BOSTON — Boston Police say a 25-year-old man has died after he was stabbed near Roxbury’s Dudley Station Wednesday afternoon.

The man, who has not yet been identified by police, was stabbed after an apparent altercation on an MBTA bus.

“Words were exchanged on a bus, but the incident occurred after the parties had left the bus,” T spokesman Joe Pesaturo told The Boston Globe.

The victim was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he later died of his injuries.

No arrests have been made.

It’s the city’s 35th homicide of the year, and fifth in the last four days. Three 22-year-old women were fatally shot Sunday night in Dorchester, and early Sunday a 34-year-old man was fatally shot in Roslindale.

    Just sad, here was a  kid who loved life, he was wonderful loving friend also and didn’t look for trouble. Now he has had he life  taking from him behind who knows what? baskelball shoes? distortions of disrespect?It’s time everyone to look at what we value because Rashad valued basketball, his friends and living life having fun. I pray whoever committed this act has the courage to turn himself in to police, because it appears he need help with understanding what is of real value in our life. freedom, self respect.

    Moving to Boston, I thought would be different from New york. Hey, like they say things happens every where. I moved to Boston looking for a better life and I have two boys. I feel like getting bullet proof vests for me and my kids…I pray and I go to church I don’t feel safe anymore. But I do feel good about spot where I reside in Hyde park…it’s quiet I never have to worry about hearing sirens or drama. That’s the life and I love it. i’m a very low key person and I will protect my kids to the ground. I pray that God keep me, my family and friends under his wings and never let go. God walking out of our lives is what I worry about..I know he won’t let anything happened to me, my family or my friends. With God’s help I know that the devil won’t WIN!

      I just moved to Hyde Park as well. It seems pretty safe here. Having lived in Boston all of my life, I’ll tell you the biggest problem in some aread is lack of community involvement in tracking down criminals. Before we look to God for answers, we must do everything possible within our human capability to keep our neighborhoods safe. Don’t tolerate thugs, and God will do the rest.
