Last night, we received this email from a FiPS reader who rehashed a pretty scary incident that his friend went through the other night:
My roommate came home last night in a panic after a white man in his 40's tried to grab her on 20th st and Prospect Park West. She was coming home from her boyfriend's house when the man, on a bike going the opposite direction and wearing a reflector vest, starting cat calling her and getting closer to her on the bike. Eventually, he tried to swipe at her, and she ran, while he quickly pedaled away. She ended up going into a bodega in the area, where luckily some dudes part of a neighborhood watch in the area were able to help her file a report over the phone with the police.
Anyway, stay safe. And keep a lookout for a crazy white guy on a bike, wearing a helmet and a reflector vest, in his 40's (or 30's but with a really bad drug problem).
Glad to hear she filed a police report. Stay vigilant, ppl!
