    "It's just very bizarre for something like this to happen here," said longtime West Newton Square shopkeeper Valerie Miller, who owns nearby Artitudes. "You'd think it's safe between the police station and the police annex... it's really scary."

    Police said they didn't have to look far to arrest Kirby who remained at the scene. Witnesses pointed him out when officers arrived.

    Kirby is facing serious charges including assault with intent to murder.

    Police said the two men did not know one another, but the reason for the crime is still unknown.

    The victim is 53-years-old and is expected to be OK.

    Workers at the nearby Dunkin Donuts said Kirby is a regular customer and often asks people for money or cigarettes.
