Brockton Men Charged in Fatal Knife, Baseball Bat Attack
BROCKTON — Two Brockton men have been charged in connection with the stabbing death of a man in the city this summer — and one of them allegedly attacked a service dog and a nearby woman with a baseball bat during the incident, according to the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office.
Keith Disharoom, 40, and Mark Stroud, 25, have each been charged with one count of murder in the fatal stabbing of 44-year-old Eric Cohen, formerly of Holbrook, the D.A.'s office said.
The men were formally indicted on Friday.
At around 7:38 p.m. on July 18, Brockton Police received a 911 call reporting an assault with a knife near 553 North Main Street.
Emergency responders arrived to find an unresponsive man with two stab wounds to his upper chest.
He was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital before being transferred to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where he was pronounced dead.
In a joint investigation by state police and Brockton police, authorities found that Disharoom and the victim had fought.
During the altercation, Disharoom allegedly stabbed Cohen, while Stroud allegedly hit Cohen's service dog and a nearby woman with a bat.
Stroud was also indicted on one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and one count of cruelty to animals.
