An eighteen-year old New Hampshire man is in serious condition after a stabbing in Derry Saturday evening.
Police arrested Kameron Simoneau, 20, of Derry in the aftermath and charged him with first degree assault.
Police first received reports of a disturbance in a parking lot at 15 Fairway Drive at 7:32 p.m.. Upon arrival, officers found the victim, Christian Dowe-Scimone, 18, of Derry, suffering from multiple apparent stab wounds. He was taken by the Derry Fire Department ambulance to Parkland Medical Center and later flown to a Boston hospital for treatment.
Police said in a statement that they determined the stabbing stemmed from a fight. Witnesses provided a possible suspect name and a description of the vehicle that the suspect used to flee the scene. Officers located a parked vehicle matching the description and, upon further investigation, arrested a resident of the home.
Simoneau is currently in custody at the Derry Police Department pending further investigation.
