NYPD Helicopter Circles Clinton Street [Updated]
Who needs an alarm clock when we’ve got the NYPD chopper unit for a wake-up call? Earlier this morning we heard plenty of buzzing from the sky, and one reader provides some input:
8AM helicopter police action over Clinton between Rivington and Stanton. No idea why except to wake up the neighborhood. Helicopter circled the area then hovered over the [Straus] playground for 5 mins. Good Morning!
UPDATE: It’s an investigation into an alleged sexual assault. No one is in custody yet.
If you have more information on the operation, definitely give us a shout!
