Just
three months before Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors was
murdered in Morningside Park, a Columbia University student was
mugged at knifepoint by a trio of youths in the exact same spot, The
Post has learned. Yao Yu, an international student from China
studying mathematics, had only been in the U.S. four days when he was
robbed on Aug. 27 while walking down the stairs at 116th Street and
Morningside Drive. Yu was walking home from class that afternoon when
he was approached by three suspects, one carrying a knife and the
other a stick, police said. “They asked me where I was from and if
I had any money. At first, I didn’t think they were threatening me,
so I told them I didn’t have any money. Then, they showed me an
open knife, so I gave them my wallet and they took my money,” Yu
told The Post Friday from his Harlem apartment.
