DORCHESTER (MyFoxBoston.com) – A 17-year-old boy allegedly lured his ex-girlfriend to a Dorchester street, saying he had a pair of sneakers to give their baby, then restrained the young mom while his girlfriend stabbed her repeatedly as the baby sat in a stroller, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said. The 8-month-old child was not hurt.
Samia Jones, 17, who allegedly wielded the knife, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Dorchester Municipal Court to a charge of assault with intent to murder for allegedly stabbing the victim six times with a butcher's knife at about 4 p.m. Monday on Midland Street in Savin Hill. Jones has been ordered held on $50,000 bail.
If Jones makes bail, she must wear a GPS device under house arrest.
The victim told police she was contacted by cellphone to meet Daquan Sparks on Midland Street near the station, according to The Boston Globe. The victim said Sparks met her there and restrained her while Jones attacked. Detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for Sparks.
Police say the victim, in her early 20s, collapsed outside an ice cream shop where customers rushed to help her.
The victim was rushed to Boston Medical Center with injuries to her back, leg, face, and torso. Her injuries are not life-threatening. Her name was not released.
Jones is due back in court April 23.
