Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook


Police arrested a man who they said assaulted another fellow on Henry Street on Feb. 26.

The victim told cops that he was arguing with the suspect between Warren and Baltic streets at 3:50 pm when the brute slugged him in the face. Cops showed up a half-hour later and took the suspect into custody.

Card swiper swiped

A thief took a computer and credit card swiper from a business on Degraw Street on Feb. 26.

Employees at the establishment between Smith and Court streets said the crook entered the store sometime after 3 am, taking an HP computer worth $700 and a credit card swiper valued at $150.

Car crook

A crook took off with a wallet after raiding a truck parked on Bush Street on Feb. 22.

The victim told cops that he parked his car between Clinton and Court streets at 1 pm, leaving his wallet in the sun visor, but forgetting to close his rear window. He returned five hours later to find his wallet missing, along with the $50, credit cards, driver’s license, and Social Security card it contained.
