According to police, the man was jumped by two black men, both about 6' tall with medium builds. One wore a dark blue hoodie, while the other wore a burnt red T-shirt and a red hat with a "C" imprinted on it, possibly a Cincinnati Reds hat.
The victim, suffering head trauma, was transported to Brigham & Women’s Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. However, once at the hospital, the victim’s injuries worsened and his condition and the nature of his injuries were elevated to life threatening status.
