76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Three on one

Three thugs pulled a gun on a 40-year-old shutterbug at the corner of Smith and W. Ninth streets on July 16, running off with an expensive camera.

The victim was nearing the corner at 10:50 pm when the suspects approached, flashed their weapon and demanded his possessions.

The goons made off with the victim’s wallet, backpack and camera bag, which contained an $850 Canon camera and a $750 lens.

Gunning for wallets

A 16-year-old gunman allegedly held up a 20-year-old at Court Street and Fourth Place on July 18 — only to be grabbed by police a few moments later.

The victim was passing the intersection at 3:08 am when the teenage suspect charged at him, sticking his pistol in the man’s face.

Cops arrested a suspect soon afterwards.

Sharp steal

A thief broke into an Amity Street construction site on July 11, taking a $2,000 demolition saw.

Workers said someone ripped a panel off the fence surrounding the site between Henry and Clinton streets and snuck inisde sometime after 10 am, making off with the pricey tool.
