EVERETT, Mass. (AP) - An Everett man is in custody following the stabbing of a high school football player hours after he scored the winning touchdown in a playoff game.

Police arrested 19-year-old Osmin Murcia Wednesday on charges including armed assault with intent to murder or maim in connection with the Nov. 1 attack on 16-year-old Marvens Fedna.

The Everett High School student was stabbed in the back and hand at around 12:30 a.m.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan says an argument among two groups escalated into a fight and Fedna was apparently stabbed when he intervened. The incident happened hours after Everett’s victory over St. John’s Prep.

At Wednesday’s arraignment in Malden District Court, a judge ordered Murcia held without bail pending a Dec. 4 hearing. It could not immediately be determined if Murcia has a lawyer.
