Dear PoPville,

Witnessed a mugging and possible attempted car jacking this morning about 8:15 am in the alley between Swan and S street, West of 16th street. Was taking out my garbage alley between T and Swan and heard screams and “call the police”. Looked down the alley and saw a scuffle and fight and then the assailant ran off down Swan toward New Hampshire…police were called and victim was taken to hospital to with a laceration on his arm…… assailant reportedly pulled a gun (later identified as a BB gun) and hit the victim with a brick..victim’s partner said that the assailant had asked the victim to get into the victims car after giving up his wallet, victim apparently fought of assailant at that point….
