One man was killed and another man has serious injuries after being assaulted in Willington early Friday morning and police are searching for a person seen fleeing on a motorcycle who is suspected in the attack.

State police said they responded to Mirtl Road in Willington just after 9 a.m. , Friday, found the two men and started CPR because of the severity of their injuries.

Both men were transported and LifeStar responded for at least one of them, police said.

An "edged weapon" was used, according to police, and they are working to identify what the weapon was.

It appears the assailant and victims did not know each and investigators called the attacks an isolated incident.

Police identified the deceased victim as Theodore Demers, 62, of Willington. They did not release the identity of the second victim.
