Islip Woman Bound and Tied by Burglar

And Islip woman was confronted by a burglar in her home, who attacked her and tied her to a chair with duct tape. The woman, 28, told police she came into the house from the backyard and saw the burglar in the hallway, who threw her to the ground and tied her ankles and wrists, placed duct tape on her mouth and bound her to a chair. He then stole the television and other valuables. The victim was found two hours later by her mother, who called 911. No arrests have been made so far, but police have described the suspect as 6-feet-tall, 180 pounds and possibly Hispanic — and are trying to figure out if this was a targeted burglary. 

 

Nine Pre-K Sites Won’t Open This Year; 36 More Will be Delayed

After City Comptroller Scott Stringer said last week that the city had failed to submit a large number of contracts for their planned pre-kindergarten sites, a move which prevented necessary health and safety checks, it seems that some sites won’t be opening this year at all. Nine out of 1,700 pre-k facilities did not pass their examinations, and 36 others won’t be opening on time. This affects 265 children in the nine programs. As of Tuesday afternoon, according to CBS, 83 have been reenrolled. In the 36 delayed classes, 900 kids need different plans. 

 

Joan Rivers Remains on Life Support 

Native Brooklynite Joan Rivers remains on life support at Mount Sinai hospital in Manhattan, where news vans swarm the main entrance and reporters crawl the benches flanking the doors. This is five days after the famed 81-year-old comedian went into cardiac and respiratory arrest after ceasing to breathe during a procedure on her vocal chords at the Yorkville Endoscopy Center in Upper Manhattan. Doctors are currently working on bringing her out of a medically-induced coma. She will be given a brain scan to determine if there was any brain damage from a lack of oxygen. Her program, Fashion Week, has been put on hold at this time.
