Concord man charged 
in downtown stabbing


CONCORD— A city man is charged with second-degree assault in the stabbing of another man during a large fight that began Tuesday night in Bicentennial Square, between Warren and Pleasant streets.

Christian E. Economides, 28, of Downing Street, was arrested Thursday after an investigation into the incident that left the 25-year-old victim with multiple stab wounds in his upper body.

Police said the victim was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries at Concord Hospital. He has been released.

Police said Economides was arrested Tuesday night on an unrelated drug charge.

Witnesses to the fight provided a description of a possible suspect and when an officer a short time later saw someone matching the description walking on Fayette Street, he sought to stop him.

But the person, later identified as Economides, ran from the officer, forcing a foot pursuit.

When Economides was caught on Chesley Street and taken into custody, he was searched and found to have a controlled substance in his pocket.

Because Economides did not have a prescription for the pill, he was charged with felony possession of controlled drugs.

He was also charged with resisting arrest or detention, a misdemeanor.

At the time of his initial arrest, police did not have enough evidence to charge Economides with the stabbing, so he was released on personal recognizance bail.

Additional investigation and evidence enabled police to obtain a warrant for Economides’ arrest and he was arrested Thursday at his residence.

He was held on $10,000 cash bail pending arraignment on the felony second-degree assault charge.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the stabbing, or the events surrounding it to call 225-8600, or to call Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
