Tewksbury Police were called to the Motel 6 at 95 Main Street just before midnight, when a clerk working the front desk called 911 and told police a man had walked into the lobby with a stab wound to his chest.
Police say they arrived to find a knife and a guy named Kendrick Sanders, 58, of 82 Gorham St., Lowell, inside of room 107.
A short time later, police found the victim, a 49-year-old Lowell man whose name has not been released, walking on Wentworth Avenue in Lowell, about a mile from the motel.
Police say the victim was taken to a local hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
Sanders, who is pictured, was charged with attempted murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He is being held, and will be arraigned Monday in Lowell District Court.
State Police attached to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office are assisting the investigation.
