78th Precinct

Park Slope

Scissor slasher

A scissor-wielding woman attacked a man inside her 12th Street apartment on Jan. 31, say police.

The 21-year-old victim told cops that the vicious aggressor slashed him with a pair of scissors in the face, arms, chest, neck, and back at 4 pm inside her residence between Seventh and Eighth avenues.

She also punched the man in his left eye, causing bruising and swelling, before fleeing, the victim told police.

The woman was gone by the time police arrived and the victim does not want to press charges, according to cops.

Car shopping spree

A crook stole a bunch of name-brand merchandise left inside a car parked on Carlton Avenue on Feb. 1.

The 20-year-old victim told cops that he parked his ride on the street between Prospect Place and St. Marks Avenue at 8 pm. When he returned nearly two hours later, his Ralph Lauren jacket, Burberry duffle bag, Kindle Fire tablet, Jordan sneakers, Gucci belt, two pairs of jeans, a sweatshirt, and beanie hat were missing.

Apartment burglarized

A thief broke in to a Prospect Place apartment and took off with a bundle of electronic goods on Feb. 1.

The man and woman who live at the residence between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues told police that they left their abode at 9 am and when they returned 12 hours later, found their place ransacked with multiple items out of place and dresser drawers pulled open.

The bandit made off with the woman’s Sony laptop, the man’s MacBook laptop, and an external hard drive.

The residents told police that they moved into the apartment in September with the original locks still on the doors.


A crook snatched a woman’s white iPhone when she was on a Coney Island-bound Q train at the Atlantic Avenue subway station on Jan. 27.

The 35-year-old victim told police the thief swiped her cellphone out of her hands when the train doors opened at the station near Pacific Street at 10:15 pm.

School robbery

A sneaky bandit swiped a teacher’s debit and credit cards from her wallet that she left inside the Seventh Avenue public high school on Jan. 30.

The educator told police that she left her wallet in a blue duffel bag in back of the fourth-floor classroom in the school between Fourth and Fifth streets at 1:25 pm when she went to the cafeteria for lunch.

When she returned at 2:40 pm, her money, bank cards, along with her MetroCard, Social Security card, and driver’s license were gone.

The teacher told cops that a similar incident occurred two weeks prior with the same student class.

Attacked for iPhone

Two ski cap-wearing thugs mugged a woman for her iPhone on 13th Street on Jan. 28.

The 26-year-old victim told police that she was near Seventh Avenue at 8 pm when a duo of goons started to follow her.

One of the male attackers shoved the woman to the ground from behind and snatched the cellular device out of her hand while his accomplice forcefully pushed the woman again, the victim told cops. Both perps fled in a gray Nissan.

Good time gone wrong

A sly perp stole a teenager’s debit card most likely when he was on a party bus on Jan. 1.

The 19-year-old victim told cops that he realized his bank card was missing the next day at 2:30 am when he was at his friend’s Prospect Place apartment between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues. The victim went to an ATM to withdraw cash and couldn’t because his card was missing.

The victim found out from bank authorities that someone had made purchases with his card totaling $46.51 on Jan. 30, according to cops.

I'm from here and I'll say whatever I want to about the crime in my neighborhood. As for your tiresome whines about transplants, if you don't like newcomers moving to the city then YOU should move the f--k out since that's the way it has always been. To me, the recent influx of newcomers has been a blessing, and I hope they continue to displace the resident lowlifes who are committing the crimes listed above.

Monkey in this case refers to the kind of person that assaults someone in public for their iphone or other possessions (see above).

@jjm Yes there will always be criminals in NYC but in my neighborhood many of the well known problem individuals (drug dealers, junkies, gang kids, etc.) have been, and continue to be displaced by gentrification. Typically, they live in multi-generational rent stabilized apts or crappy houses owned by a family member, and in either case market forces are slowly but surely dislodging them. This is the main reason why crime has been dropping for years now. You are correct that many of the newcomers to the city do not recognize their vulnerability, and need to wake up to the reality that is NYC.
