Boston Man Arraigned in Curry College Stabbing

By Currier Times Staff///

Jy’el Ancrum, 21, of Boston, was arraigned Thursday, December 8th in connection with the stabbing incident that left a Curry College student injured during an altercation in a campus residence hall Sunday morning. Ancrum pleaded not guilty in Quincy District Court, and a judge ordered Ancrum to stay away from the victim, stay away from the Curry campus, and to have no possession of dangerous weapons. His next court appearance is scheduled for February 23rd.

Milton Police arrested Ancrum on Wednesday afternoon, December 7th, in regard to the stabbing that occurred in the South Campus Residence Hall. Witnesses say a Curry football player was trying to break up a fight when he was stabbed in the left arm. He was sent to Milton Hospital where he was treated and released.

Ancrum was charged with two counts of assault and battery and one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to James O’Neil, Milton Deputy Chief.

“Detectives from the Milton Police Department along with members of the Boston Police Department, served an arrest warrant on Iowa Street in Boston,” said O’Neil. “This investigation would not have been so successful were it not for the assistance of the Curry College Public Safety Department.”

In an email statement to the Curry community on Wednesday night, December 7th, Public Safety Chief, Paul King, confirmed an arrest had been made.

According to the statement, it also confirmed the suspect was not a Curry student and a “no trespassing order” had been issued by the college.
