2003_9_prospectpark.jpg This is crazy: A homeless man assaulted and tried to rape a woman near the Third Street entrance of Prospect Park yesterday at noon. A police officer patroling the area chased and arrested the man. The Post says the woman, a fashion designer, had her faced very badly bruised and cut up after the man pounded her head into the ground. Jesus. Third Street. At noon! Newsday has detailed coverage.
