Medford Police Make Arrest in ‘Jogger Stabbing’

Craig Alan Bourque was arrested yesterday by Medford Police in connection with the stabbing of a jogger last week. Bourque, 23, of Great Barrington, was formally charged with Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon.

The Medford Police Department alleges that Bourque, along with three others, were involved in the “random” attack and stabbing of a Medford jogger on March 17. The jogger, who is expected to be released from this hospital this week, told police that nothing was stolen during the attack, leading police to believe that the alleged attack was random and the motive for such unclear.

At this time, only Craig Alan Bourque has been arrested in connection with the stabbing, and police are still reportedly searching for three other persons.

It’s unclear how Medford Police were initially led to Craig Alan Bourque, but he was initially questioned about the stabbing the same night it occurred. According to poilce, who reportedly didn’t have enough probable cause to immediately arrest him, told officers he was in Somerville with a friend at the time. The Medford Police have not revealed, however, what additional evidence they learned to believe that Bourque was involved in this incident.

The Massachusetts felony crime of Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon carries up to 10 years in state prison or 2.5 years in the House of Correction.
