Regarding the entry above titled "Man Jumped By Four Teens on Grand Ave" The entry says: Police identified one of the suspects as Tevaughn Harrell, 18. I Googled that name and apparently Tevaughn Harrell has done this type of thing before. This is from Fort Greene Patch's Police Blotter dated January 31, 2011: Two Teens Nabbed at Clinton-Washington Av Station Police arrested Tevaughn Harrell, 18, and his 16-year-old accomplice for trying to rob a man with a knife at Clinton-Washington Av Station on Jan. 27 at 10:25 p.m. Here's the link: http://fortgreene.patch.com/articles/a-man-an-nypd-scooter-and-three-bags-of-pot-this-week-s-police-blotter Why is this person back on the street so that he can assault more people? I hope they lock him up and keep him locked up this time.
