HOBOKEN - Hoboken police are investigating what they're describing at as a mob attack involving 12 people. They say it occurred just before 11 p.m. Thursday night at Pier A on Sinatra Drive.

Police reports say the victim, an unidentified Newark man, was walking by the park in a lab coat, which he wore for work. He was with a friend. The coat apparently attracted the attention of two separate groups. After ignoring several remarks, the groups got close and started pushing, shoving and eventually hitting.
