Reader report: A mugging on East 9th Street this evening
The above flyer is hanging at 233 E. Ninth St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
Per the flyer, a delivery woman was attacked in the building's vestibule this evening around 7. One resident told us that the suspect reeked of urine, "and it filled the building with the smell."
Earlier today, an EVG reader passed along word of a mugging last evening outside a building on East 10th Street between Avenue B and Avenue C. There were few details from a resident, who said that a woman entering the building had her mink coat stolen by a man brandishing a 6-inch knife and brass knuckles. (There was a general description of the suspect via the resident: Black male, 5-8, medium build with a youthful appearance "but was probably in his 40s.")
