Wareham man charged with attempted murder has hearing set for Dec. 14

Nov 24, 2017

A 49-year-old Wareham man has been charged with armed assault with intent to murder after allegedly stabbing a woman multiple times in Pembroke on Nov. 4. Mario Facchini of 3026 Cranberry Highway is being held without bail and has a probable cause hearing scheduled for Dec. 14 in Plymouth District Court.

Facchini also faces a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon from the incident, which involved police from several towns.

According to published reports, police said that Facchini stabbed the victim in the chest at Stetson Pond Beach in Pembroke shortly before 9:30 a.m. after an argument. She then drove a short distance to Hanson and called 911.

A Halifax police officer arrived at the scene first, followed by a Hanson officer. Paramedics were called and the victim was taken by helicopter to Massachusetts Hospital in Boston in critical condition.

Before being transported, the victim provided police with Facchini’s address. A Pembroke police officer went to that address and found a truck belonging to the victim that Facchini reportedly drove after the incident. It was then towed to the Pembroke Police Station.

Police said some of the victim’s family members were interviewed and learned that the two had been in a relationship, but broke up a few months ago. The family members also said Facchini had a bad temper, according to police.

Facchini turned himself in to Plymouth Police without incident after an arrest warrant had been issued.

Thank God they caught this...

Wait, he turned himself in so technically they didn't catch him. Nevermind.

If we could only vote to have the motels,hotels and trailer parks account towards the states 40b code,we would be well over the limit !!!!!!!!

No kidding, this violent criminal was living there...no surprise.  Not everybody that lives in a motel or a trailer is bad.  I do understand that. So no underwear in a knot for this please.


That stretch between McDonalds and Family Pet contains quite the run- down sketchy group of trailers and a motel.  Ironic part is that our biggest attractions provided a birds eye view of it for all to experience. Thousands and thousands of people from all around visit Water Wizz each summer. Millions over the years.  From a platform 60 feet in the air, one can look out and see it all.  Many are children.  Many are adults. Many have never been to Wareham before.  Ask them about their trip to Wareham.  Typical response goes like this “really cool water park but a lot of crappy trailers”.

I should've worded it different,I'm not saying that everybody is bad,I have a grandmother that lives in one in town.in saying that they should still be accounted for when figuring out if we meet the states needs for 40b.

I wasn't directing that at you Lifer.  It was a prelude to my comment.  It's the bad apples that ruin it.  Some of the trailer parks are beautiful in Wareham.

Why haven’t the trailer parks etc been voted as 40 B ? Does someone need to make a motion? Has it been presented and voted down? I’m new to Wareham and would be willing to take action around making this happen if possible.

Check the SORB registry and see where the Level 2 and 3 offenders live: with a bird's eye view of kids in bathing suits.

Cranberry Bog, it is perpetually stuck in committee on Beacon Hill.  See the extensive discussion re: Woodland Cove.

East Wareham is a dump - Until I moved to Wareham, that area near Water Wizz is pretty much how I identified the town. I never gave it a second chance and now I love the town. The beaches, Onset!, the people - even the center of town. There is nothing bad about this town outside of that stretch of Rt 28.

WBTS, you are 100% correct my friend that visit Water Wizz say the same thing . Then go on to say why in world do you come down here . " You might as well vacation in Lynn"

BARON1701 - There are 3603 residents living in East Wareham according to U.S. Postal statistics by Zip Code (02538). Starting off a comment with "East Wareham is a dump" has a potential of insulting or hurting a lot of people, especially if having felt hurt or insulted they turn away from the comment without reading further. By the way the total land mass of East Wareham is 4.55 square miles.  How much of that square mileage do you think  is taken up by "that stretch of RT. 28?"

My friends that visit Water Wizz usually comment what a great time they had, what a "b" of a sunburn they got, how  fantastic the clam cakes were at Lindsey's, how big the lobstah roll was at Kool Kone or what a beautiful bay Onset has. I have never had anyone comment about the number trailersin town or any negative canotations about East Wareham except for the traffic..

ANDREA SMITH - I agree that my first sentence would seem rough. I meant nothing personal to anyone - its not even the people along that area that I meant anything about. The area was poorly planned. It looks bad to have so many trailer parks and hotels right there. I was trying to make a point about that small stretch of town and how people tend to judge this fine town by a small area. Wareham is awesome, a hidden jewel.

Archangel, most of your comment is fine and true.  I agree, Water Wizz is a blast, Lindsay's & Kool Kone are great restaurants, and Onset is beautiful.  However, you've never heard anyone comment about the trailer parks?  Really? There's like 50 of them! Everybody knows that Wareham is the trailer park capitol of the area!


Half are in-fact very nice and for seniors.  Some are ok.  A few are awful like what can be seen across from Water Wizz! Why the nastiest one is out in plain view is beyond me!


The town needs to make them barricade that eyesore with a big tall fence if they can't make them fix it up! There has got to be town regulations on aesthetics.  There's about 100 rusty ramshackled trailers sitting on asphalt and dirt, surrounded by parked vehicles, without anything that resembles landscape.  It looks like a salvage yard.  Heck, I've driven through places like Georgia and seen some dirt poor areas with trailers.  Even they have some pride and hang a plant on a hook or a planter and attempt a patch of grass as an effort for a lawn.  Nothing says welcome to Wareham better than a 1/4 mile of Rt 6/28 that looks like Hell on Earth!


They should round up all the flunkies and troublemakers in school and take then for a tour of those trailers to show where they are going to live if they don't straighten up.  Like a scared straight program!

That is correct, WBTS, I have never heard anyone that I know that has visited Wareham comment about the manufactured home communities in Wareham. Really!


Your claim that “There's like 50 of them!” (trailer parks) is simply not accurate. You also claim that, “Everybody knows that Wareham is the trailer park capital of the area!” Really? I disagree with you completely. People I know refer to Wareham as the cranberry capital. Perhaps the people you are talking to are being misinformed by statements similar to what you are making here.  One has to wonder if your comments are intentionally misleading. Although you write well, you are either careless with your facts, you’re not well informed or you simply make things up to suit your needs at the time.

Ok, Archangel, I can’t disagree with you.  If you say you’ve never heard comments about the plethora of trailers in town, then you’ve never heard comments about them.


This morning there were like 50 squirrels in my lawn.  Maybe there really were 20 but is seemed like a lot regardless.  Should I have said there’s like a million trailer parks to make it clear that I was just throwing out an exaggerated number.  Don’t take me so literally.  I write on here because I enjoy it.  I have a style.  I’m opinionated.  I’m facetious.  I’m sacrastic. I’m tongue in cheek.  One thing for sure is that I will never attack or name call any of my fellow commenters.  We’re all a happy family on here.  I’m just that guy in the fam that ya hate to love.  Call me Archie.


Cranberries, boating, beaches, fishing, camping, vacations, etc, etc. Wareham is known for a lot of good things.  It’s known for trailers, converted cottages not meant for year round occupancy, and long term motel occupants.  Those are not so good things.  I know a lot.  I do not make things up.  I try to make light or jazz it up a bit because it’s enjoyable.


Back to trailer parks.  I think there really are about 20.  And yes, even if its not 20, everybody knows that it’s a disproportionately high number. Unfortunately there’s a stigma and a lot of derogatory things about them. That is really lousy for the seniors in the nice parks.  I have friends in the one off of Charlotte Furnace.  It’s really nice in there!


Thanks for the compliment on my writing.  I owe it to being an honor roll student at a public high school, a BS from a state school, and a sorta good career that requires writing.
