Dartmouth Police: Pawtucket Man Stabs Two, Crashes During Escape
DARTMOUTH — A Pawtucket man faces multiple charges in connection to a stabbing incident in Dartmouth Thursday night.
Dartmouth Police responded to 450 State Road at 7:13 p.m. on Thursday after receiving reports of a stabbing at the Dunkin' Donuts/AT&T plaza. At the scene, police found two male victims suffering from stab wounds.
One of the victims was transported to St. Anne's Hospital in Fall River with minor injuries. The second victim suffered serious injuries and was transported to Rhode Island Hospital. His injuries, while considered serious, are not life-threatening. Both victims received initial treatment at the scene before they were transported.
During the investigation, Dartmouth Police received a description of a vehicle in which another man involved in the stabbing had fled. While responding to the incident, Patrolman Shawn Souza observed the vehicle, a 2013 Mercedes, driving on State Road near Reed Road.
As Officer Souza attempted to stop the Mercedes, the suspect vehicle accelerated at a high rate of speed. While attempting to negotiate a turn onto Deerfield Road, the driver of the suspect vehicle lost control and crashed. The driver then fled the vehicle on foot.
A search of the area located the suspect, Sadaryl Parham, 24, of 255 Main Street, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, in a swampy area near the crash.
Parham was placed under arrest and transported to St. Luke's Hospital to receive treatment for a laceration to his hand.
Dartmouth Police have charged Parham with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (two counts), assault to murder, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, failure to stop for police, negligent operation, marked lanes violation, and speeding.
The incident remains under investigation by Dartmouth Police.
