Neighbors interviewed on Chelsea Street Saturday described a grisly scene, with a great deal of blood on the sidewalk. No blood was visible by late Saturday afternoon.

“I went outside and I saw the young man,” said a neighbor who lives across the street and asked that her name be withheld to protect her safety. “His throat was sliced.”

The woman said she believed a party may have been going on in an upstairs apartment in the Chelsea Street building, a two-story structure with vinyl siding.

She said there appeared to be a large number of people in an upstairs apartment when a commotion outside attracted her family’s attention early Saturday. She said she did not hear any loud music or other noise coming from inside, however.

“All I heard was the bumping and the thumping,” she said, explaining that she saw the injured man knocking on a door. “He was trying to bang in to get in, and no one would let him in.”

The woman said the scene upset her deeply. “I cried. This is somebody’s son,” she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Everett Police department at 617-389-2120 or 617-394-2368, or to contact the State Police assigned to the Middlesex district attorney’s office at 781-897-6600.
