MARLBORO, MASS. (WHDH) - The Marlborough Police Department is seeking the public’s help to find two suspects who allegedly assaulted and robbed a victim in broad daylight.

According to a police Facebook post, at about 10 a.m. Saturday, two suspects assaulted a man on Main Street near Prospect Street and robbed him of “an undetermined amount of money.” Witnesses took photos and videos during and after the assault. The alleged assailants fled the scene on a motorcycle.

The witness footage shows the two men beating up the victim on the sidewalk as he repeatedly screams “Help me!”

A woman eventually came to his aid, chasing the men away.

“I don’t know, it was crazy,” said Wilson Coloado, a witness who was working nearby when the assault happened. “They have a gun, and (hit) his face.”

He said he was working nearby when others around him looked to see what the commotion was. He then saw the two men and their motorcycle.

A family member of the victim told 7NEWS that he is doing well and is at home resting. He added that the family is shocked and devastated that this could happen in the community they love.

Video of the attack spread quickly on social media, which locals hope will help police track down the suspects.

“Seven years here, and I never see that,” Coloado said. “This is crazy, Marlborough is chilling, is good (to) live. But I don’t know, people now– it’s crazy.”

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident, suspects or make and model of the motorcycle pictured to call the Marlborough Police Department Investigations Unit and Det. Chris Bradley at 774-556-4000. Those who call in can remain anonymous.
