Car stolen at gunpoint

GTA Williamsburg

Three stick-up artists mugged a man at gunpoint and then sped off in his sports car down Jackson Street on Oct. 17.

The 38-year-old victim said he was getting into his car at around 12:30 am when a younger man pointed a grey handgun at him and said, “Drop your keys on the ground.”

Two more perps came up from behind the car, which was between Manhattan Avenue and Graham Avenue, and emptied the victims pockets before all three sped off in the 2004 Acura MDX.

He’s crafty!

A crafty crook used a credit card to open a man’s apartment door on Conselyea Street to steal two laptops on Oct. 19.

The 23-year-old victim told police that his door has no defense to credit cards and can be popped open with a swipe — which is exactly what the computer geek did between 5:30 and 9:30 pm in the apartment, which is between Lorimer Street and Union Avenue.

Climbing crook

A thief climbed a fire escape and through a Guernsey Street window and got away with electronics on Oct. 21.

The victim said that he was out of his apartment, which is between Meserole and Norman avenues, from 7:30 am to 8:45 pm. Between those hours, the thief took advantage of the open window and snatched an Apple laptop and a Bose sound dock.

Barstool snatch

A late-working thief snatched a woman’s bag off a Bedford Avenue barstool early on Oct. 24.

The unknowing 25-year-old victim, pounding drinks at around 3 am at the Charleston, between N. Seventh and N. Eighth streets, said the snatcher got away with $40, a camera, IDs and credit cards.
