Red Sox-Yankees rivalry led to stabbing
NASHUA, N.H. (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – A father of five who was stabbed in October in a bar fight in what was originally thought to be over a Red-Sox Yankees rivalry is now talking exclusively to FOX25.
Monte Freire, of Nashua, and his son, told FOX25â€™s Ted Daniel that the accused attacker, John Mayor, made a Red Sox-Yankees comment earlier in the night, but it was not towards him.
Mayor, of New Haven, Conn., was arrested for allegedly stabbing Freire in the carotid artery with a six-inch knife.
The 45-year-old Mayor was charged with assault, breach of peace, possession of a controlled substance and other offenses. He was being held on $500,000 bond.
Police Capt. Geoffrey Morgan called the alleged attack in a dispute over the baseball rivalry a shame and said it’s unbelievable.
Freire has made a remarkable recovery. Doctors told his wife to kiss him goodbye because he wasn’t going to make it. He managed to pull through, but has life changing injuries.
