Gunman raid Flatlands Ave. office

Office raid

Two gunman charged into a Flatlands Avenue office on March 10, taking $170.

Workers at the store told police that the thieves vaulted over the counter and kicked in the office door at 12:48 pm before robbing the employees inside.

High stakes heists

Two days after the above robbery, two suspects robbed a second Flatlands Avenue store, this time taking $250.

Workers say that the thieves entered the store at 8 pm on March 12, brandishing firearms. They went around the counter, taking money from the register.

It was unclear if the two robberies were related by late Tuesday.

Shot down

A gunman opened fire on a 28-year-old on Flatlands Avenue on March 8, wounding him.

Witnesses said that the gunman let loose a barrage of bullets at 3 am near E. 56th Street, hitting his victim in the neck, back and arm. The victim was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, cops said.

Shoved out

A wayward motorist — possibly a dollar van driver — left a 33-year-old man hospitalized on March 12 after he forced his victim out of his van while driving near the corner of Avenue I and Utica Avenue.

Witnesses said the victim was thrown out of the van at 9:10 pm. The victim was knocked unconscious and rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he remained in the intensive care over the weekend, cops said.

Cut for cash

A 19-year-old goon sliced a young woman with a knife on March 11 during a bloody mugging on E. 63rd Street in Bergen Beach.

The thief cut the woman’s forehead during the 3:20 am scuffle — only to be arrested a short time later.

Too fresh

A 33-year-old woman was arrested last week for unloading a canister of Febreeze spray on her disgruntled husband, irritating his eyes.

The alleged attack took place in the couple’s E. 53rd Street home back on Feb. 4, but the would-be crime wasn’t reported until recently. The 33-year-old was charged with assault.

Five on one

A crew of thugs jumped a 17-year-old on Fillmore Avenue on March 11, leaving him with a smattering of injuries.

The victim said he was nearing Flatbush Avenue at 2:13 pm when the suspects — all between 14- and 16-years-old — attacked.

Shot in car

A gunman opened fire on a car in an E. 51st Street parking lot on March 8, striking the motorist inside.

Gunshots were heard at 7:25 am in a small parking lot between Avenues I and J, witnesses told police. The victim, who was not named, was hit, but not seriously injured.

No pain

A gun-toting thug raided a Quentin Road pharmacy on March 3, taking an assortment of pain medications.

The thief barrelled into the store at 5:50 pm, ordering a worker to lay down on the floor as he put the pain medication in a white bag.

Gunning for cash

A pistol-packing perp jumped a 43-year-old man on E. 58th Street on March 3, taking $180.

The victim told police that he knew the thief who pistol-whipped and robbed him during the 3:10 am exchange that happened near Avenue I.
