A SHOCKING picture is circulating showing a woman performing a sex act “while peeing” on a New York street as Manhattan has suffered a surge in crime.
The photograph was taken on Sunday at around 9pm in the city’s Upper West Side, the Twitter post claims.
The image shows a woman crouching down with her pants around her ankles appearing to perform oral sex on a topless man.
The woman allegedly removed her trousers so that she could urinate on the sidewalk during the intimate moment, the person who took the photo told the Daily Mail.
“It was vile, but [this] has become the norm for that area,” resident Mike G told the outlet.
“It was Sunday night. Not much foot traffic. There were probably one or two others that walked by.
“I don’t usually take pictures of others’ misfortunes, but this was a level of degeneracy I haven’t seen out in the open in the neighborhood yet.”
A representative of the group told the outlet: “9pm on a summer evening on the UWS – hardly imaginable a few months ago.
“Usually children [are] enjoying an ice cream cone after an evening at the playground. Now open prostitution. The change in the neighborhood since the use of hotels as shelters in undeniable.”
Crime in the Big Apple has been on the rise since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
In mid-March, 2,500 city jail inmates were released due to the pandemic, and 75 percent of them were convicted felons, the New York Daily News reported.
Chief Michael LiPetri, the NYPD’s top crime strategist, said that roughly 2,100 people who were caught with a gun since the beginning of 2019 are walking the streets again.
Year-to-date shootings are up 63 percent and murders are up 27 percent, the outlet reported.
However, Mayor Bill de Blasio insists that there are many reasons for the spike in shootings.
“There’s not one cause for something like this. There’s a lot of different pieces,” he said.
“The fact that the court system is not working, the economy’s not working, people have been pent up for months and months, so many issues underlying this challenge.”
Despite the apparent rise in incidents, overall crime is down nearly 3 percent, according to NYPD data obtained by the outlet.
