    Police ask public to help identify man found unresponsive off North Road in Sudbury

    Sudbury police are asking the public to help identify a man who was found lying unresponsive next to a sidewalk in the northern part of the town Friday night.

    At about 7:35 p.m., police and fire personnel responded to 484 North Road, which is also Route 117, for a call reporting a person in medical distress, according to a statement posted on the Town of Sudbury’s website. The area is near the intersection of Powder Mill Road.

    After authorities initiated “medical measures,” the man was taken to Emerson Hospital in Concord, the statement said.


    The man was not carrying any identification, the statement said. He was described as white, about 55 to 65 years old, balding with mostly gray but some brownish-reddish hair, and very blue eyes. He is about 5 feet 9 inches and 250 pounds. He was wearing a red Natick “Redmen” shirt, tan pants, and gray and blue sneakers.

    The man has a “substantial” scar running down the center of his chest and abdomen that may be related to open heart surgery, and he was carrying what appears to be an “Indala” security pass key, the statement said.

    A witness reported seeing him walk over the town line from Maynard into Sudbury.

    Initial investigation shows that the incident appears to be “medically related” with no foul play involved, the statement said.

    No further details were available. Sudbury and State Police continue to investigate, the statement said. Those with information are urged to call Sudbury Police at 978-443-1042.
