ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Police are investigating a report that a group of assailants emerged from the woods in Maryland’s capital city and attacked a man with shovels and a garden rake.
An Annapolis police report released Monday says the victim was at a “flea market type event” with multiple vendors set up in a parking lot on Saturday when the suspects struck him multiple times with the garden tools.
A police department spokesman said the man was taken to a hospital after suffering cuts and head pain.
The victim told investigators he didn’t recognize the men that allegedly attacked him. Police said the group escaped in a black sedan.
