Cambridge Man Charged with Stabbing of Boston College Student in Newton

A Cambridge man, who had already been released on bail on earlier Drug Charges, was re-arrested and arraigned in Brighton District Court this morning for stabbing a Boston College student in Newton on September 25.

The defendant, Francisco “Wizz” Ramirez, 18, of Cambridge, was arraigned in Brighton District Court on criminal charges including Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon for stabbing Jeremiah Hegarty.

Boston Police, Newton Police and Massachusetts State Police involved in the stabbing investigation report that Ramirez stabbed the Boston College student near his dormitory after 3:00 a.m. on the morning of September 25. The incident was allegedly initiated when Ramirez, along with four other people, tried to gain access to the dorm. When they were told to leave, a physical altercation ensued that resulted in one student getting kicked, and Hegarty being stabbed.

A second defendant, Santos Carrasquillo, was also arraigned on charges of Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon for allegedly kicking the other Boston College student.
