Ricardo Garcia, 23, of Malden, was arrested last Friday for allegedly stabbing another man in the chest at Tommy Doyle’s Pub in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Garcia was formally charged with Armed Assault to Murder, Resisting Arrest and Possession of Class E Drugs.
According to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, Cambridge Police Officers responded to the Cambridge bar at approximately 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning and found a 48 year old Somerville man bleeding from the chest. He was able to inform officers that he was trying to break up a fight in the bar when another man came and stabbed him in the chest.
The alleged stabber, Ricardo Garcia, was held by the bar staff until Cambridge Police Officers arrived. A search of Garcia allegedly yielded a folding knife and several illegal pills.
Apparently, the other man involved in the fight had already been asked to leave before Cambridge Police arrived, and it is not clear if his identity is known and/or whether additional charges will be sought.
