Police: Man found assaulted in Walpole
A 44-year-old man was found beaten in Walpole, according to authorities.
Foxborough police said they discovered the man lying on a paved private road, which is located near the Rodman Ford Dealership, on Thursday around 10:30 p.m.
“This roadway leads to a trail that connects to the Shufelt Road neighborhood in Walpole,” police said, adding that initial investigations indicate that three white men were seen walking from the direction of Walpole toward Route 1 in Foxborough when they encountered the man. “They attacked the victim for unknown reasons. The suspects then fled towards Route 1, leaving the victim on the ground.”
The man, who lives in Billerica, suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries. He was taken to a Boston hospital, where he was treated.
“At this time this appears to be an isolated incident, and there is no known threat to the public,” police said.
If anyone has information about the assault, contact Foxborough Police Detective Ken Fitzgerald at 508-543-1212.
