It seems like there is a crime spree in Prospect Park. A man was beaten and robbed during daylight, near Kate Wollman Rink, and just yesterday, two men were arrested, suspected of two separate attacks with box cutters, again during daylight, near Grandy Army Plaza and then at Montgomery and 8th Avenue. This comes after earlier attacks (one while a woman was running, the other an attempted rape). There were talks of reducing the number of patrols at the Park but as Jose Vega tells the Daily News, "I still feel like it's not secure enough because there's crazy people out there making bad things. People don't want to come back to the park to enjoy themselves. I feel the same way, too."
