Stamford police said that a man was found laying in the road near the Stamford train station who had been stripped, beaten and hacked by unknown assailants.
Lt. Diedrich Hohn said at 3:15 a.m. a taxi cab driver on Station Place found a man lying in the road wearing only a garbage bag.
The cabbie brought the man to police headquarters on Bedford Street and after police saw he was bleeding profusely from his upper body and torso, he was rushed to Stamford Hospital by ambulance.
Hohn said that the 22-year-old Stamford man told police he was drinking with four men in Port Chester, New York until early Friday morning. When they got back to Stamford he said they attacked him, stripped off all his clothes and hacked him several times with a machete and drove away.
Hohn said that before the man was taken into emergency surgery to close his several wounds, he told police that he knew the first names of his attackers.
Friday morning after the Solar Car Wash on Greenwich Avenue opened up, police were called by an employee to report that he had found a “blood mess” around his business, Hohn said.
Hohn said that when they checked the at the car wash from the early morning they found surveillance tape of the naked man banging on a car wash door trying to find help.
Hohn said the man told them he kept walking and found a garbage bag to cover himself with until he laid down in the road and was found by the taxi cab driver.
