    The male suspect fled down Commandants Way toward Spruce Street, Kyes said. He is described as having a husky build, wearing black shorts, a black T-shirt and a black hat. He was accompanied by a woman with dirty blonde hair and wearing green-colored shorts.

    Kyes said the weapon was tossed in Island End River behind the tennis courts.

    Steven Rodes arrived to the scene just after police began investigating, and said, "the victim was just laying there."

    The victim was a security guard for Alliance Security and off duty at the time of the attack, a company spokesman said in a statement.

    "Our supports, thoughts and prayers are with him and his family," the statement said.

    State police said their Underwater Recovery Unit is searching for evidence in the waters of the Mystic River and Chelsea Creek. They said their detectives are still in the process of conducting interviews.
