Anna’s Taqueria employee stabbed outside Student Center

An employee of Anna’s Taqueria stabbed a coworker non-fatally right above the navel at 4:25 p.m. on Wednesday outside W20 (Stratton Student Center).

Police are seeking a suspect described as an Hispanic male, age 20-30, 5’8’’ to 5’9’’ wearing a red and black baseball cap with the letter C and wearing light blue jeans, the MIT News Office said.

Torance Harrison, an employee at Sharon’s Hair Salon in the basement of the Student Center, was on the phone when he heard the first employee say “I’m gonna stab you.”

Harrison said that the coworker took off his belt to defend himself, and the employee followed suit. The victim had lacerations on his face from the belt.

Harrison also said that the stab victim did not speak English and said that the assailant was his cousin.

Neither the victim nor the suspect are believed to be students.

In response, the MBTA stopped both inbound and outbound trains from the Kendall T Station.
