Man Charged In Attempted Rape In Brooklyn McDonald’s Bathroom

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A suspect was arrested and charged Sunday with trying to sexually assault a woman after locking her inside a McDonald’s bathroom in Brooklyn. Jason Smith, 29, of Brooklyn, was charged with attempted rape in the Friday incident. Police said the suspect followed the 22-year-old victim into the restroom of the eatery near Rockaway Parkway and Conklin Avenue in Canarsie around 2:30 p.m. Friday. He then allegedly locked the door, pushed the woman against the wall and pulled his pants down. Police said the woman screamed and the man calmly walked away. Residents in the area told CBS2’s Brian Conybeare this weekend that they were surprised. “Wow, that’s terrible. Oh my god… I hope they find him,” Nicola Hyman said. “You have to use the ladies’ room, obviously, but you just have to be careful and aware of what’s going on. There’s crazy people out there.” The woman was not hurt. Read More »

Abducted Toddler Found In LA, Amber Alert Canceled

PALMS ( — An Amber Alert was canceled Friday night after authorities recovered a 1-year-old boy in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Palms after he was abducted out of the San Francisco area by his possibly suicidal father. California Highway Patrol confirmed that the boy and his father were found by Los Angeles police at South Sepulveda and National boulevards sometime before 7:51 p.m. No further details were confirmed. Jerry Rodriguez, chief of investigations at the San Francisco district attorney’s office, said Makai Bangoura was taken by his father, Jason Lam, Thursday in San Francisco. Authorities Friday said they received information that the pair may be headed south on Interstate 5 toward Southern California. Rodriguez said the boy’s mother went to police Thursday to report that her son had not been returned by his father. He said authorities issued an Amber Alert Friday after learning the toddler might be in danger. The alert warns that Lam “may be suicidal” and should not be approached without law enforcement help. The boy was abducted May 18, the alert said. (© Copyright 2017 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved. The Associated Press contributed to this report.) Read More »

Comey Agrees To Publicly Testify Before Senate Intelligence Committee

NEW YORK (CBSNEwYork/AP) — Fired FBI director James Comey has agreed to publicly testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The committee announced Friday night that Comey will appear at an opening hearing on Capitol Hill sometime after Memorial Day. It will be the first time we hear from Comey in person since President Donald Trump  let him go on May 9, igniting a firestorm, CBS2’s Andrea Grymes reported. He’s expected to discuss the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election, as well as his firing. The announcement came just hours after the New York Times reported that Trump told Russian diplomats that firing the “nut job” FBI director had relieved “great pressure” on him. The newspaper cites the White House’s official written account of the Oval Office meeting. It says one official had read quotations to the Times and another had confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion. Friday’s report quotes Trump calling ousted FBI Director James Comey “crazy” and “a real nut job.” It says the president then told Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador that he “faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” Trump met with the Russians on May 10, the day after he fired Comey . “People are seeing things that they think are wrong, and that most people think is wrong. They’re seeing them unfold in front of them, and they want it out in the public, because there seems to be no way to stop it in private,” New York Times national security correspondent Matthew Rosenberg said following the report. In a statement, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in part, “by grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia’s actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russia.” He went on to say Comey’s firing would not have ended the Russia investigation, and the bigger story is the leaking of highly classified conversations. Trump has been narrowing a short list and interviewing candidates to replace FBI Director James Comey who he fired May 9. The president did not announce his pick for FBI director before leaving Friday on his first foreign trip. Trump said Thursday he was “very close” to naming a replacement and that former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman was among his top choices. Trump boarded Air Force One Friday without making any comment about the future leadership of the law enforcement agency. The president departed Friday afternoon on a four-country, nine-day tour of the Middle East and Europe. Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported that a senior White House adviser is a significant person of interest in the Russia investigation. In response to that article, Spicer said the investigation will conclude there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and any foreign entity. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.
