Alleged Lynn carjacking victim, 74, with the help of a cane, stops man in his tracks.

I was on an off day from work, driving from Somerville to Swampscott, when I heard a call on the police scanner that piqued my curiosity. A man was struggling with another man in a Lynn parking lot. The police dispatcher said something about a possible car theft at that address. I was an eighth of a mile away so I decided to check it out. I saw a couple of good samaritans and an older gentleman named Gordon Parker. I also saw a bloodied suspect. The blood was mostly from a cut above his left eye. Gordon Parker, 74, used his walking cane to fend off this man. CLICK on top photo for VIDEO of Gordon Parker describing his day.  All copyright Mark Garfinkel 2012.
