011715i-Broadway-near-Hinkley-Street-stabbingSomerville Police are seeking help with the investigation of a stabbing on or near Broadway just before 1:25 a.m.

That’s when police responded to a 911 call reporting a person on the ground on Broadway near Hinkley Street. They found a man suffering from life-threatening injuries, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said. The victim, identified as a 27 year-old Somerville resident, was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.

“This is an active investigation,” Ryan said. “Evidence gathered so far indicates that the victim may have been with an acquaintance walking down the street shortly before the stabbing occurred. Anyone who may have seen something in the area of the Dunkin’ Donuts store on Broadway early this morning is asked to come forward in order to assist in apprehending the person or the people responsible for this crime.”

Authorities say a preliminary investigation indicates that the victim was stabbed on Hinkley Street but walked to Broadway, where he collapsed. The victim was seen walking with another person before the stabbing, police believe.

This case is being investigated by Somerville Police. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Somerville Police Department Detective Ernest Nadile at (617) 625-1600, Ext. 7235.
