Two incidents occurred in Elmhurst. See DI Leyson's information below. Also, PO Janine Rivera, Community Affairs, gave us information on an incident that occurred last night.
Please report all incidents. We won't know what's happening if people don't tell the police!! If you see something suspicious, call 911!! You will not get in trouble if you are mistaken. We are pleased to see that this incident was reported. This is a reminder to always be alert and careful.

A Female Asian woman was walking on Haspel St & 55 Ave Monday morning at 7:30 when a male Hispanic approx 25 years old walking in the opposite direction reached out and grabbed her breast and fled. As the female got to the intersection of 55 Ave and Van Horn St, the perpetrator reappeared and grabbed her breast again. This time the female screamed and the perpetrator fled.
Please tell everyone to remain alert, cross the street if you are alone and see a suspicious person coming in your direction and if anything like this happens, scream or blow a whistle (like the ones given out by COMET) to get peoples attention.

PO Rivera said that last night at 9:43 pm a call came in with regard to a female being assaulted. The Asian female, 35 years old, was found lying in front of 88-53 53rd Avenue with multiple stab wounds. She told officers at the scene that she had a verbal argument with her boyfriend, an Asian male, 37 years old. Minutes later, a male caller stated that a male, who matched the description of her boyfriend, was in an alley at Justice Avenue/53rd Avenue. When the police responded they found the boyfriend with a self-inflicted laceration to the throat. Both victims were taken to Elmhurst Hospital and are not likely to die. The boyfriend had one prior arrest for domestic violence.
