A man has been arrested and charged in connection to a stabbing.
According to Worcester police, they responded a reported stabbing in the area of 528 Pleasant Street in Worcester, Massachusetts at about 5:15 p.m. Friday.
When officers arrived on scene, they met firefighters from the Worcester Fire Department who said they were returning from a call when they saw two men fighting in the back parking lot of the Gulf gas station.

Witnesses at the scene were also able to positively identify Noboa, police said.
