Mugging in Hoboken!
“Hoboken 411! Please report this to everyone. My girlfriend’s roommate’s boyfriend (6’2” built white male) was walking home Monday night after the Mets game around 1:30am from the PATH when he was jumped by four black men, punched directly in the face and had his wallet stolen.
He was staying with my gf’s roommate on 2nd and Grand and as I understand, he was walking down 2nd when he got jumped. This scared the sh*t out of all of our friends, seeing how we all live right in the downtown area. I have never felt so unsafe before. We all feel violated.
He called the cops immediately after and they dropped him off at my gf’s apartment on 2nd and Grand. Did you hear this on the police scanner that night? (411: nope, missed it.) Is this the same group of thugs that mugged the couple by 4th/5th a few months ago? This is ridiculous! We are all going to start carrying pepper spray and air horns now.
Oh and by the way, before they emerged and jumped him, they caught his attention by yelling “Hey Whitey!” Charming.”
