Women beat up other woman for phone

The Brooklyn Paper

90th Precinct

Southside–Bushwick

Ladies’ night

Two women tried to steal another woman’s iPhone on Driggs Avenue on Jan. 23.

The victim told police that she was talking on her phone near Broadway at 9:30 pm when the thieves approached her from behind.

One perp said, “I’m going to kick your white ass,” and they did — punching the victim several times — but failed to steal her iPhone.

Mobile thieves

Three thieves allegedly stole $2,650 worth of phones from a Graham Avenue telecom store on Jan. 27.

Cops say the trio entered the Mobile 21 store between Moore and Varet streets at 10 am and demanded cash from the manager. The manager refused, so the perps broke a display case, grabbed as many phones as they could hold, and fled.

But they didn’t get far. Police arrested two suspects.

Churches united

A thief stole an iPhone, a video game system and a camcorder from a church group’s Whipple Street headquarters on Jan. 21.

Powers out

A thief stole an iPod and a camera from a Powers Street apartment on Jan. 27.

Electronics haul

A thief stole two computers, a video game system, and a camera from a Montrose Avenue apartment on Jan. 25.

Mac attack

A thief stole two macbook computers from a Broadway apartment on Jan. 23.

Thousands taken

A thief stole $6,000, a computer, and a bottle of whiskey from a S. Second Street apartment on Jan. 24.

Frozen assets

A thief stole $2,900 from an ice cream truck parked on Ten Eyck Street on Jan. 25.

The driver parked his truck near Union Avenue at 3 pm, but when he returned 15 minutes later, he saw the passenger-side window had been broken and the cash was gone.

Mini rims

A thief stole a car’s tires and put the car on cinderblocks on Johnson Avenue on Jan. 27.

The driver parked his Mini Cooper near Manhattan Avenue at 12:30 am, but when he returned seven hours later, he saw his tires were gone.
