One of three suspects wanted in connection with a Wareham stabbing has surrendered.

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

Two other suspects remain at large - 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. Officer Aronson determined that the victim 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. 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.
