Another pee-related assault, this time in Greenwich Village

BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Yet another person has been wounded in a public urination-involved attack, police said.

According to cops, on Wed., Feb. 14, around 4:12 p.m., a 27-year-old man was standing in front of 63 Downing St. when he spotted a stranger “live streaming,” so to speak, in front of the building. A brief dispute ensued, during which the two had words with each other. The pissed-off perp then stabbed the victim once in the right side of his stomach with an unknown sharp object.

The dangerous dribbler fled on foot southbound down Varick Street.

E.M.S. medics responded to the scene and transported the victim by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital for further evaluation.

The suspect, described as having a slim build, was last seen wearing a dark blue vest over a black hooded sweatshirt, plus gray pants and brown boots.

Last month, on the other side of town, the caretaker at Immaculate Conception Church, on E. 14th Street near First Avenue, was viciously slashed across the side of his neck after telling a man to quit relieving himself on a parked car outside and also on the church itself. The worker needed 16 stitches at Beth Israel Hospital to close the serious gash.

“I had to defend myself and the church,” John Mach, 54, said, recounting the bloody incident.

Police ask that anyone with information on either incident call the N.Y.P.D.’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Tips can also be submitted on the Crime Stoppers Web site,, or on Twitter at @NYPDTips.

    Once upon a time, police officers walked the beat in New York to *deter* and prevent people from urinating, panhandling, and attacking other people. Now they just sit in their Explorers all day unable to run for 5 minutes.
