A state worker at a Carver pond was slashed in the face Saturday for denying a woman entry into a non-accessible area of Myles Standish State Forest, and the suspect remains at large.

According to Massachusetts State Police, a 63-year-old Department of Conservation and Recreation worker reported on Saturday, July 23 that at around 2:10 p.m., he was attacked by a woman at Barrett’s Pond in Carver after telling her the Pond Gate was closed and that she could not enter.

“After slashing the worker in the face, inflicting a superficial injury, the woman quickly left the scene with a male companion,” State Police said. “The two were seen leaving the area in a car, heading toward Long Pond Road and the Plymouth entrance to the state forest.”

The victim was treated at the scene by Carver EMS and declined to be taken to the hospital.
