Domestic in Salsbury Leads to Manhunt in Rowley

15 Apr

Early this morning, Salsbury PD responded to a domestic violence call, but the suspect and victim had already fled the scene. Evidence of an assault was discovered at the home.

Shortly after 5:30, the suspect’s vehicle was found abandoned at the weigh station on the Southbound side of I-95 just after exit 54. A large amount of blood was found in the van and on the ground. Massachusetts State Police troopers, assisted by K9 and a helicopter, searched the Georgetown-Rowley woods for the two people involved.

Both parties were located in the woods behind King George Drive in Boxford shortly after 9 AM. The victim was reported to have multiple stab wounds and was transferred to an ambulance in an unknown condition to Beverly Hospital. The suspect was taken into custody, and was also transported by EMS to Anna Jacques Hospital for unknown injuries. State police continue to search the area for the weapon, believed to be a kitchen knife.

Salsbury PD is handling the investigation.

All information is unconfirmed and is based on police radio traffic, and as such, is subject to change as the situation evolves.
