Quincy: Store employee stabbed by co-worker

(AP) – Police say an employee of a Quincy home improvement store has been charged with stabbing a co-worker.

Chief Paul Keenan says the victim was stabbed in the leg during an altercation just before 8 a.m. Thursday.

Police say the victim, 37-year-old Corey Fredrick of Cambridge, Mass., may have been stabbed in the femoral artery, given the amount of blood at the scene, and is in critical condition at a Boston hospital where he is undergoing surgery.

The suspect, 36-year-old Jamal Boyd of Boston, fled into the nearby woods after the stabbing. He was contacted on his cellphone by an officer and returned to the store and surrendered.

He faces charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He is expected to be arraigned Friday morning in Quincy District Court.
