Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook
Beaten for $2
Two thugs robbed an 11-year-old boy on Henry Street on Oct. 19, but only made off with $1 each.
The victim was approaching Second Place at 12:30 pm when the teenage crooks punched him in the stomach ordered him to empty his pockets.
A thief tried to break into a First Street home on Oct. 19, but fled empty-handed when the 37-year-old homeowner opened the door and screamed at him.
The thief smashed a vestibule door window to the home between Bond and Hoyt streets at 5:20 am.
A thief plucked a cellphone from a man in the Red Hook IKEA on Oct. 16.
The victim was inside the Beard Street big box at 4:15 pm when the thief snaked his hand into the man’s jacket pocket, pinching the phone.
A thief entered a Van Dyke Street insulation and refrigeration company on Oct. 10, taking two iPads.
