At 5:30 pm on a Brooklyn-bound F train, between the Bergen and Carroll St. stops, an African-American girl (16-18 years of age, about 5'6") nudged her way through a crowded car. She pushed against the back of a female Carroll Gardens resident (and neighbor of this blogger). The woman (5'3", Caucasian, late 30s) tried her best to make room for the youth. Unhappy with the amount of space she was given, the youth she began yelling, "I asked you to get out of my way. I will beat your ass!" The woman remained silent as the youth berated her. Then the youth swiped her fingers across the woman's face. The youth walked away but came back and hit the woman twice on the head with an open palm. She then stood at the subway doors and continued calling the woman names until the train stopped and got off at Carroll St. It happened to be the woman's stop as well, so she followed cautiously, watching the youth go into Carroll Gardens Park. The woman then proceeded to the 76th precinct on Union Street and told the desk officer of the assault. She explained that she didn't want anyone else to be assaulted in the park and requested that they send an officer there. The desk officer said they could write a report but it would take at least a half hour. The woman was upset and had to meet someone who was leaving shortly on flight, so she left.
