Police: Man Attacked After Asking Others to Stop Urinating on Charles Street

Police log from Beacon Hill, Oct. 10-14.

Police say that a man who asked two others to "put it away" as they were urinating on the street so that he and his wife could pass was beaten Sunday.

According to police reports, the victim had asked two men at 149 Charles St. to stop urinating on the street and then an argument ensued. The two suspects followed the man to his car, punched him until he fell and then repeatedly kicked him in the head.

The man's wife called 911 at 1:26 a.m. and police arrived in time to find the suspects, and place one of them under arrest. The victim, who had previously suffered a brain injury during combat in Iraq, was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital.

Terrible! Crime appears to be increasing around here. Hope that gentlemen is ok. Very scary. I have found multiple drunk male trouble makers peeing on my steps and others homes around the area. Lots of people with little respect for others and their property. CCTV may stop them, when they realize the video of themselves acting a fool could be released to the public, employers, parents neighbors and teachers. Has the man with the dog been caught yet??

last week someone was attacked for asking a dog walker to pick up after his dog. now this, we are living in a world full of violent people, and it is best to keep ones mouth shut and call 911. mumbles should hire more police and make patrols more visible in neighborhoods.
