Horrifying home invasion on Frost Street

94th Precinct

Greenpoint–Northside

Home invasion

Two robbers posing as construction workers tied up a 73-year old woman inside her Frost Street home on June 17 and stole her cash.

The perps knocked on the door of the senior’s home near Morgan Avenue at 10:50 am, and the victim let them inside.

That’s when one perp led her into her bedroom and tied her wrists together, telling her, “Don’t worry nothing is going to happen.”

The perps grabbed $2,000 and ran away.

Subway punch

A perp punched a man on June 13 as he was about to get into the L train near N. Seventh Street and stole his cash.

The victim told police that he was near Bedford Avenue at 1:05 am when the perp asked, “What time is it?”

Then he struck the man in his face and stole his wallet.

Cig rob

Two perps beat up a man and tried to steal his laptop on Eckford Street on June 13.

The victim told police that he was near Calyer Street at 1:14 am when one perp approached him and said, “Can I have a cigarette?”

The victim said no, but another perp hit him in the head and his accomplice joined him, shouting, “Give me your bag!” before they both ran away.

Farmer’s theft

A thief stole a wallet while its owner was shopping at the McCarren Park farmers market on June 18.

Boxed in

A drunk thief broke into a Box Street apartment on June 4, and stole a laptop, skateboard, and a camera.

The building’s landlord saw the perp break into the apartment at 9 pm and settle onto the fire escape for a swig of tequila before he bolted down Manhattan Avenue.

Hi-tech crime

A thief stole a TV, computer and DVD player from a Roebling Street apartment between June 7 and June 8.
