Today’s news:

Thief was fool for gold

The Brooklyn Paper

Jewel fool

A creep with a gold bug burglarized a Henry Street home on April 1.

The 29-year-old victim told cops she left her house, located near Fourth Place, at around 9:30 am, and returned at 5:15 pm to find that several gold rings, a bracelet, and a pendant were missing.

The crook, who cops said entered through a rear bathroom window, also snatched her laptop.

Carroll choke

A man brutally attacked and robbed a woman on Carroll Street on March 31.

The 40-year-old victim told cops that she was near Bond Street at 7:30 pm when she heard a voice behind her, and was suddenly placed in a chokehold and thrown to the ground.

Her attacker punched her in the head and wrapped his hands around her mouth to stifle her screams. He made off with her $250 Gucci wallet containing $40, four credit cards and an insurance card.

Seat creep

Someone ransacked a car on Mill Street on April 2.

The 48-year-old victim told cops that he parked near Clinton Street at around 4:30 pm, and when he returned to his 2007 Chevy Suburban at 8:30 pm, his rear driver’s-side window was damaged, and his radio, speaker box, car battery, floor mats, and three seats worth $1,500, were gone.
