Lynn Police: Robber punched man in the face, robbed him of his drill

LYNN — An Everett man walking on Lynn Shore Drive with a drill was punched in the face and robbed in broad daylight on Sunday.

The 48-year-old man was carrying a drill case outside 300 Lynn Shore Drive shortly after 4 p.m. when he was punched and knocked to the ground by an unknown man, Lynn Police Lt. Michael Kmiec said.

The assailant demanded his drill and took off with the tool and the victim’s cellphone. It’s unclear why the man was carrying a drill but 300 Lynn Shore Drive is a condominium complex, Kmiec said.

The victim declined medical attention and could only describe his attacker as a man in his 20s, Kmiec said.
