                New York – Rocked by eight violent muggings in recent days of Asian residents of New York’s predominately Spanish Harlem, calls for better police protection are being sounded.

                Witnesses report a single male has been seen following Asian people entering local housing projects, board elevators where the attacks take place. After brutally beating the victims, mostly women, the thug then robs them. 

                A rally over the weekend led by City Council member Melissa Mark-Viverito called for greater

local awareness of the threat. She asked residents to pass out wanted posters of the suspect and thanked the NYPD for putting more Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking officers in El Barrio/East Harlem. 

                “If we remain vigilant, this criminal will be caught, and caught quickly,” said Ms. Mark-Viverito.
