  • 6:50 AM on a Tuesday? Jesus Christ. Thoughts are with the victim for a speedy physical and mental recovery.

  • This type of thing scares the crap out of me. That’s the time I leave for work in the morning, and it’s light out already!
    Sending prayers to the victim. I really hope that she is physically okay, and that she will have a strong support system to get through this.

  • This occurred in Ward 1, which is represented by Councilmember Brianne Nadeau.

    She needs to be aware that these things are happening to her constituents.

  • Usually I’m able to brush off reports of crimes in my immediate area, since it’s typically just carjacking, nonviolent mugging, etc. But this is pretty terrifying. So close me and this is the time I walk to work. I’m keeping the woman in my thoughts and hope they catch the criminal!
    There have been other problems with the 1400 block in this area, shootings and drug use on V/W street for example. Almost wonder if it’s related.

  • Hey all – just to give an update, the guy was arrested. Supposedly he chased a jogger and victimized her in the alley. Very disturbing. Glad the police were able to catch him quickly and put him behind bars. Props to the cops.
