In totally shitty, not funny at all news, NY1 reported that a 67-year-old Long Island man was robbed and killed on 18th Street in Park Slope last night around 7:30pm. A FIPS tipster who lives nearby heard a woman screaming for help at that same time and wrote in wondering what the heck was up.
Sources say the victim, a travel agent names Jesus Morales, came to Park Slope to buy a car. He died from a severe head injury.
According to the official police report:
A witness was interviewed who provided the description of the perpetrator running from the scene. A second female witness stated that after hearing a thump, she turned and observed a male wearing all black with a black mask leaning over the victim and searching through the victims pockets while he lay on the ground. She added that the male looked at her asked her to stay away. She then crossed over to the south side of 18th street before observing the perpetrator running eastbound toward 6th Ave.
Yikes all around.
