Oh ... and I happen to recall that a while back a woman was assaulted right on the street in broad daylight in Crescent Park by some men driving by in a truck and had her leaf-blower stolen in addition to being threatened with a knife and hurt. I wonder if this is the same perpetrator? Hope someone checks on that.
