Sexual Attack on St. Felix Prompts Press Conference


Yesterday morning shortly before 6 a.m a woman on her way to work at Brooklyn Hospital was sexually attacked on St. Felix Street between Fulton and Dekalb Avenues. Here's what was posted on the Fort Greene Kids list by someone who spoke to police on the scene:

A young female doctor was assaulted, raped and robbed at around 5:45am on her way to work at Brooklyn Hospital. The attack occurred on St Felix Street between Fulton & Dekalb. Supposedly, the attacker dragged her down a stoop and hid behind some garbage cans. As far as I know, he got away. This was a very bold sexual assault - outdoors in freezing weather in the middle of a residential block on a garbage pick up morning and around the time the NY Times delivery guy comes by.

We were able to confirm that as of last night the police had no one in custody. City Councilmember Letitia James will be holding a press conference today at 3 p.m. at the corner of Fulton and St. Felix to call for more police presence in the area and to raise awareness about safety measures.
