I am not a member of the Bococa Parents Yahoo Group, since my bambinis are all grown up, but a friend who belongs just forwarded me the posting below in order to let others in the neighborhood know. It seems as though a few kids are having a bit too much fun in the snow. A group of young rowdies have harassed passers-by with snowballs and chunks of ice, prompting one young mother to file a police report. Read on:
Coming home today at 5:30PM a pack of 10 young boys attacked me on Dean between Hoyt and Bond. I am 3 months pregnant and told them that. They continued. Pushing me, throwing huge chunks of ice and snow balls at me.
Please look out for young rowdy boys throwing snowballs and yelling at people and stop and call the Police.
This is ridiculous to happen at 5:30PM on a Tuesday not to mention being pregnant.I notice these groups of rowdy teens always walking down Dean after school. I just never thought they would attack me. Please take notice of your neighbors and be on the lookout.When I got home after meeting with Police and filing a report our babysitter said a group of boys were throwing snowballs earlier on Dean...at an older lady with a cane.Please step up and look out for your neighbors if you see something.Not happy with the Boerum Hill boys thinking they can take over the sidewalks and harrass people.
Has anyone else come across them?
