Nov 24, 2017

A 49-year-old Wareham man has been charged with armed assault with intent to murder after allegedly stabbing a woman multiple times in Pembroke on Nov. 4. Mario Facchini of 3026 Cranberry Highway is being held without bail and has a probable cause hearing scheduled for Dec. 14 in Plymouth District Court.

Facchini also faces a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon from the incident, which involved police from several towns.

According to published reports, police said that Facchini stabbed the victim in the chest at Stetson Pond Beach in Pembroke shortly before 9:30 a.m. after an argument. She then drove a short distance to Hanson and called 911.

A Halifax police officer arrived at the scene first, followed by a Hanson officer. Paramedics were called and the victim was taken by helicopter to Massachusetts Hospital in Boston in critical condition.

Before being transported, the victim provided police with Facchini’s address. A Pembroke police officer went to that address and found a truck belonging to the victim that Facchini reportedly drove after the incident. It was then towed to the Pembroke Police Station.

Police said some of the victim’s family members were interviewed and learned that the two had been in a relationship, but broke up a few months ago. The family members also said Facchini had a bad temper, according to police.

Facchini turned himself in to Plymouth Police without incident after an arrest warrant had been issued.
