I’m sorry about this awful experience, just can’t imagine what it must have felt to be ambushed and attacked ?
To think that when I lived in Forest Hills I used to go there all the time, although not past dark but yes as early as 05:30 during the Summer, never have I seen anything suspicious nor felt unsafe.
I hope they catch this poor excuse of a man.
