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.

More to come later…
