Video Released of Attempted Rape
More on the incident or rather the rumored cover-up:
This doesn't pass the smell test, however:
"An NYPD spokesperson told the website that in this case, Stuyvesant Town was omitted from the department's press release 'because it’s the address of the victim of a sex crime.' The spokesman added, 'We don’t mention the address of the victim, especially the victim of a sex crime. Stuyvesant Town is in the Gramercy section of Manhattan.'"
How is mentioning Stuy Town giving the address of the victim of a sex crime? There are a lot of buildings in Stuy Town. Wouldn't being more specific than "Gramercy" be a better clue? Maybe someone saw the alleged rapist-in-training in or around Stuy Town that night.
The crucial info, however:
"Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577. "
