Bridgewater: Florida Man Arrested in Stabbing at Bridgewater Home

Bridgewater Police say a 27-year-old Florida man who was staying at a home in Bridgewater stabbed a couple who live there.

Authorities say the stabbing happened early Monday at a home on Yoke rd. 

Police say he called the woman into the hallway after she woke up to go to work and began stabbing her. Police say he then stabbed her husband when he tried to intervene.

Bridgewater Police Capt. Thomas Schlatz:



The victims, a 46-year-old woman and her 50-year-old husband, were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Police say the woman was later transported to a Boston hospital.


Schlatz says the suspect, 27-year-old Andrew Soto-Bonnett, of Leesburg, Florida, was arrested without incident and charged with two counts of Attempted Murder; Two Counts of Aggravated Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon; and Mayhem.


A preliminary investigation has determined that Soto-Bonnett was staying at the home of the victims after flying into Providence last night from Florida. Soto-Bonnet has been taken to the hospital for evaluation.
