At 7:27 p.m., James Forman left 10-0 Fifth Ave., walked to the Premier Delicatessan at 96 Fifth Ave., with an unidentified Negro male. They left the delicatessan and both entered a blue or grey Mustang automobile bearing NJ license plate JZT 297, with a letter “R” in the back window. The letter “R” was red in color and had a design on it which appeared to be a college emblem and may be a symbol for Rutgers University.
Forman and the unidentified Negro male drove to 274 E. 10th St., NYC, where Forman went into the building and came out about ten minutes later with a female who looks similar to XXXXXXXX wo got in the back seat of the vehicle and Forman got in the front seat.
