I try not to post much petty crime here (well, unless it’s ridiculous and/or humorous), but this is really getting out of hand. I actually had to look through the archives to verify that I hadn’t used the exact same title before.
Details are scarce, but according to WRAL the victim “was attacked with a stick or rod-like object.” There’s no mention of motive, or whether the victim knew his attacker. Of particular note: this happened in the middle of the day on Saturday, normally a high traffic time for the trail.
Bell and Lopez are quick to tell us how much safer the Trail is these days, and how the ATT doesn’t deserve any special attention, but I’ve already written about how I disagree with them. It’s (still) time to fix the crime problem on the ATT.
