January 29, 2019

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have made an arrest in the fatal stabbing of an 18-year-old man near a Massachusetts college campus.

A spokeswoman for the Middlesex district attorney says the victim was stabbed just after 7 p.m. Monday near the University of Massachusetts Lowell’s East Campus.

The victim was not a student at the school.

The teen, Asiatic Alvarez, of Lowell, was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The DA on Tuesday said 21-year-old Victor Crespo was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. Authorities say the victim and suspect knew each other and arranged to meet for a marijuana transaction.

Crespo is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. It was not clear if he has a lawyer.
