SUDBURY -- The man accused of a random stabbing attack on a mother and a baby in Sudbury in June is expected to plead guilty in mid-December.
The incident happened in a busy box store parking lot on Marcus Drive.
25-year-old Alexander Stavropoulos faces two charges of attempted murder in connection to the incident. After a brief court appearance via video link from the Sudbury jail on Thursday, a date for resolution in the case was set for Dec. 17.
He’s been in custody since his arrest the day of the stabbing.
Stavropoulos is previously known to police from a violent incident at the downtown Sudbury transit terminal, where he threatened people with a knife and charged at responding officers in April 2018.
He served 99 days in jail in connection to that incident.
