    (Published Wednesday, July 26, 2017)

    A Massachusetts teenager is being held on $50,000 cash bail in connection with a non-fatal double stabbing on Boston Common last week.

    Boston police say they arrested Victor Carrasquillo, 18, of Dorchester, on Gibson Street just after 6 a.m. Monday.

    Carrasquillo was arraigned in Boston Municipal Court on a charge of armed assault with intent to murder.

    Officers responded to the melee Wednesday after one of the victims, 30-year-old George Moustakis of Danvers, hit someone with a skateboard, and then was stabbed himself. Another man was also stabbed in the incident.

    Moustakis was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. His bail was set at $3,500.

    Three people who were initially arrested by police in the incident were involved in only the fight, but not the stabbing.

    Assistant District Attorney Anthony Rizzo also ordered Carrasquillo to be fitted with a GPS monitor and stay away from the victim, the Boston Common, and the Public Garden in the event he is released on bail.

    Carrasquillo returns to court Aug. 23.
