Police have charged a Massachusetts man in connection with a stabbing that occurred earlier Friday.

At approximately 5:00 p.m., the Hopkinton Emergency Call Center received two 9-1-1 calls regarding a stabbing that had occurred inside Hometown Barbershop at 28 Main Street.

Upon arrival, Hopkinton officers found a pregnant woman inside the business had suffered multiple stab wounds. First responders immediately administered aid to the woman, who was taken by ambulance to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.

40-year-old Harry David Martinez of Framingham surrendered to Hopkinton Police without incident. A preliminary investigation determined that Martinez and the woman both work at the business.

Martinez, who suffered cuts in the attack, was taken by ambulance to MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham and was charged with Attempted Murder, Assault and Battery on a Pregnant Person, and Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon.

The investigation into this incident is active and ongoing by the Hopkinton Police Department and State Police detectives assigned to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office.

“As a Department we are committed to connecting the victim with our partners in trauma support so that she has access to counseling and understanding in the aftermath of this attack,” Chief Bennett said.

Martinez is expected to be arraigned on Monday, January 3rd, in Framingham District Court.
