Worcester, MA (May 15, 2017) - On Monday May 15th at about 11:20 PM, police were dispatched to Mt. Pleasant St for a report of a male laid out on the sidewalk. Upon arrival, they observed the forty-year-old victim, who appeared to be extremely disoriented, on the ground. He was unable to give a lucid description of what had happened to him. The victim was transported to the hospital with a possible head injury.
Subsequent investigation revealed that the male had been attacked and robbed. The preliminary investigation indicates that as the male walked to his car, he was struck in the head from behind and fell to the ground. His attacker appeared to strike him in the head again, and take something from his pockets. The attacker left.
As the victim was unconscious on the ground, a group of people walked to the victim and began going through his clothes. They took his keys from his person and used them to enter his locked vehicle. They took several items out of the vehicle before leaving the victim on the ground and walking away.
