ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - A Brockton man has pleaded not guilty to stabbing an Attleboro teenager in a car on Halloween during what authorities called a “blunt ride.”

The Sun Chronicle (https://bit.ly/2gbBBVi ) reports that 26-year-old Justin Adams was held on $100,000 bail at his arraignment Wednesday on charges of assault with intent to murder, armed robbery and kidnapping.

Prosecutors say the teen arranged to buy marijuana on Oct. 31.

They say the 17-year-old victim wanted to test the product before buying it, and was stabbed in the arm while on a ride with Adams and two others. A blunt is a marijuana cigarette.

Prosecutors say the teen was robbed of a gold necklace, his cellphone and wallet containing $2,000 before he was stabbed.

Adams’ lawyer says he believes there’s more to the story.
