Mashpee Police Chief Rodney C. Collins confirmed this afternoon that an arrest has been made in connection to this morning's stabbing at a home at 44 Shorewood Drive.
Aquinnah O. Lopes-Pocknett, 20, of Mashpee, was arrested without incident following a traffic stop. He has been charged with assault and intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and domestic assault and battery for allegedly stabbing David Figueroa twice during an argument.
Mr. Figueroa was transported to South Shore Hospital in South Weymouth where he is reported to be in stable condition.
