STAMFORD, Conn. — Police were investigating two recent assaults that took place in Veterans Park in Stamford, Lt. Diedrich Hohn said.
On Wednesday night, a man was struck with an object in the back of the head and knocked out cold, Hohn said. A witness, who works near the park, broke up the attack, wrestling with the suspect, Hohn said.
Police were not sure what weapon was used in the assault.
The victim was taken to Stamford Hospital and treated for multiple cuts to the head, eyes and chin, Hohn said. The witness suffered a broken nose but reported the incident before receiving treatment and will meet with police again, Hohn said.
In an earlier incident, a man was hit with a 40-ounce beer bottle after arguing with a man he didn’t know and received multiple staples for his injuries, Hohn said. Hohn did not know the exact date of the assault when speaking with The Stamford Daily Voice.
The suspect in that alleged assault is a black male in his early 20s, Hohn said.
Hohn requested that anyone with information about either incident call the Bureau of Criminal Investigation at 203-977-4417.
