Baltimore’s “Running Man,” Keith Boissiere, was attacked Friday afternoon while embarking on one of his famous jogs around town, police said.
Boissiere, 67, was running along the 600 block of W. North Ave. around 1:20 p.m. when a teen wearing a white shirt and black shorts walked up to him and accused Boissiere of breaking into his house, according to a police report on the incident.
Boissiere told police the teen punched him in the face and struck him with a stick in the left eye, causing a cut. Boissiere then ran across the street. His attacker allegedly followed before fleeing the scene, according to police.
Police say Boissiere refused medical treatment at the scene, telling officers that he wanted to continue with his jog.
