From the TA Facebook. Thomas:
"This evening, at about 10:15 pm, I was walking through the Oval from
14th Street to 20th Street. I observed three young men, obviously
drunk, harassing a young woman who was walking in front of them. One of
the men made a sexually aggressive comment to her, and she quickly
hurried away. I can only imagine how frightened she must have been.
"I confronted the men and told them that that behavior was not
appropriate. They became belligerent, defended their indefensible behavior, and started to verbally harass me.
"I then saw a public security officer patrolling and told him what I had
just witnessed. He basically dismissed me, and then actually passed by
the three men, and did absolutely nothing. Yup - nothing.
am so disappointed that, in this era of increasingly-common sexual
assaults, including some here in Stuy Town, that the officer apparently
had no problem with what I had just reported. He was completely
uninterested in what I had told him, and didn't even stop to take any
report. He mumbled something and kept walking. Shameful."
There could be another view, but...
