Yesterday we published a story where we were told by a viewer that Mr. Richard Parsons had been mugged. It wasn't actually a mugging, he was simply brutally attacked and beaten, I've been asked not to give details of his injuries. I will say however our reliable source stated "he was beaten to a pulp."
Mr. Parsons had attended last Monday's City Council Meeting and was walking through the Downtown Plaza and then down Fitzwater Street where he was attacked at 1100 Parsons Road. This occurred some time between 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm.
If ANYONE witnessed what happened, please make contact with the Salisbury Police Department and help them solve this horrific crime. Again, this happened Monday night.
