Big shooting in Gowanus

76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Gun play

Two thugs assaulted and shot a man standing in a Bond Street hallway on Aug 22.

Cops said two men approached the 21-year-old victim between Baltic and Butler streets and started blasting away, hitting him once in the buttocks.

On Sept. 2, cops caught up with one of the suspects, a 19-year-old nicknamed “Izzy,” and arrested him. Officer Patrick Miller is credited with the arrest.

The victim’s wound is not considered life endangering, cops said.

Station heist

Someone stole cash out of the register at a gas station on Hamilton Avenue on Aug. 29.

Witnesses said that a man initially spent an inordinate amount of time inside the Sunoco station between Huntington and West Ninth streets, using the restroom twice in 10 minutes.

At around 3:53 pm, cops said, the cashier stepped away to restock shelves, and the man reached into the register and grabbed $1,600, fleeing after securing the booty.

Apple picking

Someone burglarized a Huntington Street apartment overnight on Aug. 23.

Cops said that the suspect entered the apartment, between Hicks and Columbia streets, between 7 pm and 12:30 am, and snatched two Apple laptops and two iPods. There were no signs of forced entry.

Older, not wiser

A man attacked another man during a robbery on Baltic Street on Sept. 4.

The 59-year-old victim said that he was between Hoyt and Bond streets at around 9:45 am when a man approached and beat him. Minutes after the crime, Officer Ali Hammutoglu arrested the suspect, a 49-year-old man.

Baked snake

A man was arrested after breaking into a Fourth Street bakery on Aug. 31 — and not even getting away with a muffin.

The man broke into the Kabir’s Bakery at around 10 am, but cops got to the shop, between Hoyt and Smith streets, before the 22-year-old suspect was gone. Officer Roman Liter is credited with the arrest.

No good deed

A woman was assaulted while visiting her uncle in a Henry Street nursing home on Aug. 16.

Cops said the 72-year-old victim got into an argument with her 45-year-old cousin, who then pushed and punched her at around 1 pm inside the facility between Congress and Warren streets. The suspect was arrested without incident.
