    Police have arrested a teenager wanted in connection with an armed robbery and stabbing in Raynham, Massachusetts.

    Eddy Fonseca, 18, of New Bedford, is accused of armed robbery and assault to murder after an attack early Sunday morning.

    A couple hours later, at 1:10 a.m., police returned and found a man had been stabbed in the neck.

    Authorities say a man, later identified as Fonseca, was allegedly trying to rob a juvenile when another man stepped in to try and stop him.
