CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - A Massachusetts man was stabbed by a Vermont man in a park at the intersection of Memorial Drive and JFK Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts Sunday night.

Massachusetts State Police say Nicolas Baker, 25, of Guildford, Vt., walked up to the 20-year-old victim, muttered something about "being robbed in Oregon," and stabbed him several times. The victim received non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Beth Israel Hospital.

The victim was with several friends at the park. The victim and his friends did not know Baker. Baker left the scene, but was later arrested.

Police say during the booking process Baker became enraged and with his uncuffed hand punched the booking room several times.

He is being charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and malicious destruction of property. During the booking process, police say, Baker had two outstanding warrants for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and the other for carrying a dangerous weapon.

Baker was arraigned Monday morning in Cambridge District Court.
