The Falmouth man charged with stabbing a co-worker Monday of last week, September 27, was deemed a danger to the victim at a dangerousness hearing in Falmouth District Court last Friday.

Cory James Johnson, 30, of Esker Place was released on $4,000 bail, was placed on home confinement and must wear a GPS monitoring device. He was also ordered to stay away from the victim and the victim’s family.

He was arraigned September 28 on charges of assault to murder, assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery, according to Falmouth District Court reports.

Bourne police responded to Clover Paving at 584 MacArthur Boulevard just before 6 PM on September 27 for a report of a stabbing and found a man suffering from several wounds.

“Upon arrival, a 32-year-old male was located with multiple stab wounds to his back and right thigh,” Bourne police reported. “Initial responding officers, with the assistance of a civilian, rendered first aid...to slow the significant bleeding.”

The victim was flown to an area trauma hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he was in critical condition.

A preliminary investigation revealed that both men were employees of Clover Paving and that Mr. Johnson allegedly stabbed his co-worker following a physical altercation.
