Kevin shares this upsetting report from this Saturday:

“I just wanted to let you know I was brutally assaulted and robbed by 2 males in between Columbia and Harvard street on Sherman. They followed me from 7-11 and attacked me from behind. I was brutally beaten for 30-45 seconds and they got away with my wallet.

I am OK, my thoughts are with our safety as a community.”
