Early morning beating at Kellogg Diner

Eggs and thugs

A violent thug attacked and robbed a woman on her way home from Kellogg’s Diner on May 15.

The victim told cops that the perp came up behind her at around 5:30 am on N. Fifth Street between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street, grabbed her, covered her mouth and threw her to the ground.

“Give me your bag or I am going to hurt you,” he said.

The hood grabbed the purse — which had some cash, cards and an iPhone — and took off.

Copper gold

A wired perp sneaked into an electrical storage shed on Greenpoint Avenue and ripped off more than $10,000 of copper wire on May 10.

Management told cops that the wire fiend sneaked in overnight and cut the chains securing eight spools of copper wire to the inside of the shed between Moultrie and Humboldt streets.

Rim job

A greasemonkey grabbed the tires and rims off a car on Calyer Street overnight on May 6.

The victim told cops she parked between West and Franklin streets at around 11 pm and returned the next morning to find that someone had stolen her car’s wheels.


A tech-savvy thief took a fancy Apple laptop from a car on Berry Street on May 15.

The victim told cops he left his MacBook in a friend’s car at 3 am near N. Sixth Street. When he came back an hour later, the computer was gone.

Tool jack

Perps busted into a man’s car on N. Ninth Street overnight on May 14 and swiped power tools.

The victim told cops that he parked between Havemeyer and Roebling streets at 10 pm and returned the next day at noon to find his nail gun, power drill and other tools were missing.
