A BHB tipster sent us this dispatch last night claiming:
Someone threw a brick at a guy walking down the street around 8pm. He was waiting for his friend to come and pick him up and I guess they had just spotted each other when he got hit. Just as he was turning the corner to walk down Joralemon (in the direction of the BQE ) someone drove by on Hicks and tossed the brick. I heard yelling so I went to the window to see what was going on. The guy was sitting on the sidewalk holding his head — there was a lot of blood so I think that he was hurt pretty badly. Three cop cruisers and an ambulance came. As far as I could tell they could not locate the brick and they all left within 20 minutes.
It’s terrifying to think that this could be a random crime in Brooklyn Heights! And on a Sunday evening.
