Another reader shares an incident on Wallach Place Tuesday night:
“Sharing the unfortunate news that a young woman was violently mugged by two assailants on our street this evening between 6:14-6:20pm in front of the 1300 block of Wallach Place.
A passerby disrupted the attack and the men fled. (I heard the woman scream and saw one man flee from my upstairs window.)
Luckily, the young woman came away unharmed though she was understandably shaken up. She said that one man tried to choke her while the other grabbed her bag. They were not successful in taking her possessions.
The police are interested in any residents who may have camera footage (Ring, Nest, etc.) of the assailants.
The time of the attack was between 6:14-6:20pm. However, our neighbor said that the assailants were following her eastward from Madewell before the attack.“
