Hoboken crime and fire action: May 5, 2011

  • 4:25am (5/6/2011): Disorderly Drunk
    HPD en route to handle a “disorderly drunk” at the intersection of 13th & Park. Maybe he’s mad this location has been vacant for years?

    Reports of a street fight at 6th & Bloomfield Streets.
  • 2:15am (5/6/2011): Attempted carjacking
    A visitor to Hoboken almost had his car stolen right from him, as an alleged carjacker attempted to gain control of his vehicle near 2nd & Jefferson. Car wasn’t stolen luckily.
  • 1:10am (5/6/2011): Fight spills onto street
    The previous fight is now a “large fight” at 3rd & Washington – and backup is being requested. Due to HPD being short-staffed – they have no backup – and will have to call out of town for assistance.
    1:15am Update: Three arrests. One female. Situation cleared.
  • 1:00am (5/6/2011): Club Assault
    Reports of an assault at the “200 Lounge” (above Tutta Pasta.)
  • 11:10pm: Hit & Run accident
    Another hit & run car accident – 3rd & Washington. A 2007 green Ford Edge WEP-42S struck another car and fled northbound. You will be caught dude!

More updates to come…

Wow! A lot happened for a Thursday. Lots of people got wasted for Cinco De Mayo I guess.

I dont know how much worse its gotten. I remember when Cadilac bar was arround. Power hour. There were at least a few fights a night there. Its always been that way, with a town with a high nightlife area there are bound to be incidents.

Dont see how Police can nip it in the bud. Two people leave a bar and start fighting, cops are called they come break it up and arrest them. Just as what seemed to happen here. What more can they do. To me this sounds like they did a great job and is a non issue.

And the understaffed and thats why they asked for back uop seems to be an opinion and not a fact, but I could be wrong.

Is it me or does anyone else notice that the People visiting Hoboken to Drink are getting more violent and more violent??? What exactly is in the drinks they are serving?Wait, where are the POLICE to nip this in the butt and deter these people? It’s not like this is anything new, maybe the Mayor needs to reevaluate security….

Why are there so many pedestrians being struck by cars in Hoboken? The city needs to put some Walk/Don’t Walk lights at major intersections, like they have all over NYC. Maybe that’ll help. Or maybe NJ drivers don’t know how to stop at intersections??
