Boston Man Facing Assault Charges After 3 Children Stabbed

Police say a 51-year-old Boston man is facing charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after three children were stabbed on Saturday.

Rock Aurelien, who police say is known to the children, is expected to be arraigned Monday in what police say is a domestic attack. Police said the children, ages 9, 12, and 15, have non-life-threatening wounds.

Neighbors said the bleeding children, two younger boys and an older girl, ran down a street seeking help at around 1 p.m.

Lizanna Guzman said the boys ran to her porch, later followed by the girl. She said the older boy screamed, "He's going to kill me!" Guzman said she called 911 but the terrified children kept running.

Other witnesses said they then stopped at a corner store where an ambulance was called for them.
