Man Due in Court for Allegedly Stabbing Teen in Rehoboth, Mass.

Officials responded to a call for a medical emergency in which the caller claimed a man "may have fallen onto glass"

A man was arrested for the stabbing of a 19-year-old man who was reported to have "fallen onto some glass" Sunday in Rehoboth, Massachusetts.

Shortly after 1 a.m., authorities responded to a call of a medical emergency at 120 Purchase St., according to Rehoboth police. The caller told police the victim "may have fallen onto glass."

When officials arrived at the scene, they found a 19-year-old man bleeding heavily with stab wounds to his chest and abdomen. The victim was taken to Rhode Island Hospital, where he is in critical condition.

State and local police worked with the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office on the investigation. As the investigation developed, officials identified Jared Canto, 19, of Middleborough, Massachusetts as a suspect and issued an arrest warrant.

Canto was arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

He was held overnight on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Monday at Taunton District Court. It is unclear if Canto has a lawyer.
