Knife-wielding madman attacks 4 girls at AMC theatre, 2 others at McDonald’s in Massachusets stabbing spree: police

A knife-wielding madman, connected to a murder investigation, attacked four girls inside a movie theatre before injuring two others at a McDonald’s during his stabbing spree on Saturday.

The unprovoked attacks began around 6 p.m. inside the AMC Braintree 10 when the armed suspect walked into the complex, past the ticket booth and entered one of the theaters without paying.

The suspect stabbed the four girls, whose ages ranged from 9 to 17, without saying a word, Braintree police said Saturday night.

The girls were rushed to Boston-area hospitals and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

An AMC employee working concessions at the time of the initial stabbings described the man as wearing “an oversized trench coat, sunglasses, and a long blonde wig,” according to CBS Boston.

After fleeing from the multiplex in a black SUV, the man drove over 30 miles to Plymouth, MA., where he is believed to have been involved in another “similar assault” at a McDonald’s.

At around 7:09 p.m. Massachusetts State Troopers responded to the McDonald’s at the Rt. 3 Park and Ride in Plymouth, MA. where they discovered a 21-year-old female and a 29-year-old male suffering from apparent stab wounds.

They were also treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

“Preliminary investigation suggests a likely connection to an earlier incident at a movie theatre in Braintree resulting in non-life threatening injuries to four juveniles,” the Massachusetts State Police said.

He was taken into custody and is currently being treated for injuries at a hospital.

The suspected attacker is also believed to be linked to a murder investigation in Deep River, Connecticut.

“At approximately 3:36 p.m., Connecticut State Police Troop F – Westbrook responded to a report of a disturbance at an address in the town of Deep River,” CSP announced.

One person was found dead at the scene and “a suspect in this investigation has been taken into custody in the State of Massachusetts and there is no active threat to the public.”

Connecticut State Police issued an alert earlier on Saturday for the suspect, describing him as “armed and dangerous” with a 10-inch knife, CBS Boston reported.
