At about 3:30 AM on Saturday, February 18, 2017, officers from District A-1 (Downtown) responded to a radio call for a stabbing in the area of 800 Washington Street, Tufts Medical Center.
Upon arrival, officers observed a victim suffering from what appeared to be serious but non-life-threatening stab wounds. The officers were informed that the incident had occurred inside a residence at 110 Stuart Street. Officers responded to the residence and immediately observed blood splatters and the alleged suspect, 32-year-old Daniel Asher of Boston. The officers placed the suspect under arrest and charged him with Assault and Battery by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (Knife). Officers froze the residence and returned with a warrant allowing officers to search for the weapon used in the crime. As officers processed the scene, they observed in plain view a large quantity of marijuana, paraphernalia consistent with the sale of marijuana, and US currency. Further investigation led officers to recover over 30 pounds of marijuana and approximately $22,000 in US paper currency.
Asher was additionally charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Class D Drugs (Marijuana). The incident remains under investigation.
