Troopers investigate highway incident on Routes 24/495 in Bridgewater
(Editor’s Note: the following story is based on a press release issued this week by the Massachusetts State Police.)
Massachusetts State Police troopers arrested a 36-year-old East Falmouth woman Saturday (Dec. 8) after an investigation indicated that she physically assaulted another person, a 32-year-old female from Saugus, with a knife.
At about 1:30 p.m., troopers from the State Police-Middleboro Barracks responded to cellular 911 reports of an assault on the ramp of Route 24 North to Route 495 Northbound in Bridgewater. According to witnesses, the vehicle, a 2019 Jeep Cherokee, stopped on the ramp and both women exited the vehicle. The East Falmouth woman got back into the vehicle and fled, reportedly leaving the victim on the side of the road with stab wounds to her leg. The victim was transported by Bridgewater EMS to Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment of her injuries.
A Be on the Look Out (BOLO) alert for the suspect vehicle was broadcast to area patrols. A short time later, a suspect was located and arrested at the Red Fox Inn on Route 1 in Foxborough.
The suspect was transported to the State Police-Middleboro Barracks, where she was booked. At this time, the suspect is charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Assault and Battery on a Family or Household Member, 2nd Offense. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be forthcoming.
The suspect is not being identified per a state law that prohibits the release of names of domestic violence suspects. No further information is being released at this time.
