This is the latest assault on a woman over 50 in New York City.

On July 2, a 76-year-old woman was seriously injured when she was knocked to the ground in Brooklyn by a man walking a dog.

After that incident, a 70-year-old woman was attacked in the head while on her way to a doctor’s appointment in the East Village on July 9.

A few days later, a man was caught on July 15 surveillance video punching a 60-year-old woman in the back of the Grand Central subway station.

On Saturday, a 58-year-old woman suffered a serious brain injury after being dragged down the stairs by a robber at a Manhattan subway station.

With the rise in violent crime, many New Yorkers fear that the city is harking back to the dark days of the 1970s and 1980s when it was nicknamed the “Fear City.”

In the 1970s, the city was in debt of $10 billion and cut its police and other services.

Data from the NYPD shows that the number of shootings rose 28.9 percent in 2021 compared to last year’s July 11, the most recent data. In 2021 there were 803 shooting incidents compared to 623 in 2020.

The number of shooting victims has increased by a staggering 22.2 percent year over year, with 931 people becoming victims of gun crime, compared to 623 around this time last year.

The homicide rate has also risen from 215 to 225 over the same period – a 4.7 percent increase.

Rape is up 7.3 percent and other sex crimes by 25.9 percent.

The biggest jump in crime rates is for hate crime, which is up 118.2 percent over the past year. This data comes amid countless indiscriminate attacks on Asian Americans in the city in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eric Adams, the ex-cop who is the Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, warned last Wednesday that “no one will come back” if the violence, especially gun violence in the Big Apple, continues.

The Brooklyn borough president appeared at an event with Governor Andrew Cuomo last week as the two political leaders formed a united front in tackling the worrying rising crime rate.

“No one will return to our multi-billion dollar tourism industry if three-year-olds get shot in Times Square,” Adams said.

Adams, 60, won the Democratic primary for this year’s mayoral race and will become New York City’s mayor if he defeats Republican Curtis Sliwa in the general election.

He tore New York judges and reform laws on bail for not doing their part to fight rising crime rates.

He also said judges are not using tools they do have at their disposal, such as Kendra’s law, which allows courts to impose mental health treatment in some cases.

“Our judges don’t bail in cases where they’re allowed to bail. They refuse to use Kendra’s law for mental health issues,” Adams said.

“We threw our hands in the air, and we surrendered our city. It’s time for us to make sure our city is for the working class, ordinary people who follow the laws and say the government will make sure we protect them.”

Cuomo admitted in May that New York City is now in the throes of a “big problem.”

“New Yorkers don’t feel safe and they don’t feel safe because crime rates are rising,” he said.

“It’s not that they’re neurotic or overly sensitive — they’re right.”
