The 29-year-old victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital and is in stable condition.

McGuire said the men are charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon. They are scheduled to be arraigned Monday at Boston Municipal Court. Police are not releasing the identities of the two men.

Police also issued a licensed premise violation against the nightclub “for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon by a patron on employee,” she said.
