Two Bridgewater brothers in critical condition after Wareham stabbing
18-year-old suspect in custody
WAREHAM - Just after 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning, Wareham police officers responded to the area of Priscilla Avenue for a reported double stabbing. Upon arrival, according to a Wareham police release, officers found two brothers, 18-year-old Brendon J. Mahoney and 19-year-old Brian P. Mahoney, both of Bridgewater. The brothers, both suffering from stab wounds, were lying in the dirt at the intersection of Priscilla Avenue and Hardy Street.
Both teens were transported to an area hospital, then transferred to a Rhode Island hospital where they remain in critical condition, police said.
An investigation conducted by Wareham police and State Police detectives assigned to the Plymouth District Attorney's Office led to the arrest of a lone suspect, 18-year-old Bryan Grassie of 16 Bartlett Lane in East Wareham. Grassie was arrested without incident at the home of a relative in Plymouth just before 9 a.m. Sunday, police said.
He was transported to the Wareham Police Station where he was processed and charged with two counts assault with intent to murder and two counts assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Grassie will be arraigned in Wareham 4th District Court Monday morning. Police have yet to release any other details about the double stabbing.
