New Hampshire man arrested in fatal restaurant stabbing

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was fatally stabbed at a restaurant in Worcester (WUH'-stur) and a suspect from New Hampshire is in police custody.

Worcester police say the 31-year-old victim, whose name wasn't released, was attacked Wednesday night at O'Connor's Restaurant. They say a restaurant patron from Connecticut who rushed to help the woman also was stabbed and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police arrested 28-year-old Carlos Asencio, of Derry, after others at the restaurant overpowered him and held him until officers arrived.

The Telegram & Gazette reports Asencio had previously dated the woman. He was expected to be arraigned Friday on charges of murder, armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and other offenses.
