On Sunday, February 3 at about 3:30 p.m., Worcester Police officers responded to the area of Foster and Mercantile St for a report of a blind person being attacked.

Upon arrival, officers observed a blind male with broken glasses, a ripped shirt, and blood coming from two large cuts above his eye. He said that he was legally blind and needed help finding his cane.
