Robbery – Church Square Park

Someone was robbed at Church Square Park. Not sure if it was at gunpoint or knifepoint. Black male, white baseball cap on backwards. With two other males and a female. Heading westbound on 5th St. The victim is apparently a little drunk and not making sense to officers. It seems his cell phone was taken.

Don’t these crooks and criminals know that stealing a cell phone usually gets you caught?

no way, that’s smart of you. my girlfriends and i always text eachother once we get home (cab or not) so we know that we are all safe.

Excellent point.

Hell, I was probably in the park walking my dog within 5 minutes of that robbery taking place and I never would have known about it except for this site.

My wife used to accuse me of raging paranoia because I insisted that she call me before she left work at Arthur’s at the end of the night, despite the fact that we’re all of two blocks away.

the town is not all that safe. i don’t walk home unless i’m right around the block. i take a cab, always cause this stuff happens more then people realize. think about this – would you even know about this robbery if not for this site?

Lady–yikes, I obviously know even fewer people than you do.

I’m just amazed at how vulnerable people allow themselves to become, all in the name of “having a good time.” This ain’t the south Bronx, but it’s a city nonetheless and has its fair share of crime. Stories like this are one of the many reasons I’m probably moving back to Bergen County in a couple of months.

Judging by the physical condition some of the force is in, they could stand to do a couple of laps around the city each shift.

In a city this size, with a traffic problem this bad, I’m not sure what use it is the have 3/4 of your officers patrol in cruisers all day. Then again, I’m not the brains behind that operation (thankfully).
