Union Square Holiday Market ruffiansScott Lynch Union Square last month.

Thought the imminent closing of Filene’s Basement would be the biggest news coming out of Union Square today? Not so much. A 36-year-old man was stabbed in the leg in Union Square earlier this afternoon, the police said.

The victim, who was not identified, is said to have been stabbed around 3 p.m. at Union Square and East 15th Street by an unknown Hispanic man who fled the scene. A representative of the police department did not know whether the man had been taken to the hospital, but said he was not considered likely to die.

The author of the blog Sana and the City tweets a rumor, which The Local has not been able to confirm, that the victim was homeless.
