Officers responded to a report of a person stabbed at 1100 Massachusetts Ave., near the Stop & Shop in South Bay Center, around 9:58 p.m., said Officer Kim Tavares, a spokesperson for Boston police.

The victim walked into a local hospital, she said.

Around 11 p.m., a 39-year-old man from Dorchester was arrested in the area of Southampton Street and Dorchester Avenue in connection with the stabbing, Tavares said.
