PLEASE KEEP ERIC AND HIS FAMILY IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS AS WE GET THROUGH THIS UNIMAGINABLE EVENT AND HE WORKS TOWARDS RECOVERY!
Last night some of my friends got held up outside of Tower Bar off of University Basically this is what happened!In a related note, there is a follow up safety meeting to discuss the recent crime issues in North Park, Uni Heights, Kensington and "Between Heights". The Meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 18 from 6:30-8pm at the Normal Heights Community Center at 4649 Hawley Blvd. Toni Atkins is hosting along with SDPD and other community members.
We parked on the side street behind the bar and when we went to drive off we had a gun pulled on us. If not for the stunt driving I don't think things would have turned out in our favor. If you go to the Tower bar never park south of University!!
My friend said that she was unable to make out the facial descriptions of the people who held them up, but it was two hispanic males driving a white truck.
This is a warning for all of us, try to watch out and be safe, it can happen anywhere!
