At around 2:05pm today, a man was mugged near 3nd and Harrison by a short black male, wearing black jeans, black hoodie and “Timberland” style boots. A silver gun was pointed at him and was asked to fork over his money. When he told the assailant he had none, he got whacked in the head and the actor took off towards the 2nd street Light Rail station. The victim was conscious and was bleeding from the head.
Witnesses say the suspect got on the light rail heading north towards Weehawken. Hoboken police have released the suspects description on the Special Emergency Network to notify other towns. Maybe they can catch him at the next stop?
