Hoboken crime and fire action: May 14th, 2011
An ongoing list of various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day for Saturday, May 14, 2011. This post may be updated and “bumped” periodically.
Crimes, Incidents, Fire Calls & Vehicular mishaps
- 4:35am (5/15/2011): Street Assault
Reports of an assault at 8th & Park – HPD and EMS en route. In the rain?
4:45am Update: This was a robbery as well (i.e., “mugging” for the lamen). The suspects (two or three of them) are described as white or Hispanic – possibly driving a car. They took the guy’s wallet and other personal belongings.
4:55am Update: The victim was jumped and punched by this group of thugs. They broke his nose – and the charges at the moment are aggravated assault and robbery. The victim could not give a detailed description of the actors.
- 3:50am (5/15/2011): Minor Car Accident
A taxi cab and a another car driven by a female were involved in a minor accident at Observer & Willow. However, the cab driver states that the woman is trying to drive away. Why do you think that is? (see previous update for a clue.)
- 3:10am (5/15/2011): Mother Nature Curveball
Great. Right when the bars let out – we have heavy downpours in our area. That changes the odds for “drunk driving accidents” a bit now, doesn’t it?
- 2:45am (5/15/2011): Fire Pull-Station Tripped
HFD is on scene now at 200 Lounge – as someone apparently pulled the fire alarm. Hmmm.. maybe they get ejected and wanted revenge?
- 2:25am (5/15/2011): “Man Down”
A man s reported to be “passed out drunk” in the intersection of 3rd & Grand Streets.
- 12:45am (5/15/2011): Attempted Suicide
Reports of a man at 221 Jackson Street who attempted to kill himself. HPD and Hoboken EMS en route.
1:05am Update: “Lots of blood” – as this individual apparently stabbed himself twice – once in the arm, once in the leg. En route to hospital now.

- 12:40am (5/15/2011): Forceful entry?
HPD received “multiple calls” that someone was trying to unlawfully gain entrance to an apartment at 155 14th Street. Units dispatched.
- 12:30am (5/15/2011): Black Bear “dispute”
Not your typical bar fight – apparently – a patron was upset he didn’t get his change back from the Black Bear establishment. HPD on the way – and will remind this dope that 911 is not to be used for idiotic incidents like this.
- 11:35pm: HUMC Hospital “Fire Alarms”
Reports of fire alarm activation at HUMC Hospital. This happens at least one a week, maybe more – and are false alarms each and every time. Perhaps they should start paying for each call?
11:40pm Update: Turned out to be “burnt popcorn.” Wait what, do kids from Stevens work there now?
- 11:20pm: Calgon take me away
A resident called to complain about loud music at 218 Jefferson Street.
- 11:15pm: Fake ID
A bouncer from Bahama Mama’s notified HPD indicating they had a fake ID from a person who tried to gain entry into that awesome “poppin” place.
- 10:45pm: Drunken gunplay?
HPD reported that they received a call from an allegedly drunk male in the neighborhood of 7th & Clinton stating something about a “man with a gun.” HPD arrived on scene to find nothing.
- 9:45pm: Car accident
Observer Hwy & Monroe – near Hoboken Beer & Soda Outlet. No injuries reported – but Hoboken EMS was dispatched to “check one out…”
More to come later…
