Indoor hoops game leads to knife slashing in Brighton


An indoor basketball game led to a knife attack in Brighton Tuesday afternoon, Boston police said. Jaun Sibriano, 33, of Brighton and Macguiber Solorzano, 23, of Allston became enraged and attacked two men during the game inside the victims’ Park Vale Avenue apartment, a police spokeswoman said. The victims ran to their bedroom and locked the door, which Sibriano and Solorzano broke down, police said, slashing a resident’s chest with a knife before his roommate knocked it from his hand with a baseball bat. Sibriano and Solorzano were arrested and charged with destruction or injury of personal property and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
