While Tyrone Cooper, 22, one of the alleged assailants, has now been apprehended, Stephanie McGraw, her W.A.R.M (We All Really Matter) team, Jackie Row-Adams and her Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E. (Stop Another Violent End) held a support rally for the young woman recently attacked and assaulted in Harlem.
On Jan. 18, a 31-year-old woman was swarmed by a group of men outside a Harlem liquor store before being beaten, spat upon and robbed. The woman, who did not wish to be identified, stopped at a liquor store on West 128th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue after work around 6 p.m. Monday when the group of men offered to buy her a bottle of wine. She politely declined, and that’s when the situation escalated. They followed her, surrounded her and attacked her.
