One of three men wanted in connection with a Wareham stabbing has turned himself, police said Wednesday morning.

Christian Fernandes, 30, of Wareham, was wanted for a stabbing incident which occurred on July 19. He turned himself into Wareham District Court on Tuesday, July 24. He is being held on $10,000 bail for the charges in Wareham and had his bail revoked for charges outstanding in Barnstable County.

Police are still searching for two others, Thomas Tavares, 28, and Andrew Booker, 29.

“If these two do not turn themselves in, it will only be a matter of time before they are captured,” said Acting Police Chief John Walcek.

The search started after Officer Nate Aronson responded to Tobey Hospital around noon on July 19 when a stabbing victim came in to the emergency room seeking treatment. Aronson arrived to find the man had been slashed across the face and beaten.

Wareham detectives took over the investigation and it was later determined that the attack occurred in the Oakdale area, near Frank’s Way, at about 11:30 a.m.

Police do not believe the attack was random and the victim is expected to survive.

Detectives have since secured arrest warrants for the following individuals with their respective charges:

Thomas Tavares, 28, of Wareham

  • Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon

Andrew Booker, 29, of East Wareham

  • Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of these individuals should contact the Wareham Police Department at 508-295-1212.

No surprise that they already had their pictures on file.


Despite all the success, they say that things need to get worse in order to get better...well, guess this qualifies as worse.  Keep up the great work WPD!  Find these three!  Why aren't they wanted for attempted murder?

Exactly right WBS, 3 perps...all with prior wrongdoing...sounds like attempted murder to me also. Obviously these three are too caught up in their lifestyle to smarten up and change. Lock em up!!!

With Hillary!!!!!

Wareham certainly is getting worse and worse. What has it got going for it? Crappy school system, crime run amuck, financial broke, bare bones services, property values plummeting but it a shopping plaza right off the highway so people can flock on it and give their money to giant corporations then get right back out while giving nothing to the town.

Wareham... The definition of a sh*t

Wareham has it's beautiful geography going for it.  Get a fishing license or a shellfish license.  Take a kid with you. Walk some of the trails.  Ride a bike. Watch the sunset. That's what I do to see the good.

Some of you act like this stuff only happens in Wareham, You're not helping the town at all with all that Wareham bashing. Not sure if you noticed but this is a great seller's market. Go to where the grass is greener.

Peace out

I have learned through life, that the grass is only greener around the septic tank. This is a great town, just a few bad apples. We have fresh water ponds and nice beaches, we have salt water with nice beaches, we still have large wooded areas that they haven't cut down to do a 40B or shopping center yet. We have to make our own grass as green as you can around yourself and not look for greener elsewhere.

You can make the grass green for your family only to have liberal judges and 40b developers drop a steamer In your front yard. Both bring flies, maggots and smelly shoes.

Wareham may look good on the outside but as the saying goes... You can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig.

Glad one of them did the right thing.  He knows where the other two are. The Judas Cradle, The Rack, or maybe just some basic Dunking should make him speak.


Look at the cupola on the police station.  They already have a Judas Cradle.  They just need a crane to hoist him up there and fasten him atop it.  Imagine the message that would send.

Editor, publish the last known address of record. Give their families or landlords some incentive to clean up. Other newspapers publish it.
