Two park rangers were stabbed in the historic Boston Common on Tuesday afternoon with one receiving life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses told WCVB that the rangers were stabbed repeatedly in the torso, stomach and back by a man who lunged at them around 5 p.m. The rangers had approached the alleged stabber who'd been sitting upon a park monument.
The ranger with potentially life-threatening injuries was rushed to Massachusetts General Hospital and the other ranger was taken to Tufts Medical Center, according to My Fox Boston.
An officer retrieved something from the park's pond that might have been thrown in by the fleeing suspect, according to the Boston Globe.
Police tweeted a plea for witnesses to come forward with any information.
