    This is the first I have learned of these attacks which for some reason took 10 days for CBS to pick up and share the story??? Why?

  • Glad that this was posted on Everyblock. Wish there was a better description of who to look out for.

  • If you are on Facebook, consider joining the pages for Irving Park Neighbors and Irving Park Crime watch. The victim in this incident posted about it immediately after it happened, including a description of the attacker.
