Hello, I’m a Greenpointer and follow your blog. Since you are always in the know I’d thought I’d reach out to you. I think something bad happened on last night on our street. cops all over the street and one was sitting outside the bldg across the street. 11 Clifford. Do you know anything about this?
No, I do not know anything about this incident— but YIKES! On a (somewhat) related note, yesterday I was asked about an incident on Manhattan Avenue and India Street culminating in this:
Apparently these was a
car chase pursuit between New York’s Finest and a “perp” Saturday night around 11:30 p.m. Many police cars (including one which jumped the curb, took out a stop sign and damaged the above call box) were noted. That’s all I know. If anyone knows what happened here or at 11 Clifford do share via comments or via email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire. Thanks!
UPDATE, 3:40 p.m.: I have been told that the incident on Clifford Street came to pass between 2:00 and 5:30 a.m., and although drugs and blood were found, there was no body. No body = no murder, folks.
UPDATE, 9:20 p.m.: Now I am being told there is a body. A tipster writes:
So now I’m told via my next door neighbor who talked to the owner of the building on Clifford that there WAS a body. I guess the guy was beat up on his stoop around 9pm, in front of a lot of witnesses. He made it into his house, where the landlady heard a big crash around 1:30 or 2, and then called the cops to check on him. That’s when they found him dead. He was a guy in his early 30s who owned two dogs. No one has wanted to ID any of his attackers for fear of retaliation.
