And now, a break from our usual indie music musings and breaking brunch news to share some more serious info:
Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman around 4:20AM the night of New Year’s Eve on Maspeth Avenue (near the Graham Avenue L).
The woman was walking alone in the early morning hours when a man grabbed her and pulled her into a parking garage adjacent to a modern condo building. He indicated he had a gun, told the woman to stay quiet, and sexually assaulted her before fleeing the scene.
Cops say they’re looking for a man 20-25 years old, about 5’8” and 150 pounds, wearing a gray hoodie and a dark baseball hat. (What’s that, you say? That could fit the description of almost any guy you see on the street? Yeah, us too.)
If you have any information, please call CrimeStoppers: (800) 577-TIPS, or submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting CRIMES (274637) then entering TIP577.
And in the meantime, please, let’s all stay extra-vigilant on our late-night walks home.
