Two construction workers were seriously injured Monday when they were stabbed by a co-worker before another co-worker at a Cambridge job site stopped the attack.

Carcensky Salvant, 21, of Randolph, allegedly stabbed a male co-worker at the Wheeler Street construction site over an alleged debt that was owed to Salvant by the victim.

The man was stabbed in the leg by Salvant while the victim was on a ladder, officials said.

Another man who tried to stop the attack was stabbed in his back.

A third co-worker, identified only as Lito M., was able to successfully disarm a folding knife from Salvant and restrain him until officers arrived and placed him in handcuffs. He said his training in Jiu-Jitsu helped him take control of the situation.

“My arms were going numb. I was starting to go numb a little bit, but I just kept switching back and forth from being taught. It was tough,” the worker said. “When I had him on the ground, he kept saying, ‘He owes me.’ That’s it. We don’t know what he owes him for. The kid that he stabbed is a young kid. He’s not like that person. He is a good kid and a hard worker.”

All of the men involved in the incident work for Shawnlee Construciton – a subcontractor on the job site.

“I had to do it. My co-worker was getting stabbed,” Lito said.

Both victims suffered serious injuries. They are not expected to be life-threatening.

A knife was recovered by officers and taken into evidence, officials said.

Salvant was charged with two counts of armed assault to murder, two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery to collect a loan.
