Gun-wielding goons

Two housebreakers threatened a woman with a gun and stole from her W. 28th Street apartment on March 29. 

The victim told police she was bringing the trash into the hallway of her apartment building between Mermaid and Surf avenues at around 10 pm when she encountered the home invaders, who forced their way into the home at gunpoint, and stole electronics and other items. 


Two pillagers brutally robbed a  woman in the elevator of a W. Eighth Street building on March 30.

The victim told police that the one of the bandits smacked her phone on the ground and held her in a headlock inside the public housing complex between Avenue V and Avenue X at around 11:30 am, while the other punched and kicked her — before stealing a bag of chips, some cash, and cigarettes. 

Train shopper

A thief snagged AirPods and a designer bag from a man waiting for a train at Neptune Avenue station on April 1. 

The victim told police that the bandit snagged the ill-gotten goods and ran out of the station at the intersection of W. Sixth Street at around 6 pm, before fleeing into the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex.
