Two quick-handed jerks attacked and robbed a man as he tried to enter the Nassau Avenue G-train station on Feb. 24.
The 18-year-old victim tried to swipe his card in the station near Manhattan Avenue at about 2 pm when the thugs pounced. One perp choked the victim while the other grabbed his laptop, and the two fled in opposite directions — one on the G and one on the street.
Four burglaries were reported in Greenpoint on Feb. 23, and police say that at least some are related:
• Bandits stole a woman’s electronics from her N. Eighth Street apartment before she came home at 2:45 pm. Once inside the unit, which is between Roebling Street and Driggs Avenue, she noticed that her door jamb was broken and that two game consoles, a laptop, a TV and her purse were gone. • Crooks stole electronics sometime before 5 pm, this time from an apartment on Kingsland Avenue between Beadel and Herbert streets. The victim came home and saw that her TV, laptop, DVD player, camera and hard drive were missing. • Another apartment in the same Kingsland Avenue building was burglarized before the victim came home at 7 pm. The thugs beat down the front door and stole another laptop, a watch and a camera. • Two villains were caught in the act of stealing two laptops from a N. Fifth Street apartment at about 5:40 pm. The woman was leaving her apartment, which is between Roebling Street and Driggs Avenue, when she realized she left the stove on. She saw the crooks at the elevator holding her two laptops when she returned, and they fled. — Andy Campbell
