Greenpoint–Northside

Robbed of cash

Two bullies took a delivery man’s cash as he was trying to deliver food on Kent Avenue.

The victim was nearing N. Third Street at 1:30 am, when the thugs approached him and one threatened: “If you don’t give up the money, I’ll hurt you.”

The victim gave up $300 and the goons fled.

Bank heist

A bank robber tried to stickup an HSBC branch on Bedford Avenue on June 27.

The robber entered the bank, which is near N. Fourth Street, at 11:34 am, and handed the teller a note, which read: “I have a gun, I want $100 and $50, no ink, to teller.”

But the teller hit the alarm and the robber fled toward N. Third Street.

Phone snatch

A thief stole a woman’s phone on Bedford Avenue on June 27 — but was caught a short time later.

The woman was nearing Metropolitan Avenue at 11:00 am, when the perp approached her from behind and snatched the phone.

She chased after him for a block before a witness stopped the perp and fought him until police arrested the thief.

Hit from behind

Two perps beat up a man at Graham Avenue before stealing his phone on June 30.

The victim was nearing Withers Street from the L train at 1:20 pm, when two perps approached him from behind.

One punched the man in his neck, knocking him to the ground, and another took his phone before they both ran away.

Glass bust

A thug smashed a beer glass over a man’s head inside a Union Avenue bar on June 30 — and was soon arrested.

The victim and the thug were drinking together at Union Pool near Meeker Avenue at 2:40 am, when a fight broke out over a girl.

The thug grabbed the glass, smashed his friend’s head and ran out of the bar — but was soon arrested.

Cane beating

A man struck another man in the face with his cane on Richardson Street on June 30.

The victim was standing in front of his home, which is near Humboldt Street, at 2 pm, when the suspect walked by and asked him if he was “waiting on a cement truck.” The cane-wielding suspect then hit him in his head and shuffled away, and the victim was taken to a nearby hospital.

Sound city

A thief made off with musical equipment from a N. Sixth Street store on July 2.

The owner left his studio business, which is near Berry Street, at 4 pm, but when he returned at 6 pm the next day, he found the bathroom wall was damaged and the stuff was gone.
