Lynn man arrested in connection to Boston Public Garden stabbing

Boston Police arrested a Lynn man in connection to a New Year’s Eve stabbing in the Public Garden.

Joshua Enos, 27, of Lynn, was arrested on Thursday and charged with armed robbery, armed kidnapping with serious bodily injury and assault by means of a dangerous weapon, according to a statement by Boston Police. A judge in Boston Municipal Court ordered Enos held on $25,000 bail.

Police believe Enos is one of several people involved in the stabbing, which took place at about two hours before the new year. A caller reported an armed robbery in progress at the Public Garden. When officers arrived, they found the victims, who said three men walked up to them inside the park, demanded their wallets, and stabbed one of the victims.

After giving the suspects their belongings, one of the victims was forcibly taken to an ATM and made to withdraw a large amount of money, according to police.  The stabbing victim was taken to a hospital for treatment, and is expected to survive.

Enos was captured in Lynn by the Boston Police Fugitive Unit. His next court date is Feb. 18.
