The police say a man was mugged and slashed in Central Park around 12:30 this morning. According to the Post, "The man, described as in his 30s and dressed up in a tuxedo, had lost his glasses and “couldn’t see properly,” according to one cop at the scene. As the man stumbled by the rink, he was jumped by a group of men who sliced him in the hand with a knife, and then stole his wallet and an iPod, the officer said. The muggers fled."

Central Park crime has fallen 12.5% since 2010, comparing year-to-date stats between 2011 and 2010 (PDF).
