Victim to meet alleged attacker for first time

January 31, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Having lost the use of his legs, Donald Paterson doesn't leave his third-floor apartment at Kennedy Manor as often as he'd like these days. But tomorrow, his wife, Trudy, will help him into his wheelchair, jostle him into their minivan and take him to meet someone he's been waiting a long time to see: the boy who left him a cripple.
More than nine months after he was stabbed in the back, Paterson expects to confront his alleged attacker in Family Court.
It will be the first time the 74-year-old retired machinist has ever seen the boy.
