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.
