Hoboken Facebook comment leads to police complaint

HOBOKEN — On Jan. 27 at approximately 9:30 a.m., a Hoboken man told police that he’d received a threat on his Facebook page after complimenting a woman on her “costume.”
The victim said he is a “costumer” who often attends costume conventions in the tri-state area. The victim stated that he wrote on the page of one woman whom he’d never met that her costume was “really amazing.”
Later, another man wrote that if he ever saw the victim at a convention, he would probably stab him for being “a total creep.” The victim filed a complaint against the man who left the comment, but police were unable to obtain more information about the identity of the person who commented at the time of the complaint.
