Want you to hear the good news before the bad. Captain Hennessy, 108th Precinct, said they just made an arrest for GLA (stolen car) on Garfield Avenue at 69th Street! Kudos to the 108th!!
Here's the bad news. Captain Manson, 104th Precinct, called to say that at 3:30 am this morning, 7/29, at 69th Street/Grand Avenue, a female Hispanic was robbed by a male white, about 25 years old, 5'9" tall. He punched her in the face, stole her cell phone and purse and fled. After removing the cash from her purse, he dropped it.
Please be aware of your surroundings. This can happen at any time, anywhere. Don't carry anything important that you don't need. And please, keep your cell phones out of sight!
