Miscreant holds up hotel guest for cash with Taser

84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown


Some scofflaw threatened to use a Taser on a man staying at an Adams Street hotel on June 14 if he didn’t hand over his cash in.

The victim told police he answered a knock at his door in the lodge near Jay Street at 9 pm and was met by a woman who pulled out the weapon and snarled, “Give me your money.”

He handed over his MacBook and $300 and she fled without giving him a shock, authorities said.


Two thieves lifted 15 designer frames from a Court Street eyewear store by stuffing them in their dresses on June 14.

The pair of punks stole five Bulgari and 10 Versace frames from the display case, hid them in their dresses, and fled, around 9 pm, according to a report.

Free ride

A sneak stole 50 monthly MetroCards for students from a huge batch of the passes in a Downtown management office on June 2.

The person who reported the crime told cops the office received a delivery of 800 MetroCards from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority on May 13, and a staff member who was invoicing the subway passes on June 2 noticed that 50 — a total of $605 — were missing.

The cards are usually kept in a safe and distributed on a daily basis to students, according to the reporter.
