Three arrests have been made in connection with an early morning on July 4th stabbing in the Brant Rock section of Marshfield.

Marshfield Police Captain Phil Tavares says the three suspects are identified as 24-year-old Jarod McCormack of Marshfield, 23-year-old Thomas Cradock, of Dorchester, and former Marshfield resident, 25-year-old Stephanie m. Neas, now of Holbrook.

Tavares says the incident took place around 1:30 a.m. on July 4th by the laundromat on the esplanade.

“A 20-year-old male was vacationing here in Marshfield with his family–he was out at that hour, around the Brant Rock section of Marshfield, when he was attacked by both, we believe, Jarod McCormack and Thomas Cradock. He was stabbed more than once resulting in serious internal injury,” said Tavares.

Tavares says the two men allegedly attacked the victim, and Neas drove the get-away car.

Tavares says the victim is still in the hospital with a broken jaw and severe internal injuries, and faces additional surgery and expected to remained hospitalized for an extended period of time.

The three defendants all face charges of attempted murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and aggravated assault and battery.
