PATERSON, NJ - A city resident was mugged early Tuesday morning by two suspects wielding a baseball bat and a knife near a west-side intersection known as a "hot spot."
According to Sgt.

One of the suspects was carrying a knife and the other had the bat.
They threatened the pedestrian, who handed over his cell phone and his cash, but was not injured in the mugging.
