A Worcester teen was arrested on Saturday night after a knife fight at a home on Constitution Drive left two with non-life-threatening stab wounds. Turns out the teen is the son of a candidate running for state representative in Worcester.
Reports the Worcester Telegram:
The suspect is the son of William J. McCarthy, who is a candidate for the seat currently held by state Rep. James J. O’Day, D-Worcester, and president of the Worcester County Republican Club.
“This is a family matter, and my son is not part of the campaign,” Mr. McCarthy said. “There is an ongoing investigation. If everyone could please respect our privacy, and we’re hoping for the continued recovery of everyone involved.”
According to police, the teenager was at a party Friday night at 34 Constitution Drive in Southboro, where he pushed the female host and was told to leave. The alleged stabbings occurred when Mr. McCarthy tried to re-enter.
