To the editor of THE EAGLE:

I was recently assaulted on Bradford Street in Pittsfield at around 8 p.m. The perpetrator took my purse and left me lying in the street after first threatening me with a knife.

I want to thank the Pittsfield police and the detective who helped me. They were all very kind and considerate. They truly are Pittsfield’s finest.
