NYPD: Man arrested for swiping jewelry and cash from home

60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Cash crook

A 34-year-old man was arrested for robbing a Banner Avenue home on May 10 — taking jewelry and cash.

The victim told police that he was in his house between Brighton Seventh and Brighton Eighth streets at 10 am when he saw two men inside his home with more than $1,000 of his jewelry and cash.

When they saw the homeowner, the intruders fled, cops said, although the man was able to subdue one of them, recovering his jewelry and a portion of the stolen cash, as well as a crowbar and a screwdriver.

Cooper caper

A 40-year-old man was arrested for taking cable from a Neptune Avenue business on May 1.

Surveillance footage from the business between West End Avenue and Brighton 11th Street shows the suspect climbing over a fence at around 8 am, and leaving with a roll of cooper cable a short time later, cops said.

High times

A 20-year-old man was arrested for stealing a man’s headphones on Ocean Parkway on May 11 — and was also charged with drug possession after he was found with two Ziploc bags filled with marijuana, cops said.

The victim told police that he was near Brighton Beach Avenue at around 10:24 pm when the 20-year-old and four other men approached him and demanded he hand over his headphones.

The suspect then grabbed the headphones off of the victim’s head and fled with his cohorts, cops said. Officers said they found the bags of weed when the suspect was arrested.

Cat fight

Police arrested a 43-year-old woman for robbing another woman of $40 on W. 23rd Street on May 14.

The victim told police that she was between Mermaid and Surf avenues at 4:10 am when the 43-year-old grabbed her hair and began pummeling her face. The suspect then reached into the victim’s purse and removed $40 before fleeing, cops said.
