Motorino bikes

A thief stole delivery bicycles from Motorino Pizzeria on Graham Avenue this month.

The owner of the popular Neapolitan-style pie palace said that he’d parked six bicycles in the restaurant’s parking lot near Devoe Street at 7 pm on Feb. 11..

He returned a week later to find them all gone.

Powers bicycle

A perp knocked a cyclist off his wheels on Powers Street and took his cash on Feb. 20.

The cyclist was riding toward Union Avenue at 6 am when a perp jumped out behind his bike and punched him in the head. The victim fell down and the perp grabbed $150 and ran away.

UN stupid

A thief took a woman’s pocketbook in the stairway of a S. Fifth Street building on Feb. 15.

The victim told cops that she was interviewing people for the United Nations at around 3 pm and left her bag on the stairway of the building near Keap Street.

She later glanced down the hallway and saw the perp snatch the pocketbook and flee.

McD’s money

A perp slapped a 62-year-old man inside a McDonald’s restaurant before he coughed up his cash on Feb. 20.

The man was eating his dinner at 7:35 pm in the Broadway restaurant when the perp approached him and smacked him four times, demanding, “I want the money.”

The victim gave him the cash and the perp left toward Marcy Avenue.

Boerum break

A thief broke into a woman’s Boerum Street apartment on Feb. 17 and stole her phone.

He grabbed the phone and fled.
