Masked villains hold up phone store on Bedford

94th Precinct


Phoning it in

A pair of masked robbers stormed into a Bedford Avenue phone store on Jan. 9 and robbed it, officers said.

The manager of the store near N. 10th Street said that the two desperados stormed in at 7:43 pm and one pointed a black gun at him and customers and demanded that they all go to the back office.

The dastardly duo then ordered the manager to put the items into a black laundry bag and to stay in the office until they had left, according to a report.

Day at the office

Burglars broke into a woman’s McGuinness Boulevard apartment on Jan. 6 and stole her property, cops said.

The victim said she was away from her home between Norman and Meserole avenues from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, and when she returned, she found her Chanel Maxie, cellphone, video game system, and Rolex watch all missing.

Monetary lapse

A woman left her purse at a Bedford Avenue bar on Jan. 2, but when she went back to find it, it was gone, according to the authorities.

The woman said she went to the watering hole at 3 am and set her purse on the hook, then left a few minutes later without it.

She realized it was gone and came back to the night-spot at about 4 am, but her purse, which contained her phone, credit card, debit card, license, and cash, was nowhere to be found.

Side eyes

A malefactor stole the side mirrors off of a parked car on Manhattan Avenue on Jan. 1, police said.

The victim said he parked his car between Leonard Street and Driggs Avenue at 3:30 am, and when he came back at 11 am, he found that both of the mirrors had been broken off and stolen.
