The person in the attached photo is known for allegedly walking into cars at red lights or coming out of parking spots, etc.
He then goes over to the driver, shows him or her a broken phone, appears to be limping or other injuries and demands payment – or if not he will sue.
He is frequently on 18th Avenue – high 50s/low 60th Streets.
If this happens to you, calmly tell him that you will pull over and you will call Police/Shomrim to file a report. He usually walks away. Either way, police should be notified about the incident.
