Attempted rapist in Astoria

From the Village Voice:

On Sunday around 4 in the morning, this guy came up to a woman as she came out of the 31st Street subway station in Astoria, knocked her down, took her cellphone, and then tried to rape her. Failing in this attempt, and took off. He's described as Hispanic, 5'6", and 165 pounds.

Astoria is going to hell in a handbasket - BTW, where is Mr Public Safety - oh thats right, making the circuit applying pressure to get his upzoning passed.

There are 'priorities' and then there are the really important things that have to get done... you know, the ones that actually take up one's time.

He needs to be hung from the elevated station and then hit like a pinata until he dies.

do you mean the 31st avenue stop? Because there is no stop named 31st street...

Tooms said...

dammit, typo...30th avenue. All the stops in astoria are on 31st street, but none named 31st street.

Who cares about some silly rapist? I heard a new Thai restaurant and a new hookah bar are opening in Astoria this weekend! VIBRANT! DIVERSE!

While there are plenty of reasons an anti-development community could say "Astoria is going to hell in a handbasket," I wouldn't say one attempted rape at 4 AM is a valid cause.

This is New York City. It is dangerous for a woman to walk alone at such an hour anywhere in the city, let alone the country.

Let's use this post as a reminder to stay vigilant and to perhaps try to find this perp (though the picture is a bit low res and grainy) instead of making sensationalized statements about a relatively safe neighborhood.

hahahahahahohohohohohehehehehe

Astorians.com strikes again (or should we say stikes out again)

Actually their traffic is down badly cause everyone is coming over to Queens Crap.

You have to be really stupid if you think you can stop a community (or worse censor it) from posting on its own blog.

I remember when a rapist would have had the fear of God put into him to touch a woman in Astoria. Car break ins and the like, yes. Touching a woman or child? No.

Growing up I used to say (in reference to the Greek and Italian mafias) two mafias--no waiting.

How is it that the oldtime wiseguys could keep this element out, but the police cannot.

Time for the hedgeclippers and the baseball bats.

Maspeth Mom says.

We have had 4 muggings/robberies in Maspeth in a 10 block area.

The perp wears a red knit cap with a white logo, black NorthFace jacket and a bag around his waist. (street lingo=colostomy bag). My kid has glimpsed him twice on the street. But the cops cant find him. Cause they dont give a crap.
So vigilantism is not a bad thing.

Its not that the cops won't do anything,they can't Thankk kelly and bberg for hiring cunts and runts and people who barely speak english.You also mustals remember that only Manhattan precincts are fully staffed.The outer boroughs don't count.

A rapist is stalking Astoria, and the fools at Astorians.com are outraged about Christmas music on Steinway Street.

No surpise.

The fools at astorians.com are argueing if someone should call vallone's office or not to confirm that he is posting. Some say that if it is an imposter or not, they should not get involved.

(Although with casual indifference and in true clubhouse fashion, if someone posting in their little playpen does not sing their script they think nothing of taking action to boot them off the site)--

Finally, as its classic for those mods on astorians.com, they change the subject away from something unpleasant (which hurts real estate development or makes the local politicans look bad - except for gay bashing Onorato.)

So the thread drifts away from it purpose, a talk about a tounge in cheek "Amber Alert" issued for missing (Mr Public Safety) "Little Peta" Vallone, JR.

He, we can drift from the topic of the thread, too!

Look at the next thread -

About a fire started by "an older person who had the means to move to an assisted living facility, as she should've, but would not."

http://www.astorians.com/community/index.php?topic=16915.0

This from a site that never, never, never talks about block busting 15 story senior warehouses in the backyards of 3 story blocks.

Gotta clear those rent stablized apartments!

Astoria has become a disgrace and a laughing stock and I say this with great sorrow as a 50 year resident and grandchild of people who lived and died here.

When next a wall is dropped by a maniac builder onto the house of a poor person as was done to the luckless Astoria Boulevard family whose story was covered by no paper may it drop right on top of the crooks responsible and may they die slowly.

When the next rapist touches a woman or a child, may a few more bricks fall on them as well.

To previous poster - any info and photos that you can send ol Crappy?

For the rest of you, any time this happens, send stuff like this to Crappy! Perhaps they would like to contrast your ignored storyline with the latest crap crowed by the local press.

For the mods at Astorians.com - lets hear more about hookah bars, taco trucks, that damn Christmas music on Steinway, and the poor mistreated gays (as opposed to the mistreated homeowners and taxpayers who are abused by politicans and developers)

.... and you call yourselves 'astorians.'

Indeed!
