Cambridge Police report a woman walking on Loughery Walkway was "struck in the head with a blunt object" by a guy on a bicycle around 10:45 p.m. on Saturday. A passerby found her bleeding from the head and called police.
Officers were able to obtain photos of the attack from a nearby business's surveillance camera and began searching the area for the suspect, police say, adding not long after, officers found a guy wearing clothing matching the suspect's in the video on Fifth Street:
An interview was conducted and a search of the suspect’s apartment was executed. The bicycle was found in the rear yard of the suspect’s apartment along with clothing seen on the video. Additionally, the victim’s property was found in a nearby trash barrel.
The suspect was also found to be in possession of a double-edged knife
The suspect, 16 and so too young to have his name released, was charged with aggravated assault and unarmed robbery - as well as unlawful possession of a deadly weapon for the double-edged knife police say they found on him.
