The Brooklyn Eagle confirms that a brick thrower was apprehended by police this morning atop the St. George Hotel.
We will link to the Eagle's coverage when it is published online later today.
The Eagle is now reporting that a Pace University student identified only as "Jason" was responsible for the brick tossing morning of terror on Henry Street:
Brooklyn Eagle: Student Nabbed…: Alec Drummond, who was at the scene when the incident occurred at around 9 a.m., said the young man had thrown two or three cinder blocks into Henry Street. Drummond directed people walking on the sidewalk to cross the street or stand under the awning of the lobby entrance to the No. 2 and 3 train’s Clark Street train station.
“I think he was just trying to hit cars,” said Drummond, pointing to a young, brown-haired man still peering over the edge of the St. George, even after police and firemen arrived. Smashed cinder blocks.
A police source added, “It was an act of vandalism, not hurting people.”
