BOSTON (AP) - A woman pushing a baby in a stroller has been stabbed multiple times and police have charged a teenager with the attack.
    
Police say the woman was stabbed several times at about 4 p.m. Monday while walking down a street in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood.
    
She collapsed outside an ice cream shop where customers rushed to help her.
    
Shop owner Joe Conway says the victim appeared to have stab wounds to her chest, back and leg. The baby, about a year old, was unhurt.
    
Police say the victim's injuries are not life-threatening. Her name was not released. Police say Samia Jones is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on a charge of intent to murder.
    
Police did not say what prompted that attack.
