90th Precinct


Bad company

A group of ruffians followed a guy into his S. Sixth Street abode on Jan. 27 and attacked and robbed him, police said.

The victim said that he was on Grand Street at Roebling Street, on his way home, when a stranger asked him for a place to stay. He kept walking, then realized that there were three toughs tailing him, according to NYPD officials.

The goons followed their quarry into his house on S. Sixth Street between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street at 3:30 am, pursuing him all the way into his bedroom, officers said. There, one punched him in the face and another strangled him until he lost consciousness, per police. When he came to three hours later, his laptop, phone, record player, wallet, credit card, and $180 in cash had been taken, and he headed for the hospital, a report says.

The hard sell

A treacherous trio robbed a guy on Ten Eyck Street on Jan. 26, cops said.

The 27-year-old victim said he was near Lorimer Street at 11:45 pm when the three scoundrels surrounded him.

“We will shoot you if you do not give us your phone,” one of them supposedly said, though none of them actually displayed a gun, a report says.

The victim handed over his camera, phone, $30 in cash, debit card, and driver’s license, and the threesome ran off, according to police.

Hit and run

A goon punched a man in the face and robbed him on Hooper Street on Jan. 27, police said.

The 29-year-old victim said he was between S. Second and S. Third streets at 2:40 am when three galoots sauntered over.

“If you do not give me your phone, will shoot you,” one of them supposedly said.

The victim hesitated, so one of the crooks punched him twice in the face, cops said. The victim then turned over his phone, wallet, state ID, credit and debit cards, and $12 in cash, according to a report.

Double shot

A desperado shot two young men on Graham Avenue on Jan. 31, cops said.

The victims said they were near Debevoise Street at 2:30 am when they heard two gunshots and realized they had been shot, one in the arm and one in the leg.

They ran all the way to Woodhull Medical Center, law enforcement officials said. Police checked cameras in the area, but could not find footage of the shooting, officers said.

United impersonation service

Three con artists posed as UPS drivers to invade a woman’s Flushing Avenue apartment on Jan. 31, according to a police report.

The 25-year-old victim said that she was at her abode near Bushwick Avenue at 5 pm when someone knocked on her door and identified himself as a UPS driver. She cracked the door and saw that he was wearing a UPS uniform so she opened the door farther, she said.

The three fiends then burst into her apartment with a gun and forced her into the bedroom. She told the robbers that there was cash in the dresser drawer and they took $300 and scrammed, officers said.

Police said the woman refused to cooperate with the police because she was afraid of retaliation.
