WAREHAM – A 21-year-old Plymouth woman was arrested for attempted murder in connection with a 25-year-old Bourne woman’s stabbing Friday morning in Wareham. The victim was not identified.
Related altercations at Tobey Hospital where the victim was being treated led to two additional arrests.
Police said they were called to the Tobey Hospital emergency room at approximately 5 a.m. Friday on reports of a stabbing victim being treated.
Police said they learned the 25-year-old victim from Bourne, who is not being identified at this time, had been stabbed during an altercation with 21-year-old Karis Callanan of Plymouth. The victim suffered stab wounds to her back, arm and face that were said to be non-life-threatening at this time.
The victim was brought to Tobey by friends who were present during the incident, police said. Callanan was brought to the hospital in the same vehicle, though she was uninjured, police said, and was in the parking lot. Police said the victim was “well known to her.” Police said the knife used during the assault was recovered in the vehicle used to transport the victim to the hospital.
As a result of the incident’s preliminary investigation, Callanan was arrested, and charged with attempted murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (knife), and assault to murder, police said.
While investigating the incident at Tobey Hospital, officers placed two subjects under arrest who had arrived and caused a disturbance related to the reported stabbing incident, police said.
Marie Ditalia, 51, of Buzzards Bay, was arrested after physically assaulting a man in the presence of officers in the hospital parking lot. She was charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct.
As her arrest was taking place, 52-year-old John Ditalia of Buzzards Bay, charged at officers and committed an assault before being brought under control and arrested, police said. As a result of his actions, John Ditalia was charged with assault and battery on a police officer, disturbing the peace, and disorderly conduct, police said.
The stabbing incident’s investigation is ongoing, police said. The arrested parties were to be arraigned at the Wareham District Court Friday.
