State Troopers and Everett Police Officers arrested a Natick man overnight Thursday shortly after he allegedly stabbed another man during an altercation inside Encore Boston Harbor.
Troopers and Officers apprehended David Guante, 30, of Natick, at a parking lot across the street from the casino, to where he had fled after the incident. A small knife was recovered. The suspect was booked at the Everett Police Department for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
The victim, a 24-year-old Lynn man, who was located in the casino’s lobby after the incident, was conscious and alert and was able to provide responding Troopers a description of his assailant. The victim sustained a puncture wound believed to be minor and was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital.
