Via an anonymous tipster:

The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a male wanted in connection with a forcible touching that occurred at approximately 0300 hours on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at the intersection of Freeman Street and Manhattan Avenue in the confines of the 94 Precinct.

A 37-year-old female victim was walking her dog when the suspect approached her and grabbed her buttocks. The suspect then walked away but returned and had a physical altercation with the victim before fleeing on foot.

The suspect is an Hispanic male, 5’8″, 200 lbs, wearing blue hooded sweatshirt, and blue jeans.

Live From The 94th Precinct Community Council Meeting

As many of those reading this are undoubtedly aware, a homeless man was beaten very severely at McCarren Park this weekend. Gothamist has a synopsis of this horrific incident which you can read by clicking here. In the following footage Deputy Inspector Hurson gives us an update as to what happened. The good news: they have made an arrest. The bad news: they are not certain if the fellow who was assaulted, Pawel, will survive.

It goes without saying that the subject of homelessness dominated last night’s meeting. In fact our City Councilman, Steve Levin had plenty to say on the subject. What I found particularly interesting (and encouraging) was his run-down of the new respite shelter in the works to give our homeless a safe place to sleep this upcoming winter. In addition he outlines the resources available to our local homeless and the rather (and this is putting it nicely) problematic Greenpoint Hotel/the quarter house. Do take a moment to give this— and the frank discussion which followed— a listen.

New York Shitty Day Starter: What Happened On Bedford Avenue?

A chap named Dale (who took the above photo at North 7 Street & Bedford Avenue) writes at 12:54 a.m. in an email entitled “Traffic stopped at Bedford and North 7th”:

Don’t know what was going on.

Unfortunately, I do. Per an anonymous tipster:

On Friday March 23rd, 2012 at approximately 2200 hours, police responded to a 911 call of a pedestrian struck at the Bedford Avenue Train Station, within the confines of the 94th Precinct (Transit District 33). Upon arrival, Police determined that the victim (M/W/20) was riding the “L” line train along with the suspect (M/W/30-35) when a verbal dispute ensued. When exiting the train, the suspect initiated a physical altercation with victim resulting in both individuals falling onto the road track bed. The suspect fled the scene and the victim was struck by a Northbound train resulting in serious body trauma. EMS responded and transported the victim to Bellevue Hospital where he was later pronounced DOA. There are no arrests at this time. The investigation is ongoing.

The family has been notified and the victim has been identified

Gothamist has a very good run-down of what happened. You can read it by clicking here. (Thanks Peter for bringing this to my attention!)

From The New York Shitty Inbox: An Assault/Attempted Robbery On Montrose Avenue

I have refrained from posting this item until I had all the facts. Now that I have them I will pass them along here. On Thursday, July 28, at 9:00 p.m. a young woman was assaulted after entering her apartment building on Montrose Avenue.* The assailant, who wore a red bandanna to conceal his face, wrestled her to the floor. While her companions watched he attempted to use a box cutter to cut the strap of her purse. She had the presence of mind to (as it was described to me) “scream bloody murder”. Luckily, this was enough to scare him. He fled the building and rode off on a bicycle. A police report has been filed.

It was posited to me by my tipster that this man managed to gain entrance to the building because both doors gracing the entrance were left open. Please, PLEASE let this be a warning to all reading this tome to exercise additional vigilance when exiting and entering your homes. Do not simply “buzz” people into your building. Demand that all visitors identify themselves or better yet: go to the front door in person and let people in.

For all intents and purposes Montrose Avenue is a highly trafficked and pretty safe street. If this can happen there (a stone’s throw from the 90th Precinct, I’ll add) it can happen anywhere. Stay safe, folks!
