    Don’t you just love men who think they can take liberties with ladies? These are the types of men who wonder why they can’t find a wife and think that all women are against them and turn them down for superficial reasons.

    OHMYYY. And this is why one should always carry pepper spray when walking in CH! I’m sorry, but the area, just isn’t safe. It’s illegal in NY so it would have to be concealed.
    I hope this pathetic excuse for a human gets caught!

    Can’t imagine why she would refuse the advances of a creep who looks like that.

    how do secular world non-Jewish men(?, or babies!) get the idea that they own women and can do or say anything they want when they want and women have to feel complimented and happy for their perverted “attention”, that this is the only way(well, along with beating each other up) they can be a “man”??!! These pathetic think they own the world just because they can breathe and strut down the street like turkeys

    There seems to be a common denominator of just about all violent crimes committed in Crown Heights reported on this website. Anyone care to guess. Hint: the perps are not Chasidim or hipsters…

    Don’t carry pepper spray and worry about legalities. Carry a bottle of Easy Off oven cleanser. That’s legal and will burn anyone’s eyes a lot faster and more seriously. Oh, again, it’s legal to carry it in a bag!!
