The popular pizza joint, Monty Q’s, was robbed overnight on June 11 — and the owner has a reasonable suspicion that a former employee was the culprit.
What makes him so sure? When the worker was fired from the restaurant, which is on Montague Street between Henry and Clinton streets, he allegedly said, “I am going to cause harm.”
Cops say the suspect got away with cash.
An apartment on Court Street was robbed in just a half-hour on June 11.
The owner of the unit, which is between Remsen and Joralemon streets, told police that she left her apartment at 1:15 pm and returned just 30 minutes later to discover that $1,655 in jewelry had been stolen from her desk. The big-ticket item was a $1,400 gold necklace.
It was practically a strip search on Schermerhorn Street on June 11 when a thief stole the white metal belt right off his victim’s waist.
Cops say that the robber ran up to his belt-wearing victim at Bond Street at around 2 pm, ripped the belt off, and then punched him for good measure before running off.
Total value of the theft? A mere $25.
A man was brutally assaulted by 11 assailants while riding the G train on June 11.
He told police the gang of robbers surrounded him at around 5 pm and, after sizing him up as no latter day Bernie Goetz, started punching and kicking him mercilessly for 30 minutes.
Before ending their assault, they grabbed his cellphone.
One of Downtown Brooklyn’s venerable drinking establishments became a crime scene on June 12, when a bald-faced — and, it turned out, bald-headed — thief snatched a woman’s bag.
The victim told police that she was boozing (and, if she was wise, hamburgering) at Kevin Barry’s on Willoughby Street, at around 10 pm.
After being momentarily distracted (it must have been the burger!), she saw a bald man take the bag, which contained $1,100 in electronics and cash and flee from the watering hole, which is between Lawrence and Jay streets.
An attempted robbery on the A train was foiled on June 13 when the would-be teen victim fought back.
The victim said he was approached at around 6:30 pm by a thug who snarled, “I know you got bread [so] run your f—ing pockets.”
But that order was met with a counter proposal in the form of a punch, which sent the robber reeling, giving the would-be victim just enough time to jump off the train at High Street.
Thieves targeted cars all over the neighborhood, breaking into at least three vehicles. Here’s a roundup:
• A thief broke into a vehicle parked overnight on York Street on June 4, stealing a CD player. The victim said she parked the car between Gold and Bridge streets at 6 pm and returned the next morning.
• A car was stolen from Joralemon Street overnight on June 11. The victim said he parked his car between Hicks Street and Garden Place and returned the next morning to find it gone.
• A Mercedes Benz parked in a lot on Schermerhorn Street was broken into and $25 in personal items stolen on June 12. The victim told police that he left the car in the lot, which is between Nevins Street and Third Avenue, at 8:09 pm and returned less than two hours later to find that his vehicle, with ironic novelty license plates 2DREAM, had been broken into and burgled.
