Tenth Homicide of Year Caused by Stabbing Death

An Allston man was stabbed to death near the MBTA commuter rail stop on Sixth Street over the weekend.

It was the city’s 10th homicide of the year and word of it sent shock waves throughout the city.

The victim was identified as 28-year-old Joaquin Aguilar.

Chelsea Police Captain Keith Houghton said police were alerted by a passing motorist round 7:12 p.m. Saturday night that a man was lying in the road at the intersection of Arlington and Sixth Streets.

“The victim was unconscious and suffering from multiple stab wounds,” Houghton said. “He was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for emergency surgery, but he died of his injuries Sunday morning,” Houghton added.

Several neighbors who came out of their homes to find Aguilar lying in the street said blood was smeared on the side of a nearby car, according to police.

Most neighbors interviewed in this section of the city said they had never witnessed such a brutal attack in the immediate area.

Also, neighbors interviewed said they heard nothing – no screams – nothing.

Houghton said police believe the stabbing took place a few feet from where Aguilar

was found bleeding to death on the tarmac.

Police are apparently searching out surveillance camera evidence as well as forensic evidence which, Houghton said, would prove the stabbing took place in the area.

State and local police detectives are asking that anyone with information about the crime to call 617-466-4843 or 617-727-8817.
