On Thursday May 12 at 9:30pm a man was mugged on Hutton St near Summit Ave only a block away from the North District police station. Two individuals beat him severely, knocking him unconscious and fracturing his eye socket. There were no witnesses to the incident, they were wearing hoodies that obscured their faces and security footage is not very clear. This was a quick, vicious attack. Please take appropriate precautions if you are out after dark and please be on alert at all times.
Update: In addition to the assault, there was also a robbery that took place, which may have been the motive for the crime. There was a person who called 911 stating she heard a loud noise, looked out her window and just seconds after the assault, saw two males in hoodies/dark clothing running West on Hutton Street. Another man was robbed of his wallet and black nylon shoulder bag. The incident was captured on video cameras mounted on the 2nd floor exterior facade of 130 Hutton. As of this date, there is no police investigation into this matter that we are aware of.
If anyone else witnessed these incidents or has video of the Hutton Street area from 9:15pm – 9:30pm on Thursday, May 12th, please contact the police at 201.547.5477.
