Spate of crime in LIC
It has come to liQcity’s attention through multiple local tipsters that there’s been a bunch of recent muggings in the Hunters Point area, especially near the waterfront, that have apparently gone unreported through the local police. The buzz is:
* A woman was mugged on Friday evening around 11pm at 47th Rd & Vernon Blvd. She was struck from behind and robbed of her possessions, including her coat. She was also denied the ability to file a police report with the 108th precinct, since she did not have ID on her. (direct from woman attacked)
Makes sense. There are other unreported crimes detailed if you click the link. I thought it was safe there now because it was gentrified. Or that's the bill of goods we've been sold by the real estate industry, anyway.
