Falls Park Bathroom “Booby Trapped” with Dirty Syringe
A man using the Falls Park bathroom was injured with a dirty syringe that had been positioned in the toilet paper dispenser of one of the men’s room stalls. The man is undergoing blood tests but has so far turned up clean for HIV and Hep C though he’ll need further tests to make sure. HIV can take time to show up on tests.. Police searched the rest rooms and found no other needles and are claiming this is an isolated incident.
Let’s hope. There’s been an increase in heroin users moving into the upstate as part of the Northeast migration. Park bathrooms are a favorite place for many to shoot up in NYC and NJ so it’s possible someone was using then hid his rig when he got startled.
But it’s also just as possible someone got a dirty needle and did this on purpose. That means he might strike again. Do not reach into dispensers without looking first.
