"Because the spot is popular with people walking their dogs or fishing in the harbor, authorities are asking anyone who may have been in the area on Sunday evening to comeforward with information, no matter how minor or peripheral it might seem. Specifically, theyhope someone may have seen a person or persons in the area of the pier on the evening or night of May 20," read the release by Conley's office.

Anyone with information about the assault can call the state police using 911 on a mobile phone or contact the Detective Unit at 617-727-8817.

Video cameras must have captured this. That bridge, the locks, that park are sealed tight with video cameras.

i hope he will be ok, and the criminal(s) brought to justice. When you pick on the homeless there's definitely something wrong with you.

I knew him.. he was a good guy who lost his way... he didn't deserve this and I hope they find the scumbags who did this and give us 5 minutes to make them feel what they did to him
