Mime crime

Full Nelson

A man choked a teen and threatened her at knifepoint on Nelson Street on Jan. 10.

The 16-year-old victim said that she was near Hamilton Avenue at 9:30 am when someone approached her from behind, put a blade to her neck, and growled, “If you scream, I will cut you.”

Terrible trio
