[BREAKING]: Police Arrest Sexual Abuse Suspect in Sunset Park

Three police sketches have been released regarding the BK attacker

Early this morning the NYPD arrested a man in Sunset Park, who may or may not be linked to the string of sexual attacks around Brooklyn since March. 22 year-old Federico Chamorro Yax is facing charges of assault, sexual abuse and forcible touching after two recent incidents. Police say that this past Sunday Yax crept up behind a young woman on 56th street and grabbed and fondled her, but the woman struggled and scratched the man, who then fled (I reserve one "You Go Girl" fist pump per year - and I'm using it NOW). 

Police allege that early this morning Yax approached another woman on 65th street and stuck his hand up her skirt. Yax himself lives on 65th street. He's currently in police custody, but no further news has been released on whether this D-bag is believed to be responsible for more attacks. We'll keep you posted!

Want to See Park Slope Apartments from the 1970's? 

 

Everett & Evelyn Ortuer home. 272 Berkeley Pl., Park Slope, Brooklyn. March 4, 1978. (1978)

In the late 70's photographer Dinanda Nooney snapped over 2,000 pictures of Brooklyn apartments and the folks who lived inside 'em. The above photo came from 272 Berkeley between 8th Ave and Plaza Street West (side note: the gentleman in the photo kind of reminds me of Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World). 

You can peep all of the Park Slope pads here, and see the full Brooklyn collection HURR.

We give a shit: The Prospect Park Litter Mob

Photos by Marie Viljoen

Empty beer and liquor bottles. Used condoms and their wrappers. Drained containers of lube. Plastic bags. Discarded dildos. Crushed cigarette boxes. A gold belt. A T-shirt. Some paper towels. Gum wrappers. Just a few of the things you’ll find scattered among the leaves and trees of Prospect Park.

It’s not usually out in the open, of course. This isn’t the type of stuff you’d see on the Great Lawn, or by the Picnic House. But spend some time hiking through the woods, and you’ll spot them. Over broken fences. Down by the lake. In the seemingly untouched areas of the forest.  One man’s treasure is a place for another man’s trash.

WHO GIVES A SHIT: Does Your Dog Walk Like A Complete Asshole?

Cause Oliver T-O-T-A-L-L-Y does.

Now look: I know that this is mostly my fault cause I just let him do it, but my dog obsesively zigzags up and down the street like it's his job. I've drawn a diagram of a typical walk down our block, and I swear to you: this is not even remotely an exaggeration.

Italian Newspaper Reports Park Slope's Frustration With NYPD in BK Attacks

Well well well. Seems that a newspaper way over in Italy has picked up on reports that the NYPD is behaving in less than admirable ways toward Brooklyn women in response to the sexual attacks (to re-cap, one cop recently told a girl, "Your shorts are pretty short. Kind of showing some skin. Do you think that might make this guy angry, think he can get easy access?")
