Police have launched a hate crime investigation, following a broad daylight attack on a gay couple this past weekend on busy Eighth Avenue just steps from Madison Square Garden.
Police on Monday said a man used the tactics of a bank robber to hold up not only an actual bank, but also stores and restaurants, from Midtown to the Financial District during one day last week.
Police this weekend were asking for help from the public in finding a man who held up a bank in Murray Hill.
Police say the suspect, described as 6-foot-5 and about 300 pounds, tried to speak with the woman, then grabbed her arm, threw her on the ground a tried to rape her.
The presence of Macy’s loading dock, scaffolding, the lack of natural light and little street life were the determining factors in the Municipal Art Society’s designation for the block.
