Arrest made in Lowell knife attack

Five detectives just went to 16 Chase Street in Back Central and arrested the man pictured below in a gray shirt for armed assault with intent to murder in connection with a nearly-fatal assault on a 28-year-old man Saturday night.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, remains at an undisclosed Boston trauma center, and police are still not ready to say that they expect him to survive. At last update, the victim is still in critical condition.

Police have not identified the victim or said where he is from.

Erich G. Sorenson, 34, who lives at 16 Chase St., according to police, is charged with armed assault with intent to murder. He was being held tonight pending arraignment on Tuesday in Lowell District Court. That’s Sorenson in the gray T-shirt.

Sorenson got a kiss from the girl next to him in the picture before he was led into the wagon.

Sorenson is a registered level 3 sex offender, and he was arrested as recently as last month, when he was picked up on a warrant charging assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, among other charges, according to our arrest logs.

It looks like he was also arrested last year and accused of robbing an Aiken Avenue convenience store at gunpoint.

Other arrest log entries I found under his name are for charges like assault and battery on a police officer, unarmed robbery, and misdemeanors like trespassing and assault and battery.
