Written by

Public Safety issued a Security Alert an hour ago that a student was assaulted last night at 119th and Morningside. Three males, described as “18-20” and black, attacked the student from behind, and ran off after he resisted. The trio apparently committed another crime later in Morningside Park. Full description after the jump.


On August 2, 2009 at about 8:40 p.m., a student was assaulted at W. 119 St. and Morningside Drive.  The student was walking, when he was approached from behind by three males, who punched him in the back of the head.  The student resisted, and the suspects fled south on Morningside Drive.  The descriptions are as follows:

#1- m/b/18-20 yrs/5?10?-6?/thin build/red t-shirt, red baseball cap, light colored shorts.

#2- m/b/18-20 yrs/5?10?-6?/thin build/dark t-shirt, dark baseball cap, blue jeans, sneakers.

#3- m/b/18-20 yrs/6?1?/ thin build/blue jeans/white t-shirt/light colored baseball cap.

It is believed that the suspects are also responsible for another crime within Morningside Park, a short time later.  If you have any information about these suspects, please contact Det. Signoretti at the 26 Pct. Detective Squad. Tel # 212-678-1318.

    Seriously though, this is going to lead to more racist bullcrap followed by ridiculous over liberal bullcrap. Both sides look dumb and are wrong.
