Reasonable discourse

yukita from clinton hill says:
I was really surprised to read the crime that happened on March 3 at the corner of Hanson and South Elliott places 'cause I was just attacked by 5 black teenage girls and 2 boys at the exact same place at 3:10 just 1 week before this crime happened. They were striking and beating repeatedly in my face and tried to snatch my bag out. Fortunately, a lady with a small son who was walking after them, just saw the same attack by the same kids at the Lafayette station and shouted for them that she already called police, so all kids run away. I was lucky because they couldn't snatch anything from me and I got only some bumps on my face and head, but I've still felt scared. I'm an international student and have lived Clinton Hill since 2004 because I love this beautiful neighbor. I'm really shocked and disappointed to hear so many accidents happened by teenage kids in this site.
