Just a head's up, and a call for information if you have any.
A friend of mine got attacked on North 10th on Sunday morning, somewhere between 5-5:30. He was walking alone between Berry and Wythe, close to McCarren Park.
He doesn't remember what happened because of a bad concussion, but he was hit in the head with a blunt object. Bruises/abrasions seem to indicate that he was grabbed, and fell down on his face and side.
He was coming out of a gay bar in the area that was just closing (but he had only drunk two beers that day, and much earlier in the night). The police are helpful but somewhat difficult, and don't think they'll have any leads. Certainly respond if you think you have any information or know of any similar attacks, but otherwise just be on the lookout for violence in the area.
