Paul Bass ’82, the editor and founder of the online newspaper The New Haven Independent, was mugged Saturday night in the Westville neighborhood of the city. Bass, who is also a political science professor at Yale, wrote about the incident on the Independent. He said that as he was walking home from synagogue with his wife and a friend Saturday evening around 7 p.m., two boys dressed in black jumped out of the bushes holding a gun. The boys demanded money, but since it was the Sabbath, Bass said neither he nor his wife had any. After searching the group’s pockets, the boys rode off.
