PEABODY Two Salem men are facing charges following an alleged assault early Wednesday morning.

Shortly before 2:30 a.m., police got a call about men assaulting on a woman on Tremont Street.

Police arrested Jason B. Coombs, 36, and Jamison P. Wood, 34, both of 321 Jefferson Ave. in Salem, on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to rape, unarmed assault with intent to rob, and assault and battery with serious injury.

Because of the nature of the charges, Peabody Police Capt. Dennis Bonaiuto said there were few details of the assault that could be released at this time. He did say that the victim may have known at least one of the suspects beforehand.
