A shame that our president brags about the sexual assaults he’s committed. It leads to this sort of culture.

Because sexual assaults never happened before 2016. Trump Derangement Syndrome happens again.

Only DeBlasio ( and he probably doesn’t) and Your 13 ( at this point in time)alter egos believe this. Crime is rampant , things are bad. But our local leaders celebrate losing 25,000 jobs . Simple Madness.

90% of the articles on here about crime. If you think things are good in our neighborhood you’re delusional.

The fact that there are crime stories here says more about the choices of reporters and editors than the levels of crime.

“New York City in 2018 continued to hit new lows in violence, beating the record for the fewest shootings and dropping a whisker below 2017’s low mark for homicides.”

sad!

Sure, we’ve come to expect brazen sexual assault from Trump (Access Hollywood tape) and from the people he endorses (Roy Moore) but we should never expect it in our own community.

Juanita Broaddrick called, says you need help with your Trump Derangement Syndrome. A poor girl attacked in what was once a very safe area and you bring in Trump. This is a liberal city with liberal policies. Trump has nothing to do with the sinking ship that is our neighborhood.

This poor girl was raped and Trump somehow has to be included in comments. SMH. Prayers for this young woman to heal after this tragic assault.

There was a gunpoint robbery Friday on 54th street and woodside ave around the same time of this incident. I wonder if it’s the same suspect.

This is frightening to hear! Can the Police blow the picture up you can barely see his face! By the way where are the police in our neighborhood? The most I’ve ever seen was at the rally at 46th Street last year as if we were going to riot! Oh yes and at Paris Baguette there were 4 of them relaxing at a table all on their cellphones, nice photo I have.

The striped hood is a dead giveaway. Sometimes police hold back info for a reason. I wouldn’t want to speculate in this case. My best thoughts for the victim. To the victum’s friends, parents and loved ones. Suggested reading: “What We Talk About, When We Talk About Rape.” Just published.

There is a nearby hospital?
Which hospital?

You have lost your mind with hatred of Trump. We have a mayor, DeBozo, who keeps telling us about low crime while a gang member kills another gang member at the 90th Street station and a girl is raped in our own neighborhood. Shame on you!
