    Two teenagers facing charges in connection with the stabbing of a livery driver Sunday in Chelsea, Massachusetts, faced a judge Monday.

    The boys, 15 and 17, were both charged with armed assault with intent to murder and assault and battery.

    The 15 year old from Chelsea was ordered to be held on $25,000 bail, and his bail in an open case out of Lawrence was revoked. Meanwhile, the 17 year old from Chelsea was ordered to be held on $10,000 bail.

    Police say officers responded to the area of 250 Congress Ave. at 6:40 p.m. where they found a 57-year-old East Boston man inside his vehicle suffering from an apparent slash wound to his neck.

    Witnesses were able to describe the suspects and police located the teens.

    The victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital to be treated and has since been released.

    Police are investigating the incident but believe the victim was a sub-contractor for livery company and was giving the two teens a ride when they allegedly stabbed him.

    The teens, who were not identified because of their ages, are due back in court on Sept. 22.

    Their attorneys are Craig Mulcahey and Patrick Colvario.
