BU Researcher Stabbed in Brookline Robbery
Two suspects sought
A research assistant from the BU Medical Campus was stabbed, punched, and robbed of an iPad by two assailants at 8:32 p.m. Tuesday at the corner of Pleasant Street and Browne Street in Brookline. The victim, a 30-year-old postdoctoral fellow, was treated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for two superficial stab wounds.
In an emergency alert sent out to the BU community just after 9 p.m., Boston University Police described the suspects as two males, both about six feet tall, both wearing knit caps pulled over their faces. They were said to be wearing fleece pullovers and jeans.
BU Police, Brookline Police, and State Police are searching the area, about five blocks from West Campus, for the suspects.
The BUPD is urging people to avoid the area at this time.128 Comments
