A Chabad Shliach in Brighton, MA was stabbed multiple times, Thursday afternoon.
Sources tell YWN that Rabbi Shlomo Noginsky was stabbed just after 1:00PM outside his Chabad House, known as the “Shaloah House” on Chestnut Hill Avenue near Dighton Street.
Boston Police have a suspect in custody. A motive was not known.
Noginsky was rushed to a local hospital, but was being transferred to Boston Medical for major trauma.
His name for Tehillim is Shlomo ben Zlata Miriam.
According to a report, Noginski was sitting on the front steps of the Shaloh House on his cell phone. The suspect approached him, drew a gun and asked Noginski to take him to his car. When the suspect attempted to force Noginski into the car, the rabbi tried running across the street to a small park called Brighton Common, where the suspect stabbed Noginski multiple times in the arm. As the rabbi tried to fend off the attacker he raised a commotion, finally causing the suspect to flee. The suspect was apprehended by police almost immediately.
We are aware that a stabbing occurred outside of the Hasidic Center in Brighton and that one person has been taken into custody. An active @bostonpolice investigation into what happened including possible motivation is underway.https://t.co/a53Ma8xHdO
