Notice to all Residents of Cathedral Gardens and 601 West 110th
I want you to be aware of an incident that occurred this morning shortly before 6:00AM. Oscar Sevilla, Assistant Superintendent at Cathedral Gardens, was attacked on West 110th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam, by more than one assailant in an apparent robbery. He sustained a serious stab wound to the back and is currently in St. Luke’s; it is my understanding that he is expected to make a full recovery.
Further details are not available at this time. Both Barnard Security and the NYPD are investigating further. We will share additional information as it becomes known to us. In the meantime, as a precaution, Barnard Security is increasing its regular patrols of the area.
We want to remind you to be alert and use appropriate caution when you move about at times when few people are out.
