Police: Man accused of stabbing another man during road rage confrontation
A 49-year-old Attleboro man has been accused of stabbing another man during a road rage incident in Massachusetts Thursday afternoon, according to authorities.
The Norton Police Department said Alfred Pond was arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Authorities said they responded to a scene on Plain Street in Norton around 3:30 p.m. When they arrived, they found a man bleeding from the chest.
“The victim stated to police that he and another male were involved in a road rage incident that began in Easton and went into Norton,” police noted in a press release. “He told police that while in Norton, they both stopped their vehicles and the suspect stabbed him in the chest before fleeing the area.”
Pold was later found at his home on Maple Street in Attleboro, where he was placed in custody.
“The knife used during the incident was found in a wooded area along the side of the road on Pine Street in Norton, which is approximately a half mile from where the stabbing took place,” police said.
The man who was injured was taken to Rhode Island Hospital. In a tweet, Norton Police Chief Brian Clark noted that he is in serious condition but is expected to survive.
Police later told NBC 10 News he underwent surgery and is stable.
Meanwhile, Pond is scheduled to appear in court Friday morning.
