Mayoral Candidate Curtis Sliwa & Filipino Guardian Angels @ The Philippine Consulate
TODAY, 11 AM
Recent Nurse Attack & EDP, Drug, Homeless Crisis
556 5th Ave, NYC
NEW YORK CITY: Mayoral Candidate Curtis Sliwa and Filipino Guardian Angles will hold a press conference at the Consulate General of the Philippines on Sunday at 11 AM.
The cancer nurse knocked down by a deranged homeless mugger in Times Square died Saturday evening after clinging to life for a day and a half.
“Crime has been rampant in this City,” Curtis Sliwa said. “Why are the mentally ill on the streets? They need care.”
Ambrocio, 58, walked through Times Square around 1:30 p.m. Friday with friends after accompanying a pal to the Philippine Consulate in Midtown.
It was the same time that cops say Jermaine Foster allegedly went on a crime spree, grabbing a cell phone out of a 29-year-old woman’s hands at West 41st Street and Broadway and then slamming into Ambrocio as he fled. She was rushed to Bellevue and later died from her injuries.
“The crisis involving the emotionally disturbed, drugs and homelessness is not being addressed,” Sliwa said.
Curtis Sliwa and the Guardian Angels will deliver a letter of condolence and apology to the Philippine Consulate.
Sliwa promises that as mayor he will not allow these crimes to continue. Emotionally disturbed persons will be hospitalized and will receive proper care, so they will no longer be a danger to themselves and to others.
