Six stabbed in Dorchester

Six people were taken to local hospitals after being stabbed early Saturday morning at a Leroy Street home in Dorchester, according to Boston police.

Police received a call at 4:48 a.m. from 6 Leroy St. and initially believed that one person had life-threatening injuries, but a police spokeswoman said later Saturday morning that all six were expected to survive.

Details on the conditions of the victims and their names were not released, but a police spokesman said Saturday afternoon that they were stabbed by one man.

The scene of the stabbing was a white three-decker on Leroy, a short residential street off Dorchester’s Geneva Avenue.

A Boston police officer stood watch Saturday morning on the porch of the building, which was blocked off with yellow police tape.

The officer said Leroy Street had been the site of frequent disturbances over the summer, usually late-night parties that sometimes resulted in fights. However, the officer did not recall responding to any calls at the house where the stabbings occurred.

A neighbor said a “group of guys” lived in one of the apartments in the three-decker.

“It’s crazy,” said the neighbor, a 30-year-old who would only give his first name, Luis. “I used to see those guys and say, ‘what’s up?’ . . . I got young cousins living with me here; 13, 14, 15, years old. I worry about them walking around here.”
