October 23, 2013- DNAinfo is reporting that a 50-year old homeless man stabbed a man at 212 North End Avenue, which is the front entrance to Asphalt Green and a high-rent apartment building. However, no one at Asphalt Green was even aware that the crime took place.
The article states, “A man was stabbed four times with a pair of scissors as he walked through Battery Park City at 3:45 a.m. last week, police said. The 33-year-old Staten Island man was jabbed in his back, chest and both arms after encountering a homeless man near 212 North End Ave. last Thursday, according to police reports. The cuts were deep, but not life-threatening, police said.”
The homeless man could have been coming from Teadrop Park across the street. Increases in crime have been a topic of discussion and a new PEP office was opened nearby. However, the auxiliary PEP office on North End Avenue closes at 7:00 PM.
