On Saturday evening, a mother and her daughter were viciously attacked in our community, inside a restaurant on Second Avenue near 51st Street. The attackers – two women and a man – appear to have mistaken them for a lesbians and assaulted both the mother and daughter, injuring both, before fleeing. Our community is one of tolerance where violence is not acceptable. At our next meeting on October 15, I would like to discuss this and take action to show that Tilden does not condone intolerance.
