are still investigating whether the two incidents are related.
