Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown
Thieves are scoring more than goals in Brooklyn Bridge Park! Filchers stole two men’s bags as they were playing soccer in the green space in separate incidents this week.
• First, some snake stole a guy’s bag — containing his iPhone and credit cards — while he was kicking the ball around at Pier 5 at the foot of Joralemon Street on July 10.
The athlete told authorities he put his bag on the ground at 9 pm and went to go play, but when he returned, it was nowhere to be found.
• Then, a crook stole another footy fan’s bag — which was filled with two phones, sneakers, clothing, and credit cards — from the same spot on July 13.
The victim left his bag on the grass, played some soccer, and returned to find that his belongings had been taken, a report said.
A lout stole a man’s cellphone from his backpack as he was hanging out in a crowded Smith Street bar on July 10.
The man was having a few cold ones in the bar near Dean Street at 6 pm when he went to make a call and noticed his cellphone was missing, authorities said.
He told police he had his phone in his backpack and never took it off, but discovered that the zipper was open, according to a report.
Wheeling and stealing
A weasel crept into a Dean Street residence through a fire access door and stole a man’s bicycle on July 12.
The victim told authorities that he had stored his Cervelo R5 blue, white, and black two-wheeler in the apartment near Fourth Avenue. When he went to go check on it at 2 pm, it was nowhere to be seen, said police.
A knuckle-dragger bashed a woman in the head and slashed her arm with glass as she was sitting on a Schermerhorn Street sidewalk on July 17.
The woman was resting on the pavement near Bond Street at 5:15 pm when the goon struck her in the noggin and arm with an unidentified glass object. She later went to Brooklyn Hospital Center for her injuries.
