OXFORD – Police have arrested an Oxford man for what appears to be a random attack on a local man walking his dog, striking him unconscious and fracturing his skull.
David Anderson, 32, of Oxford, was arrested Dec. 31 on a county court bench warrant. The warrant was for violating a conditional discharge placed on Anderson on March 27.
Sheriff’s investigators suspect Anderson was the perpetrator in the unprovoked attack on a 49-year-old Oxford man walking his dog in the village on Dec. 7.
Police said the victim was struck in the head at approximately 4:15 on the morning of Dec. 7 while walking his dog on North Washington Avenue.
The victim said the attack was entirely unprovoked and that he didn’t even exchange words with the assailant before he was suddenly struck unconscious...
