Today’s news:

Two beatings — and they were vicious

The Brooklyn Paper

Drunk chump

Some creeps snagged an empty wallet and some jewelry from a drunken man on Leonard Street on Aug. 29.

The victim told cops that he was stumbling near Meserole Avenue at 4:15 am when the goons used a foreign object to hit him in the face and the back of the head before making off with the loot.

Berry brawl

A group of thugs viciously mugged a man outside a Berry Street bar after he came to the aide of his quarreling girfriend on Aug. 28.

The victim said he just left the bar, which is near S. Sixth Street, at around 2 am to find his girlfriend in a verbal battle with three other ladies.

When he tried to calm everyone down, someone hit him over the head from behind.

That’s when another perp jumped in and pummeled the peacemaker — also taking his loot — before fleeing in a silver Jeep.

Shrimp assault

A pint-sized perp hit a man with a firearm on Humboldt Street on Aug. 29.

The victim said he was between Boreum and Seigel streets at 2 am when a group of thugs approached and demanded jewelry. One creep hit the victim over the head with a firearm after the victim called him “little.”

Cleaned house

Thieves took everything from a Metropolitan Avenue apartment over the Aug. 27 weekend.

The owners left town only to return on Sunday night to their home, which is between Olive and Catherine streets, trashed and their things missing.

There was no sign of forced entry — which makes sense, given that the landlord was showing the apartment for rental at the time.

Auto attack

Some crafty perp took a bunch of power tools and electronics from a car parked on Moore Street on Aug. 29.

The victim told police that he had left his car between White and Bogart streets and returned at 2:50 pm to find more than $1,000 in property gone.

Synagogue snatch

Some heathen stole a wallet from a man praying in a Bedford Avenue synagogue on Aug. 29.

The man told cops that he was dovening in the shul, which is between Ross and Rodney streets, at around 1 pm when the creep snatched the wallet right out of his jacket.

The God-unfearing thief got some credit cards and $120.

Pedal punch

A bike-riding bandit passed a woman on the sidewalk, punched her in the head, and stole her cellphone on Union Avenue on Aug. 27.

The woman told cops she was near Ainslie Street at around 8 pm when the pedaling perp made his attack, then fled.

Rude awakening

A stealthy perp sneaked into an apartment on Grand Street and stole $4,000 worth of electronics on Aug. 27.

The owner told police that she went to sleep at around midnight without locking the door of the house between Keap Street and Borinquen Place. When she woke up, the merchandise was gone.

Cellular heist

Some goons smashed the front window of a T-Mobile store on Graham Avenue, then escaped with $25,000 worth of high-tech goodies on Aug. 27.

The owner of the store between Moore and Veret streets told cops that the crime occurred at 5:30 am — seconds before his alarm company notified him.

Clean getaway

Some jerk snatched a bag from a truck parked on Kent Avenue on Aug. 26.

The owner said he parked his truck near Brooklyn–Queens Expressway to wash his hands, and when he returned 20 minutes later at 3 pm, the bag containing cash and credit cards was missing.

Car theft

A creep broke into a car parked on Grand Street and stole belongings totaling $880 on Aug. 27

The victim told police that she had left her car between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street at around 5 pm. When she returned two hours later, her things were gone.

Construx caper

Two creeps were arrested after stealing $1,500 worth of materials from a construction site on Harrison Avenue on Aug. 24.

A witness told cops that he saw the two perps sneak into the site near Hewes Street at 2:30 pm, gather the building booty, then flee a half-hour later.

The police nabbed the perps shortly after.

Tool time

Some perps stole a bunch of tools from a car parked on Driggs Avenue on Aug. 26.

The owner told police that he had parked near Division Avenue, and returned to the vehicle at 10 am to find $4,100 worth of tools missing.

Car begone

Some perp jacked that most popular of vehicles — a 1994 Honda Civic — from near the corner of White and Moore streets on Aug. 28. The victim told cops that he returned at 7 pm to find the car missing.

It’s the latest in a rash of thefts of very old Honda Civics, which are popular among thieves because the parts are so valuable, cops said.
