STURBRIDGE — Police arrested a Sturbridge man on Tuesday, July 17, after he assaulted another man with his weed whacker.

Just before 12 p.m., Officer Hillary Dadalt was patrolling Route 20 westbound when she was flagged down by an eastbound motor vehicle. Dadalt reversed directions and met the operator of the vehicle in a parking lot, where he informed her that a man had just assaulted him with a weed whacker at Hyland Brewery. The victim's arms and hands had multiple lacerations as a result of the attack.

The victim also told Dadalt that he had approached the suspect due to a recent incident between the two men that allegedly occurred in Southbridge.
