It would be nice to know if the suspect and victim knew each other and whether the assailant is a danger to the general public. Also, where in Framingham did this happen?

I was also wondering where this happened. Hopefully the neighborhood residents were told to be "on the lookout".

Richardson Circle, this aught to be good. You sure a machete was used here instead of a baseball bat? Joe Rizoli

Hi, Mike - I don't have an update - often, police don't release names of victims in such assaults; if/when we find out, though, I'll update the story.
