A Boston man faced a judge Wednesday after being charged in a stabbing that nearly left a man dead this weekend.
Davongie Stone, 20, a resident of the South End, was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault with intent to murder and armed robbery. He is accused of stabbing a 21-year-old man in the Downtown Crossing area, near the intersection of Washington Street and Winter Street.
Responders arrived around 12:40 a.m. Sunday to find the man with life-threatening stab wounds to his chest. The victim was taken to Tufts Medical Center.
Surveillance footage in the area showed the attack, and a camera at the Downtown Crossing MBTA station showed the attacker fleeing. According to the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, Stone's bloody handprint was found at the station and investigators were able to identify him.
Stone is being held on $500,000 bail, and his bail on an open Roxbury shoplifting case was revoked. He will be transported to face charges for violent crimes in Middlesex County.
The suspect is due back in court Sept. 25.
