The suspect, Mitchell Wiggins, 19, is still at large.
The violence continues in Bushwick and innocent bystanders are being targeted by gun-toting thugs.
According to The NY Post “Guillen and relatives, including cousin Juan Medina, 24, were ordering sandwiches at a deli…after a night out celebrating Medina’s last day in town. Three men began hassling them for taking too long. Guillen and her cousin are recovering at Bellevue Hospital in Brooklyn, and are expected to make a full recovery.
But the crimes are not only limited to shootings.
Police are searching for a man accused of raping a woman on the steps of the De Kalb Avenue L train station in Bushwick.
At around 3:50 a.m. on Friday, April 6, at Stanhope Street and Wyckoff Avenue, the suspect grabbed the victim, a 37-year-old woman and continued to rape her, later fleeing from the scene.
Police presence has overall sky rocketed on streets and in subway stations due to the rise in electronics thefts.Subway stations have seen a spike in thefts over the past year with electronic devices including iphones, ipads and handheld devices.
There were 5 shootings in the last two months in the Bushwick area. Although statistics say the crime rate is dropping extensively compared to earlier years, many are left wondering if enough is being done.
