Gun mug

A woman was mugged at gunpoint — and even had her boots stolen — by a perp on Hamilton Avenue early on Nov. 14.

The woman was near Mill Street at around 3:45 am when someone stuck a gun in her back and said, “Give me your money.”

Once she complied, he ordered her to surrender her footware, too. She walked away barefooted from the 3:45 am attack while the gunman left with the boots and $50.

Teen scream

A teenager had his cellphone stolen by another youngster inside a Court Street candy shop on Nov. 6 — but he was quickly collared.

Cops say that the youths were both inside the store, which is between Amity and Congress streets, at around 6 pm when the older boy simulated having a gun and demanded the 16-year-old’s cellphone.

It’s unclear what happened next, but the end result is clear: Officers Theresa McCourt and Rosemary Gomez slapped on the cuffs the next day after the victim picked his perp out of a lineup at the Union Street stationhouse.

Sour ‘Milk’

A thief broke into the Buttermilk Channel restaurant on Nov. 9, breaking into the register — though it’s unclear what he got.

Cops have surveillance footage of the perp breaking into the window of the Court Street eatery at around 9:40 pm. In the video, the thug can be seen rifling through the cash register and carrying a cardboard box.

But that’s all that can be seen.

Jean genies

Three perps rushed into the Urban Outfitters on Atlantic Avenue on Nov. 9 and swiped 40 pairs of jeans.

The trio — two men and one woman — entered the shop, which is between Clinton and Court streets, at around 5 pm and grabbed the clothing. They rushed out and hopped into a waiting car.

Cops put the value of the haul at $2,160.

Court beating

A woman was mugged for her cellphone on W. Ninth Street on Nov. 15.

Cops say the 22-year-old victim was near Court Street at around 9:30 am when a 5-foot-6 bearded man rushed past and grabbed her purse, which contained $60 and a black-and-white Mickey Mouse wallet.

“Give me back my cellphone,” she yelled to no avail as the man fled.

Game playing

A burglar stole thousands of dollars in video games — plus hardware on which to enjoy it — from a Dwight Street apartment on Nov. 12.

Cops say that the thug entered the apartment, which is between King and Verona streets in Red Hook, sometime between 8:30 am and 2:30 pm when the resident was not home.

When he returned, he discovered the missing playthings, including 100 video games, plus a watch and a cellphone.
