Police: Man slashed at 82-year-old man using a box cutter

Posted: Updated:

PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) - Police in Massachusetts say a Provincetown man slashed the neck and back of an 82-year-old man in a vicious attack.

Twenty-nine-year-old Aaron Mrowka pleaded not guilty to assault and battery charges on Friday. The Cape Cod Times reports the court ordered he be held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

The victim was in stable condition Friday at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis.

Police say Mrowka attacked the man with a box cutter Friday evening and attempted to chase him before fleeing.

Police tracked Mrowka's bicycle and running route with a police dog which eventually led to his arrest.
