Officers were dispatched to the area of Goffe Street on Friday afternoon where they located 49-year-old Brooks Macquarrie of Wallingford bleeding in the street.

Macquarrie was test driving a scooter he'd repaired at the Power Sports Bike Shop on Whalley Avenue when he was attacked by a group of black male teenagers.

Macquarrie was rushed to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.

At last check, Macquarrie was listed in guarded but stable condition.

Police continue to investigate the assault.
