PEMBROKE (CBS) – The former boyfriend of a woman stabbed in Pembroke is now charged with assault with intent to murder.
Mario Facchini, 49, is being held on $250,000 bail following his arrest Saturday in Plymouth, hours after the stabbing occurred at Plymouth Street beach in Pembroke.
The 49-year-old victim, who suffered multiple stab wounds to her chest while inside her vehicle, then drove herself to South Street in Hanson. She was later airlifted to a Boston hospital with serious injuries. She was in critical condition following surgery on Saturday, police said.
Neighbors described the area in Pembroke where the stabbing occurred as recreational and quiet–a place where people go to fish and spend time outdoors.
Police arrested Facchini after an intense, day-long manhunt. Officers from Hanson, Halifax, Bourne, Mashpee, Wareham and Plymouth assisted in the search.
Facchini, who is also charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, is scheduled to be arraigned in Plymouth District Court on Monday.
Police said Facchini has no known address and has been staying at motels.
