Police: Annapolis man attacked by group with rake, shovels

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.
