Norton Road Rage Stabbing Suspect Ordered Held Without Bail

A Massachusetts man accused of stabbing a driver during a road rage confrontation was ordered held without bail at his arraignment on Friday.

Alfred Pond, 49, of Attleboro, was arrested Thursday after he allegedly stabbed a 25-year-old man in the chest following a road rage confrontation in Norton.

In Attleboro District Court, prosecutors said that Pond admitted to stabbing the other driver who frantically made a 911 call moments after the encounter.

"I've never been stabbed before, so I'm freaking out," the victim can be heard saying on the recording.

"I'm keeping my hand and shirt over it," answered the victim, who has not been named. "Every time I let go, there's a lot of blood coming out."

The dispatcher asked the victim, "Do you have something you can keep over the wound?"

"I'm keeping my hand and shirt over it," answered the victim, who has not been named. "Every time I let go, there's a lot of blood coming out."

The victim called for help at approximately 3:30 p.m. and reported that he was stabbed following the confrontation on Plain Street. According to the victim, the two men engaged in road rage in Easton.

At one point, the victim asked the dispatcher to do him one favor.

"Do you guys mind staying with me in case I die," he asked.

The victim was taken to Rhode Island Hospital where he underwent surgery. He is listed in stable condition.

Pond was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
