Freetown Police are looking for the public’s help to identify a group of men who allegedly assault pedestrians.

According to Lieutenant Steven Abbott, at approximately 8:55 pm on Saturday, two males and a female were walking along South Main Street in the Assonet Village. As they approached the area of the bandstand and “four corners”, they were assaulted by four suspects in a motor vehicle. The victims were chased by the suspects onto Elm Street where a confrontation occurred.

The four suspects are described as four white males. One of these suspects is described as approximately 5’-7” in height; long (below shoulders,) curly, light brown or blonde hair: approximately 25-30 years of age; and wearing khaki-colored shorts. A second suspect is described as approximately 5’-10” in height; short (buzz cut), dark brown hair; goatee; age 25-30 years of age; and wearing a tank top.

The suspect vehicle is described as: dark in color (possible black); an older model (1990s); four-door sedan (possibly a Toyota Corolla); with red aftermarket lights on the front.
