    Well sounds like the victim knows the guy and the place was full of witnesses so we should have this solved in a jiffy and we can all go back and get on with frequenting North o’ town.

    Huh? Suspect identified? So, I assume he is “wanted”.. should the public be aware if the “wanted” person? Maybe we can help catch the suspect?

    A suspect has been identified, hopefully, by the victim, as well as by camera, now there is a need to go thru the process—I do have one question..why does it take almost 3 months, in some cases, to put some persons in court and have an early trial date..i.e. the men who were fighting on court street, they pleaded not guilty but the trial date is not to July..Its taking too long, and others get the impression they can run wild all summer.
