Stafford man attacked by three men
By KEITH EPPS
A young Stafford man was beaten by three men while walking in the area of Barretts Height Road and Ridgeway Drive Tuesday evening in North Stafford, police said.
The man was walking about 6:15 p.m. when he noticed the three men behind him, Sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy said. He was concerned right away and became more concerned when he heard footsteps quickly approaching him.
Kennedy said two of the assailants suddenly grabbed him by the arms and the group hit him multiple times in the neck, face and body before fleeing in an unknown direction.
Kennedy said the assailants, described only as black males, made no attempt to take any of the victim’s property. The victim told police he had no idea who attacked him or why.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 658-4400 or Crime Solvers at 659-2020.
