Northeastern Student from Medford Allegedly Attacks Two Women with Knife on Boston Streets

Patrick Barry, 21, pleaded not guilty this week to a number of related charges, including assault with intent to rape.

A 21-year-old Northeastern University student from Medford who allegedly attacked two women with a knife last Saturday in separate incidents in Boston’s Mission Hill neighborhood pleaded not guilty this week to a number of related charges, according to a Boston Herald report.

Patrick Barry pleaded not guilty Monday in Roxbury District Court to assault with intent to rape, armed robbery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He was then charged in the second attack and pleaded not guilty Wednesday in West Roxbury District Court to assault with intent to rape, according to the report.

According to the Herald, Barry has posted a combined $50,000 cash bail and is now free.

Barry allegedly attacked the first woman on a side street near Huntington Avenue and Vancouver Street in Boston at about 2 a.m. Saturday, June 15, according to a Boston Police Department release. He allegedly jumped out of some bushes, told the woman that he was going to rape her and began cutting off her clothes, the woman told authorities.

The second attack allegedly occurred less than an hour later in the same neighborhood, near Huntington and Park Hill avenues. Barry allegedly knocked the woman over in that attack.

The first woman suffered a stab wound to her leg, the second to her hand, according to police.

Barry was identified from surveillance photos. He told police he had been attacked by a person with a knife and defended himself with his own knife, according to the Herald.
