Man Reports Unprovoked Attack

A Putnam County man, who was looking for a local pharmacy Monday, was apparently the victim of a random attack. Police say it happened at the Farmer's Market on Mahler Avenue. The man says he pulled into the market about 8 pm to ask for directions and was sprayed with mace when he rolled down his window. Police were alerted after someone noticed the driver dumping water over his head a few blocks away. The victim and his passenger say they did not know their attackers.
