Haverhill police are looking for two men who allegedly struck residents early this morning at a North Avenue condominium complex while masked.
One resident was taken to a local hospital for what were described as “non-life threatening injuries” after the incident took place just before 2 a.m., at 440 North Ave. Police were called to the scene after receiving a report of two men attacking each other with wooden sticks. Upon arrival, one man reported he had been struck by two masked men while he was outside smoking a cigarette.
“Give me all of your weed,” one of the men demanded. According to police, “A struggle ensued between two assailants and multiple residents of the apartment, both inside and outside. The reporting parties claim to have no knowledge of who the assailants were or what they were demanding.” Police are not yet describing the nature of the sticks.
One of the masked men was described as thin and tall and the other shorter, police said in a statement. Haverhill police are asking anyone with information to contact them or leave an anonymous tip at 978-373-1212.
Besides responding officers, Haverhill detectives and a Massachusetts State Police K9 unit also investigated.
