Ed Forry, co-founder and longtime publisher of the Dorchester Reporter, was attacked around 5:30 p.m. in Dorchester Park, his son, current publisher and editor Bill Forry, reports:
My father was assaulted in Dorchester Park this afternoon; he's OK, but was mugged and choked unconscious @ 5:30 near Carney entrance.
We should all be vigilant in/around the park; that said, the best way to secure our parks are to use them and watch/report trouble.
Our family will there for Thursday's free concert 7 p.m., Dot Park. After all, it's OUR park; not some coward mugger.
