Massachusetts State Troopers this afternoon located and apprehended the suspect wanted for stabbing another man during a road rage incident in West Roxbury last Saturday.

An MSP investigation in the hours and days after the stabbing identity the assailant as DREW D. LAMB, 27, of Medford.

The State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section began assisting detectives from State Police Troop H and the State Police Detective Unit for Suffolk County in tracking down LAMB.

This afternoon, MSP VFAS located the Cadillac LAMB was driving at the time of the incident. A Trooper observed the car parked outside the Porter Street, Salem residence of a known associate of LAMB’s. VFAS Troopers, along with State Police and Salem Police detectives, converged on the location and took LAMB into custody without incident. Troopers transported LAMB to the State Police-Danvers Barracks, where he was booked on the warrant. The Cadillac was towed to a State Police facility for processing.

On the afternoon of Saturday, August 7, Troopers from the State Police-Milton Barracks, along with BPD officers, responded to the road rage incident on the VFW Parkway in West Roxbury.  Upon arrival, they located a 42-year-old man suffering from a stab wound to the chest. The man  was transported to a hospital with a non-life threatening injury. MSP Detectives responded to the scene; the ensuing investigation resulted in the identification of LAMB as the perpetrator.

Their investigation determined that the victim and a family member were driving in a Toyota Tacoma pickup on the VFW Parkway on Saturday afternoon. Simultaneously, LAMB was driving a black 2010 Cadillac CTS on the Parkway. The operators began passing and exchanging words with each other. Prior to the Centre Street intersection, both vehicles pulled over. Evidence indicates that LAMB exited his vehicle with a knife and approached the Tacoma. The victim then exited his pickup and the two began fighting. During the fight LAMB stabbed the victim in the chest, according to the evidence. LAMB then re-entered the Cadillac and fled the scene.

LAMB will be held overnight and will be arraigned tomorrow in the West Roxbury Division of the Boston Municipal Court.
