BROCKTON (CBS) – A Holbrook man is accused of assaulting a bicyclist with frozen sausage links in Brockton on Sunday morning.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Karen Twomey reports.

A man told police he was riding his bicycle near the Brockton Fairgrounds at around 8 a.m. when he was attacked.

Police said Michael Baker was likely trying to rob the victim’s bicycle after stealing some food from the fairgrounds.

“He noticed that the suspect had a 10-gallon trash barrel full of frozen sausage, bread, and a block of cut cheese and a case of hot dogs,” said Brockton Police Lt. Paul Bonanca.

Baker allegedly swung frozen sausage links at the victim and beat him with a wrench.

“Apparently he tried to hit him with those items, along with hitting him with a wrench in order to take his bike,” said Lt. Bonanca.

The victim suffered what police described as “multiple lacerations” from the attack and was taken to Brockton Hospital for treatment.
