A Danvers man reported to the Peabody Police Department that he was assaulted and robbed by a wrench-wielding mugger at a mobile home park at 286 Newbury St. on Monday at 2:52 p.m. The victim said his wallet was stolen and described two suspects, both white males -- one brown-haired in a Bruins hat, the other blonde.
