Fights, a stabbing, and now stalking.

Crossgates is yet again in the news after a man was arrested this past Wednesday.  Cbs 6 Albany posted about Jamel Jones, a 34 year old male, who was arrested for unlawful imprisonment and stalking. Jamel Jones was reported to have entered a women's bathroom in Crossgates at the Regal cinema.  He then restrained a female, though I didn't read any further specifics.

Two days ago, it was announced that the police and Crossgates have partnered with each other for a pilot program.  There have been so many violent episodes lately at the mall that Guilderland police officers are now going to be stationed at different areas throughout the mall.  I think it's great to have the safety, but also a shame that the people in the mall have become so unsafe that officers are being pulled off the streets to police it.  Either way, there's no denying that there has been a lot of violence lately at Crossgates, so hopefully something will get it under wraps.
