A young boy and his mother watched in abject horror as a man tried to steal their dog as they were playing with him in Cadman Plaza Park on June 19.
The boy had been holding the dog at around 4 pm, when the would-be thief came over and asked to hold the dog.
When the boy refused, the man said, “I want your dog to meet my dog,” then grabbed the dog took off running.
Both the boy and his mother began screaming, causing the man to drop the dog and flee. The dog, apparently, was uninjured.
A deaf and mute man was taunted with lewd gestures — and then slugged with a deep fryer basket — by an employee of a famous billions-serving hamburger restaurant on Court Street on June 23.
The bizarre incident began at around 2:10 am, when the speechless customer entered the burger chain, which is between Livingston and Schermerhorn streets, where he was promptly taunted with the lewd gestures.
Cops say the “discussion” then became violent, with the employee later taking the French fryer and hitting the victim in the head.
Several thousand dollars in electronics were swiped from a DUMBO office by a burglar who apparently broke through the wall overnight on June 21.
The owner of the small business, which is located on Jay Street between Front and Water streets, told cops that the thief got away with a video camera, a Macintosh computer, a Canon camera, and an iPod — a total haul of nearly $12,000.
Police believe the suspect gained access through a neighboring office, then broke through the wall. The suspect is also believed to be a small individual because the hole was not big enough for the average person.
