• NYC: 23 ‘Random’ Stabbings in 5 Months

    Not just in Crown Heights: Two dozen seemingly random slashings since November have residents of NYC on edge • Full Story

    New York Post

    Two dozen seemingly random slashings since November have residents of NYC on edge.

    “It’s not the crime statistics that are causing the fear, it’s the perception of being attacked by a razor blade or a knife,” said Joseph Giacalone, a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and a retired NYPD detective.

    Cops are battling an 18 percent spike in knife assaults this year, and police sources and criminologists are blaming copycats, gang initiations and hordes of mentally ill homeless people.

    “Unfortunately for the NYPD, there is no rhyme or reason to many of these slashings or attacks,” Giacalone said.

    The medley of victims includes a 71-year-old grandma riding a D train, a 16-year-old Chinese exchange student walking to school in Queens, and a 30-year-old bus commuter in Brooklyn.

    Giacalone said that cops had better be ready because “opening day for crime is Easter Sunday.”

    Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has called the wave of slashings an “aberration,” and an NYPD spokeswoman said most “are related to disputes or other adverse encounters,” but declined to discuss specifics.
