The 23-year-old sought publicity for his sophomoric music by wearing a hockey mask and interrupting a report on the attempted rape that happened on Norfolk Street. The situation spiraled, and ended with Kim pushed to the ground. Foster, a resident of Baruch Houses, was brought in on charges of misdemeanor assault.

As for the attempted rape story, the 7th Precinct identified the assailant as 41 year-old Robert Adams. He allegedly followed a woman to her home at 139 Norfolk Street, shoved her through the door, and groped her. Adams fled after the victim fought back.
