Father of Girl Killed In Times Square Attack Restrained After Threatening Her Murderer

Times Square in New York City is an iconic place, full of tourists, selfies, and many happy memories spent. But for one family from Portage, Michigan, Times Square will forever be a place where their world ended.

Alyssa Elsman, 18, was killed last week, when a mentally unstable and drunk driver intentionally plowed through pedestrians on a sidewalk, injuring 22 other bystanders. Elsman was the only person who died from the attack, and her sister was hospitalized for her injuries. And her family, as you can imagine, is besides themselves with grief.
