A jogger on Clinton Avenue was thrown to the pavement and mugged by two hooligans on June 15.

The robbers stole the 26-year-old victim’s iPod.

A ruffian violently mugged a man on Washington Avenue in the wee hours of June 19.

The attacker knocked the 31-year-old victim to the ground at the corner of Lafayette Avenue at 3:50 am and kicked him in the mouth, breaking his two front teeth.

Music man

Burglars sneaked into a St. James Place dwelling on June 16 and stole a man’s DJ equipment, as well as his wedding ring.

The 47-year-old victim told police that he was not home from 1:20 to 10:30 pm, when he returned to find that his mixer, two CD players and band of gold were missing from his apartment, which is between DeKalb and Lafayette avenues.

Busted

Cops arrested four teenage hoodlums for mugging another teen at the corner of Gates and Washington avenues on June 18.

The quartet, ranging in age from 14 to 17, seized the victim, lifted him off the ground and hurled him to the concrete sidewalk before they stole his iPod.

Shortly after the 10:30 am incident, police apprehended four teens fitting the description of the muggers.

Off the streets

Juvenile delinquents mugged a woman on Clinton Street on June 17, but police later apprehended one of the minors.

According to the 26-year-old victim, several adolescents approached her at the corner of Fulton Street at 9:05 pm and demanded that she fork over her bag. When she refused to give it up, the gang shoved her and snatched the purse, containing a phone, her ID and banking and credit cards.

Later, police collared a 13-year-old boy suspected of the robbery.— Mike McLaughlin
