In another shooting in the Dorchester area Monday, a man suffered life-threatening wounds in an attack at the corner of Dacia and Quincy Street (shown here), according to the Boston Police Department.

A young mother was stabbed repeatedly, apparently while pushing her baby in a stroller, in Dorchester Monday afternoon, a witness to the shocking attack said.

Boston police responded to a stabbing at 15 Midland St. in the Savin Hill neighborhood of Dorchester about 4 p.m., said police spokesman David ­Estrada.

The mother, who told witnesses she was 21 years old, collapsed in front of an ice cream shop on Savin Hill Avenue, said Joe Conway, the owner of Savin Scoop at 107 Savin Hill Ave .

Conway said the woman ­appeared to suffer stab wounds to her chest, back, and leg. While he and a neighbor ­applied pressure to the woman’s wounds, other neighbors took care of the baby boy, who appeared to be between 10 months and 1 year old, ­Conway added.

The woman suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening and was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, police said.

The child ­appeared unhurt, said Conway. The ice cream shop owner described a grim scene with the stroller and sidewalk covered in blood.

Police arrested a 17-year-old woman, Samia Jones, in the attack and charged her with intent to murder. She will be arraigned Tuesday in Dorchester District Court.

In a similar scene in the state of Georgia just a few weeks earlier, a mother was ­attacked while pushing her ­baby boy in a stroller down a Beaumont street. The 13-month-old was shot and killed.

“In this type of neighborhood, everyone is tightknit; we watch out for everyone,” ­Conway said, referring to Savin Hill. “It was cowardly to attack a young mother like that.”

Also in Dorchester on Monday, just hours before the stabbing, a man was shot and taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries, Boston police said.

Police said they are investigating the shooting at Dacia and Quincy streets.

No information was available Monday night on the man’s condition, and no arrests had been made, police said.

Winthrop Elementary School at 35 Brookford St., went into lockdown for one hour, and no one was allowed in or out of the building while police searched for the shooter, said Lee McGuire, spokesman for the Boston public school system.

The shooting came one day after a 26-year-old man died at Brigham and Women’s after ­being shot in Jamaica Plain.
