Amazon returns

A brute robbed an Amazon driver at gunpoint on Sept. 14 on Washington Walk.

The victim told police that he was delivering packages near Myrtle Avenue when the crook pointed a handgun at him and snagged two packages before running off.

No take-backs

Two bruisers assaulted a man on Prince Street on Sept. 15.

The victim told police that one of the baddies yelled “You stole s–t from me” near Tillary Street, and they began punching and kicking him, before stealing the victim’s sneakers and iPhone charging cable.

Paramedics rushed the victim to Brooklyn Methodist Hospital with cuts on his back and shoulders and a busted lip.

Phone theft

A suspect allegedly punched a man multiple times in the head and stole his phone on Prince Street on Sept. 15.

The victim told police that the man allegedly started hitting him before stealing his Huawei cell phone near Myrtle Avenue. 

Paramedics took the victim to Woodhull Hospital with pain, swelling, and blurred vision in one eye, while NYPD officers arrested the suspect.

Bodega thief

A man tried to rob the Classon Avenue deli on Sept. 15.

An employee told police that the alleged robber walked around the counter, tried to open the register, and said “Give me everything or I’ll hit you hard,” but fled empty handed. 

The victim quickly pointed him out to nearby cops, who arrested the man on the spot. 

Dance studio smack

A jerk slacked a woman outside a Lafayette Avenue dance studio on Sept. 15. 

The victim told police that she was on line outside the Mark Morris Dance Group near Rockwell Place when the rogue waltzed up and hit her in the head with a heavy shopping bag. 

The bruised woman told police that she was going to the hospital after filing a report. 

E-bike phone home

An invisible thief nabbed an unattended e-bike on Grand Avenue on Sept. 12.

The victim told police that he left his bike parked near Lefferts Avenue for two nights, but when he returned for his expensive ride, it was gone. 

Moped mo-more

A locked moped was stolen from a Clifton Place home on the night of Sept. 11.

The victim told police that he left the moped in the unfinished basement of his building near Grand Avenue with a chain looped through the tires, but before he went back down the next morning, the pirate had snagged it. 

Fanny pack flies away

A ne’er-do-well reached into an open car window on James Place and stole a fanny pack on Sept. 14.

The victim told police that he parked his work truck near Gates Avenue to use the bathroom, when the purse snatcher reached into the window and grabbed his bag — containing a wallet, debit card, driver’s license, and $200 in cash.

Lost keys, wrong hands

A brigand found a pair of misplaced car keys on Clermont Avenue and took off in the vehicle on Sept. 15.

The victim told police that he parked the car near Myrtle Avenue before heading to his job at a nearby construction site. At some point during the day, he lost his car keys, and got a ride home with a coworker. When he came back on Sept. 16 with a spare set of keys, the car was gone.

Police confirmed that the vehicle hadn’t been towed, and toll cameras tracked the vehicle heading across the Brooklyn Bridge toward Manhattan on the morning of Sept. 16.
