Early-morning group mugging on Manhattan Avenue

90th Precinct


Bars none

A crew of cretins attacked a guy and robbed him of his phone on Manhattan Avenue on Oct. 10, police said.

The victim said he was at Moore Street at 3:15 am when between three and five goons surrounded him. One shoved him down, another kicked him in the back of the head, and a third climbed on top of him and snatched the device out of his hand, officers said.

The victim said he didn’t get a good look at the culprits.

Serial stole

A prowler burgled a Rodney Street apartment and stole all four occupants’ computers within a half-hour time frame on Oct. 10, law enforcement officials said.

One of the victims said that he left his dwelling between S. Third and S. Fourth streets at 11:30 pm. When he returned at just after midnight on Oct. 11, his computer was nowhere to be found, cops said.

He went into his roommates’ rooms and found their computers taken as well, according to the NYPD.

He wanted more than a ride

A taxi passenger pulled a gun on his driver in the Bushwick Houses on Oct. 9, a police report says.

The victim told said he got a call from a blocked number to pick someone up on Stagg Walk between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue at 1 am on Oct. 9. When he drove up, the lowlife hopped in the car and pointed a gun at his head, officers said.

“Give me everything,” the predatory passenger supposedly said.

The hack turned over $100, and the goon ran into a nearby building, per police.

Dirty dancing

A thief stole a phone out of a woman’s pocket as she was dancing in a bar on Broadway on Oct. 9, officers said.

The 24-year-old victim said she was cutting a rug at the watering hole between Bedford and Driggs avenues at midnight when she noticed that her cellphone was not in her left pocket.

She told police that she had not taken her jacket off all night. She used a phone tracker to trace the device to the corner of Nassau Avenue and Diamond Street in Greenpoint, but had no luck finding it when she went there the next day, according to a report.

Stand clear of the closing doors

A sneaky thief grabbed a phone out of a woman’s hand as she stepped off an M train at the Lorimer Street station on Oct. 7, cops said.

The 30-year-old victim said that she got on an M train in Manhattan and rode it all the way to the station at the corner of Broadway and Lorimer Street at 4:10 pm.

As she exited the train, a crook reached through the open doors and snatched the device, police recounted.

Hammering it out

An argument at a Maspeth Avenue workspace escalated when a construction worker beat his coworker with a hammer on Oct. 6, according to the authorities.

The 29-year-old victim said he was arguing with his coworker over a workspace at the site between Conselyea Street and Kingsland Avenue at 2:30 pm, when suddenly his colleague turned violent. The bully grabbed a hammer and bashed the victim twice, once in the shoulder and once in the forearm, cops said.

Bad tipper

A tough guy ordered a pizza, then, instead of paying for it, socked the delivery driver in the face and stole the pie on Graham Avenue on Oct. 10, according to the NYPD.

The victim said that he was delivering a pizza to Ten Eyck Walk at 10:55 pm when he got into an argument with the scoundrel who ordered it.

“I’m going to take that pizza. I’m not paying for it and I’m going to f— you up,” the galoot purportedly barked before doing the deed.

Anger management

Police arrested a 23-year-old man after he allegedly attacked a woman during a road rage incident on Gardner Avenue on Oct. 11.

The 54-year-old woman said she was driving at Metropolitan Avenue at 2:30 pm when she got into an argument with the suspect.

The accused jumped out of his ride, punched the woman, and took her keys and cellphone, then ran away, cops reported. Police arrested the man and charged him with felony robbery.
