Man arrested for allegedly damaging patriotic crosswalk


PLYMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — Police are investigating two violent incidents that send six people to the hospital over the weekend.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office said 26-year-old Jared Ravizza of Chilmark, Mass., was arrested Saturday after he allegedly stabbed two employees at the McDonald’s at the Route 3 South service plaza in Plymouth.

According to Massachusetts State Police, surveillance video appears to show the suspect reach into the drive-thru window and stab a 29-year-old man with a large knife. Ravizza then allegedly parked his vehicle, went inside and stabbed a second worker, a 21-year-old woman.

Both were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Ravizza took off, but police chased him down and arrested him after he crashed in Sandwich.

Police said the incident was likely connected to an earlier stabbing in Braintree. The suspect went into the AMC movie theater around 6 p.m. and walked past the ticket counter without paying, then entered a theater and attacked four girls between the ages of 9 and 17.

Their injuries were not life-threatening, according to police.

Ravizza is expected to be arraigned in court Tuesday on charges including assault with intent to murder and two counts of battery with a dangerous weapon.
