Police have arrested a suspect accused of stabbing a woman multiple times Saturday morning while in her vehicle in Pembroke, Massachusetts.
Mario Facchini, 49, is charged with assault with an attempt to murder and assault with a dangerous weapon. Pembroke Police say he is the victim's ex-boyfriend and he will appear in court Monday.
The 49-year-old victim told police she was stabbed multiple times near Stetson Pond in Pembroke at about 9:30 a.m. She then drove away to Hanson where she stopped at the intersection of South and Monponssett Streets and called the police. Officers believed the suspect to be a former boyfriend.
The woman, who has not been identified, was taken by medical helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital with serious injuries and she remains in critical condition.
"It's usually fine around here," one bewildered area resident told NBC Boston, "We never have problems around here."
The incident remains under investigation by police.
