PAWTUCKET â€” On Friday just after 10 a.m., an employee of Artee Home said she was coming down the stairwell from the municipal parking garage when she came upon a disturbing sight. A man who appeared to be passed out was sprawled at the bottom of the first-floor landing, blocking her passage. The man had also apparently defecated and urinated in the spot. The woman, who asked that her name not be used, said she tried speaking to the man and was relieved to see that he was at least breathing. She called police and rescue personnel responded. The stairwell was cordoned off and later cleaned.
