Police were searching early yesterday for a man who stabbed a pediatric nurse at Boston Medical Center after she surprised the suspect in an employee break room.
The nurse, whom police did not identify and described only as being in her late 40s, was treated at the hospital and released yesterday, said a police spokeswoman, Neva Grice. The attack, which occurred shortly before 11 a.m., put hospital workers on edge.
Police said they were looking for a black male, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a heavy build, who wore a red and white ''designer" jacket. Police did not know what the man was doing in the break room; they said he was not a hospital employee.
The attack was random, according to police officials, who said they interviewed the nurse briefly before she was sent to the operating room.
