News Roundup for August 3rd

NY1 reports a pregnant Bronx mother and her boyfriend face charges that the pair abducted the mother’s six children form their grandmother’s custody. Madeline Cotto, 28, of Burke Avenue, and her boyfriend, Malik Martin, 24, were arrested in Baltimore yesterday, where they had been living with the children.

This week the Daily News highlighted the 55 open building violations of 2126 Valentine in Tremont and the housing woes of former residents, the Berry family. City Councilman Joel Rivera has vowed to help the family, long deprived of electricity, with relocation efforts.

The New York Blood Center is calling on Bronx residents to help replenish the city’s blood supply. A Daily News article talks about the blood shortage and local donation drives.
