    Man allegedly stabs woman in Back Bay in apparent road-rage incident

    A woman was stabbed during an apparent road-rage incident in the Back Bay section of Boston on Thursday night, police said.

    The violence erupted near 61 Exeter St. just before 11:30 p.m., according to Boston police Officer Rachel McGuire, a department spokeswoman.

    She said in an e-mail that the stabbing appeared “to be a road-rage incident.” The woman, whose name and age weren’t disclosed, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Tufts Medical Center, McGuire wrote. No arrests had been made as of Friday morning.

    During the argument, the official said, one man jumped out from the car with four people and stabbed the woman sitting in the passenger seat of the other car. The victim was in her 20s, the official said. A black Jeep Cherokee vehicle was spotted fleeing the scene, authorities said.

    The crime scene is located near a number of chic hotels, restaurants, and shops.

    The incident occurred one day after another person was stabbed near Exeter and Boylston streets during a confrontation among homeless people, less than 250 feet from the Boston Marathon finish line.

    That person suffered minor injuries. Investigators do not believe the two stabbings are related.
