Police Release Additional Photos in Connection with Fatal Stabbing

Boston Police have released additional photos of another individual they would like to speak to regarding the fatal stabbing of a Revere barbershop owner last month.

Alfred Rodriguez was stabbed during an altercation outside Modelo Bar on Chelsea Street in the early morning hours of Sunday, February 17.

Rodriguez, a father and owner of a barber shop in Revere, succumbed to his injuries at an area hospital three days after being stabbed in the chest.

The new photos are of a single Latino male both siting inside and walking around Modelo Bar. Police said they would like to speak with this individual.

“Boston Police are seeking the public’s help in an effort to ascertain the identity of the individual shown in the images in relation to the incident,” said police in a statement.

A night out for Rodriguez turned deadly on February 17 when police were called to Modelo Bar at 2 a.m. that morning. Police found Rodriguez suffering from a stab wound to the chest. He was rushed to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. He survived for nearly three days before passing away on Wednesday, February 20.

Police were originally searching for three people caught on security cameras that may have information on the attack.

Police said that the three individuals, one male and two females, are not considered suspects at this time but they would like help from the public in identifying the three people that were in the area at the time of the stabbing.

“These individuals are not wanted at this time,” Boston Police said in a statement. “This information is being provided for identification purposes only.”

Whether those individuals have been identified and may have led to police seeking this new individual is unknown at this time.
