77th Precinct

Prospect Heights


A ruffian punched an older man on Vanderbilt Avenue on Feb. 26.

The 61-year-old victim told cops he was between St. Marks Avenue and Bergen Street at 8 pm when the thug popped him in the face — giving him a bloody nose and a swollen eye — before fleeing.

Rear window robberies

Thieves stuck Vanderbilt Avenue, robbing two apartments in a building between Bergen and Dean streets on Feb. 27.

• A 27-year-old victim of one of the apartments told cops that he left for work at 6:45 am, and returned at 7 pm to find his laptop, computer, and video games gone. He said one rear window had been left unlocked.

• The 40-year-old victim of the second apartment told cops he left for work at 10:30 am, and returned at 4:15 pm to find his front door jammed — and his computer and camera gone. The thief had also apparently entered through the rear window, cops said.
