BLACKSTONE, MASS. (WHDH) - The man sought in connection with a deadly stabbing in Worcester late Wednesday night has been arrested after turning himself over to Blackstone police, officials said.
Thomas Bergstrom turned himself in at the Blackston Police Department and was arrested on a warrant out of Worcester on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to Worcester police.
Officers responding to a report of a stabbing at a home on Lapierre Street around 10:30 p.m. found a 34-year-old woman in a bedroom suffering from several stab wounds.
The woman, whose name has not been released, was later pronounced dead at an area hospital.
Residents say they are relieved this manhunt is finally coming to an end.
“It was just a whole lot of yelling about did you see a guy with a knife? Which way did the guy with the knife go?” Neighbor Erik Pitts said as he described the mayhem outside his home Wednesday. “I’m assuming that they thought that he might still be in the house at that point.”
Investigators say Bergstrom and the victim were involved in a “dating relationship.”
Bergstrom was out on bail at the time of the alleged incident. He was arrested in December on charges of aggravated rape for threatening to kill the victim on Christmas Eve with a knife.
The investigation is still ongoing.
