A Roosevelt Island Mom reports yesterday:

...around 10:30 AM, my son and his friend had their xooter scooter stolen. They were a little passed the Roosevelt Island Tram station. They left the scooters alone for 5 minutes and when they came back, the scooters were gone. Only took 5 minutes at 10:30 AM!!!!!

One scooter was silver and thin the other older, silver and with black dots on the board

The Roosevelt Island we had 5-10 years ago is no longer here. It's now a not so safe place anymore. I guess that's my message to others.
On March 14, 2014, NYPD 114th Precinct Commander Deputy Inspector Kevin Maloney and Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Safety Director Jack McManus spoke to a Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Public Safety Committee meeting about local crime and public safety issues. Here's what they had to say.

A post last week asked is there more Roosevelt Island crime or just more public reporting of incidents?
