WEBSTER, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are investigating an axe attack at a home in Webster that left two people with serious injuries overnight, authorities said.
Officers responding to a reported domestic assault at a home on Brookside Avenue around 12:15 a.m. found two people suffering from multiple injuries, according to the Webster Police Department.
The victims were taken to an area hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Detectives could be seen leaving the home with bags of evidence in hand. A blood-covered axe was also recovered at the scene of the alleged assault, law enforcement sources said.
The Worcester District Attorney’s Office declined to comment on the investigation because the assault involves a juvenile, sources added.
There have been no arrests made in connection with the incident.
Neighborhood resident Mark Gerby says the apparent attack has left him startled and concerned.
“This neighborhood you really don’t hear of anything going on,” he said. “It’s quiet. You can almost leave your car unlocked at night if you need too.”
Troopers assigned to the district attorney’s office are assisting Webster police with the investigation.
There were no additional details immediately available.
