We were notified that an assault occurred in the vicinity of PS 102 on Wednesday afternoon, 10/28.
DI Manson states that a 60+ year old Asian male was pushed to the ground from behind by another male. He was injured and hospitalized. Since the victim is 60+ years of age and was attacked by a younger person, the incident is considered a Felony Assault rather than an Assault. The attack appears to have been unprovoked and the 110th Precinct Squad is looking at the case. The attacker was described as a male black in his 50's. DI Manson said if anyone has any information about this incident, please contact the 110th Precinct Squad.
Btw, remember the forcible touching incident that occurred on Van Kleeck Street Tuesday morning? DI Manson said the victim was interviewed by the Detective Squad and has recanted her story. Apparently the male was drunk but never touched her. It is unknown as to why she said this happened in the first place.
