BU police seek woman in stabbing on Commonwealth Avenue

The woman is described as Asian with black shoulder-length hair.

Boston University police are asking for the public’s help in finding a woman who allegedly stabbed a person on Commonwealth Avenue on Thursday night.

BU police tweeted a plea saying they were investigating the stabbing, which happened just before 8:30 p.m. at 855 Commonwealth Ave. Upon arrival, police found a person suffering from non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said they had identified the suspect as a 35-year-old Asian woman with a slim build and shoulder-length black hair. Police said the suspect fled from the scene after the stabbing, and they don’t believe she’s on the B.U. campus. 


Police said there is no threat to the public. Investigators believe the suspect and the victim knew each other.
