2 men beaten with a bat in Pawtucket parking lot

By Alana Cerrone


One man is charged and two are hospitalized after an
early morning assault in Pawtucket.

Around 1:30 Saturday morning, a Pawtucket officer spotted a fight outside the
Wendy's at 120 Broad St.,
and immediately pulled into the parking lot.

As soon as he pulled up, three men got into their car and
fled from the scene.

The officer found two victims who were beaten with a bat – a 38-year-old Pawtucket man and a 29-year-old Woonsocket man – and they were sent to the
hospital with what police believe are non-life threatening injuries.

Police later found the suspects' car and arrested one of the
three suspects, 31-year-old Edwin Hernandez of Central Falls, and charged him with two
counts of felony assault.

Pawtucket Police are now asking that anyone with information
on the other two men call Detective Doran at 401-727-9100.
