Is there a way to crowdfund a larger reward? I'd like to think our neighborhood would pull together to get this POS off the streets...
6th Street has seen some extreme violence in the 10 years I've lived here.
Statistically it must happen.
While the EV Slasher is on the loose I would recommend that everyone avoid walking down sidestreets unless there are other people around. The pattern of all of the slashers is to attack isolated victims and then quickly run away. If you were near other people they are less likely to attack. Strength in numbers.
6th between 2nd and 3rd has always been a low traffic area as there are no restaurants and only a few shops closer to 3rd. These are the types of streets you need to be vigilant on.
As vigilant as one is, any of us are susceptible to this kind of attack. These people sneak up from the side or behind and cut and run.
