Woman arrested in Back Bay melee that sent two women to hospital with stab wounds

Boston police arrested a woman Tuesday on charges stemming from last week’s bloody fight in the Back Bay that ended with two women being rushed to Boston hospitals with serious stab wounds.

Naomi Charles, 26, of Dorchester, was taken into custody near the Edward W. Brooke Courthouse on New Chardon Street in downtown Boston, police said. She was taken into custody for processing, but was unable to attend court on Tuesday, said the Suffolk district attorney’s office. Charles is set to be arraigned Wednesday in Boston Municipal Court on charges of assault with intent to murder, police said.

Police said they were also looking for a male suspect in connection with the stabbings.

Charles is accused of participating in a melee that occurred shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Hereford Street in the Back Bay on Friday, between Boylston and Newbury streets and steps from a Boston fire station, police said.

The victims were 19-year-old women, police said. They were taken to Boston Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital.

Both victims are expected to survive their injuries, according to the Suffolk district attorney’s office.
