Police: Naked man tased, arrested after repeatedly stabbing 70-year-old woman in Mashpee condo

MASHPEE, MASS. (WHDH) - A naked man was tased and arrested after authorities say he repeatedly stabbed a 70-year-old woman inside a condo in Mashpee during a violent rampage early Thursday morning.

Andrew Mrozinski, 33, is slated to be arraigned Thursday afternoon in Falmouth District Court on charges including assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, mayhem, and resisting arrest, according to Mashpee police. Additional charges may be forthcoming.

Officers responding to the Sea Oaks Condominiums on Falmouth Road around 2:30 a.m. were confronted by Mrozinski, who immediately charged at them, police said.

After a brutal struggle, Mrozinski, who was naked, was taken into custody and transported to Falmouth Hospital for a medical evaluation. He has since been released but remains in police custody.

The 70-year-old woman was flown to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence with multiple life-threatening stab wounds.

A second victim, a 35-year-old man, was taken to Falmouth Hospital with a head injury following an apparent assault, according to the Mashpee Fire Department.

Jim Crowley says he called 911 after he was startled by a loud banging on the side of his home. When Crowley opened his door, a man bleeding from his head asked him for help.

“Someone was either trying to hurt him or kill him,” Crowley said of the victim. “He said ‘please call the police.'”

Mrozinski was naked, yelling, singing, and doing a lot of “crazy stuff,” according to Crowley.

Matt Stevens, who lives nearby the crime scene, says he’s in shock following this violent episode.

“Crazy for this neighborhood. There’s a lot of elder people here, so it’s pretty unusual for that to happen here,” he said.

The Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office is assisting Mashpee police with an investigation.
