missdiane: (HP Ginny is SHOCKED)
There's a more detailed description of the jackass that assaulted the woman around the corner from where I live. The guy better be long gone because the police in HP are good as well as it's a tight community of people that will be watching. I'm still nervous though since he nabbed the woman in a well populated area in daylight. I'm wondering whether it would be worth getting something like pepper spray or whether that would be more of a problem. Hm.

Anyway, then some excitement this morning. I walk into the building at work to a very weird smell which got stronger the closer I got to our suite of offices. Evidently one of the ballasts on the lights was smouldering and about to start a fire. Before I arrived a bit before 8am, four fire trucks had already been here and gone and we're waiting for the useless Rutgers facilities folks to come check it out whenever they get around to it now.

The really scary thing? I was the last to leave the office last night. If I had left the lights on, there's a high chance that our building would've burned last night since right below those lights are shelves with books - some over 140 years old. What we think happened is that the cleaning lady got in to start her job between 5-6am and when she came into our suite to collect trash, she left the lights on since we come in not long after that. 

Hoolleeee crap.

The Rutgers University Police Department is investigating a robbery which
was reported to have occurred on April 20, 2015 at the intersection of
Road One and Cedar Lane in Edison Township at approximately 7:30 PM.

In this incident the victim, who is affiliated, reported walking near the
intersection of Road One and Cedar Lane when she was approached by two
juvenile females who pushed her and then sprayed her with mace. One of the
perpetrators then removed the victim's cell phone from her pocket before
they both fled down Road One towards Road Three. The victim was
transported to a local area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Holy CRAP, you know I can almost (but not quite) see that corner from my dining room window? At that time I was playing with the kitties before dinner. This is certainly one more reason to get the HELL out of this neighborhood.

Oh and slight picky thing - unless she was further down after the sidewalk ends, it's technically either Highland Park or Piscataway, not Edison. Not that it makes it any effect on the crime itself but HP needs to recognize problems over here.
