Quincy Man Charged with Assault for Somerville Stabbing

Joseph Beaton, 25 of Duxbury, was arrested last week in Quincy for allegedly stabbing a man in Somerville, Massachusetts. On March 17, 2009, Somerville Police responded to a call that a man had been stabbed twice in the chest, as well as a wound to his elbow. Beaton was arrested on March 19 in Quincy.

The Somerville Police investigation resulting from this incident led police to Beaton, who is reported to have made incriminating statements implicating himself in the assault or stabbing. The victim’s girlfriend later told Somerville Police that Beaton got into a fight at a party with the Somerville resident, and then stabbed him as a result.

After the assault, the victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital where he was treated for his stab wounds. Although the Somerville man’s condition was initially listed as ‘critical’, it was later changed to ‘life threatening.’

Beaton is expected to be arraigned in Quincy District Court on Monday and charged with Assault, Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, and Assault with Intent to Murder.
