BOSTON (CBS) – A Falmouth man is facing a variety of charges after a string of incidents that included him allegedly shooting a bow and arrow at another man Thursday night.

It began around 9 p.m. when officers were called to Wal-Mart, where they found a 29-year-old man with head injuries.

Police said that Robert Green, 35, of Falmouth, allegedly punched the man, knocking him out. Officers believe Green then stomped on the man’s head and then took off.

At about 10:55 p.m. police were then called to the Windfall Market parking lot, where two women who police said had been with Green earlier in the night were reportedly involved in a fight. As a result, an East Falmouth resident was stabbed numerous times in the back, according to police.

The 30-year-old woman was transported to a Boston-area hospital by ambulance.  Investigators are still looking for the 24-year-old Falmouth woman they believe was involved in the incident.

Just over an hour later at 12:34 a.m., police went to Homestead Lane, where a fight was reported. According to officers, Green shot a bow and arrow at a 35-year-old East Falmouth man, narrowly missing him.

Though Green left the scene, one hour later officers were called back to the Homestead Lane address. Police said Green had come back and was smashing the windows of the property and assaulted a 39-year-old Falmouth resident.

A captain from the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office arrested Green.

He is charged with assault to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, armed robbery, malicious destruction of property, and larceny.

Falmouth police said none of the crimes were random, and drugs and alcohol appeared to play a role in the incidents.
