Shot in the arm
An 18-year-old was shot in the forearm on N. Portland Avenue on June 1.
The victim said that he was walking between Myrtle and Park avenues at 10:30 pm when a gunman opened fire.
Once the gun smoke cleared, the victim ran to Brooklyn Hospital on DeKalb Avenue and St. Felix Street for help, he told police.
Two people had their iPhones ripped out of their hands while riding the rails last week. Here’s the rundown:
• A thug swiped an iPhone from a 36-year-old straphanger on a Manhattan-bound C train on June 3. The victim said that he chased the perp out of the Clinton-Washington Avenues station and down Fulton Street at 4:30 pm before the thief — and his beloved phone — faded into a crowd.
• A 31-year-old Park Slope woman was sitting on a Brooklyn-bound G at 9:30 pm on May 31 when a teen next to her swiped her iPhone and exited the train as it arrived at Fulton Street.
A 13-year-old girl was arrested for robbing a 33-year-old woman on June 6.
Police said the victim was passing the corner of Lafayette and South Portland avenues at 12:30 am when the teenybopper barrelled into her, knocking her off balance.
The teen ran off with the woman’s phone, but was soon grabbed up by police.
A sweltering shoplifter swiped seven pairs of shorts from the Flatbush Avenue Modell’s on June 1.
Police said that the 51-year-old thief was inside the sportswear store between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street when he grabbed the shorts from a display rack and ran off.
An employee chased the thief across the street to the corner of Fourth Avenue and Pacific Street, where the suspect took a swing at his pursuer and dropped the loot.
Cops caught up with the thief seconds later, taking him into custody after a brief struggle.
A daring devil crept into a Grand Avenue apartment on June 6 while the tenant was sleeping soundly.
Police said the victim hit the sheets in his home between Flushing and Park avenues at midnight. When he woke up at 9 am, his front door was open and unlocked. A computer and $80 was missing, he told police.
A burglar was the first guest to pop by a woman’s new DeKalb Avenue apartment on May 21.
The woman told police she had lived at her new address between Hudson Avenue and Rockwell Place for just three days before the thief forced his way inside, swiping four pricey watches valued at $18,000.
A thief crept into a Lafayette Avenue apartment on June 4 and got away with electronics and jewelry before the victim returned within an hour.
The 56-year-old tenant told police that he left the home between Ashland and St. Felix streets at 10 am. He returned 60 minutes later to find his front door unlocked and his side window open. His drapes were knocked to the floor and $2,500, a necklace and two laptop computers were missing, he said.
