Double Stabbing In North Adams Under Investigation
An altercation that took place between three North Adams men on Saturday night has one facing assault charges for an alleged double stabbing.
Bobby Bushey, 58, is accused of stabbing Fred Reynolds, 50, and his nephew, Kori Smith, 21 causing serious injuries.
According to a story reported on by the Berkshire Eagle, North Adams Police arrived at 55/57 Hall St just after 10 p.m. and found a blood trail leading into Reynolds’ apartment. Bushey and Reynolds reside in separate units in the building.
According to reports, Reynolds had been “disemboweled,” with puncture wounds on the sides of his abdomen, and Smith suffered multiple puncture wounds to his chest.
Both men were taken to BMC in Pittsfield where, after undergoing emergency surgery, they are now listed in stable condition.
According to the Berkshire Eagle, North Adams police said "the disagreement stemmed from a previous incident that was not resolved". Bushey, who suffered minor injuries, told police that he and Reynolds had gotten into a fight about two weeks ago.
Smith said he and Reynolds entered Bushey's apartment on Saturday night to apologize for the previous incident, yet Bushey said the two men jumped him and that he acted in self-defense.
Bushey pleaded not guilty in Northern Berkshire District Court to two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
