Ted Wayman, a reporter for WCVB-TV Channel 5, is recovering after he was stabbed in Copley Square while reporting on a story Sunday night, according to the station.

Wayman was taken to a local hospital and is “going to be fine,” said Ro Dooley Webster, a spokeswoman for WCVB-TV.

A photojournalist who was working with Wayman on Sunday assisted him with his injuries; the photojournalist was not injured.

Boston police said they could not comment on or confirm the incident. They announced Monday that they had arrested a 44-year-old Boston man Sunday night after an alleged stabbing in the area of Dartmouth and Boylston streets at about 9:05 p.m., but did not name the victim.
