WOONSOCKET â€“ In a day of fast-moving developments, the manhunt for a career criminal who allegedly stabbed his girlfriend to death the night before ended in Boston Wednesday with the arrest of 31-year-old Alvin Huggins, police said.
Huggins allegedly stabbed 28-year-old Yanira M. Flores in their apartment at 122 Willow St. Tuesday night. He allegedly fled the scene and police had been searching for him since, calling him â€śarmed and dangerous.â€ť
She said â€śNoâ€ť to me and slammed the door. She was on my paper route.
I asked out every girl on my paper route. All three of them. I liked having a captive audience. Iâ€™d hand them the paper and say, â€śWant to go to a movie?â€ť
They all said â€śNo.â€ť
Well, one girl said, â€śYesâ€ť but then the next day her brother told me she really meant â€śNo.â€ť
I made about $2 an hour on my paper route. It took me about four hours a day and then another five or six hours on the weekends collecting money.
One time, delivering papers, a guy drove by and yelled, â€śone day youâ€™re going to rule the world!â€ť
BURRILLVILLE – Once the final horn sounded Wednesday afternoon, members of the Burrillville/North Smithfield Co-op squad sprinted toward the cage manned by senior goalkeeper Mark Pasquariello, pounced on top of him and began chanting, “We’re going to the ‘ship! We’re going to the ‘ship!”
They referred to the fact that the Broncos qualified for the R.I. Division III Tournament championship game at Brown University’s Stevenson Field at 1 p.m., Sunday.
WOONSOCKET â€“ The cityâ€™s first homicide investigation of the year is under way after a 28-year-old woman was stabbed at 122 Willow St. Tuesday night and later died at Landmark Medical Center.
Police said they were summoned to the two-family house at 10:17 p.m. for a report of a medical emergency and found the victim with a stab wound to the chest.
Detective Sgt. Matt Ryan said no one was in custody as of press time Wednesday, but he declined to say whether police had identified a suspect or elaborate on other details of the crime.
FRANKLIN – Cumberland High suffered no letdown after a key Division I-North triumph over rival Tolman on Monday night.
Twenty-four hours later, the Clippers reeled in non-league foe Franklin, 4-2, on Tuesday to assemble important, back-to-back wins.
Against Franklin, sophomore righty Sydney Provencal allowed just two hits and a walk while fanning four in a five-inning stint, while sophomores Sam Jalbert, Maddi Leite, Provencal and Emily Anderson all produced a hit and an RBI.
WOONSOCKET – Over the past week, Lincoln High sustained two defeats in its last three contests after opening its Division I-A campaign at 12-1.
Those were rather tight affairs against La Salle and Hendricken, and some may have wondered, “Are the wheels coming off?”
PAWTUCKET – George Patrick Duffy left this world on Saturday night, clutching a baseball in one hand while feeling the love of family caressing his faltering heart.
PAWTUCKET – Playing their first home game since the passing of Jim Skeffington, the Pawtucket Red Sox held a brief but poignant tribute for their late team president prior to Monday’s game against Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre.
WOONSOCKET – The primary mission of the George Nasuti Novans Pride 5K is to raise money for the Woonsocket athletic department.

WOONSOCKET â€“ When he was a little younger, Richard Fazzio, now 90, would tend to the small veteransâ€™ memorial at Market Square and Arnold Street whenever he passed by on a walk.
Fazzio grew up in the Globe District on Lincoln Street, and the plaque honoring the city men killed in World War II from that neighborhood bears the names of people he knew.
Among the nine honored are the first city resident killed during World War II, Arthur Favreau, and also Fazzioâ€™s brother, Frank Fazzio, who was just 23 when he was killed fighting for the Army on Leyte in the Philippines on Dec. 2, 1944.
