Hillcrest neighbors sighted the Hillcrest Pug Strangler Friday evening in the alley behind the Ciao Baci restaurant/bar. This was the first sighting of the Strangler after dark. He was lurking behind a dumpster and peering out at passers-by as they traversed the alley. This sketch was made by one of the many Hillcrest artists who have stepped up to help apprehend this dangerous offender. We here at FH wish to express our gratitude!
No effort to capture this man was made as everyone fled the area upon word of his presence.
It has been brought to our attention that a civic patrol of the Hillcrest Youth will be guarding this area going forward. The Hillcrest Youth is a neighborhood vigilante group for boys and girls under the age of 12.
EDIT: Please note that the Pug Strangler IS NOT a man named Alan W. There has been confusion. Some have suggested that Alan may be acting as a decoy, but I think they just made that up.
