Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Despicable duo

Two thugs punched a man in the face and stole his money on Columbia Street on Feb. 15.

The 49-year-old victim said he was near West Ninth Street when two teens began pummeling him, and then rudely removing $120 from his pockets.

Officer Pedro Jiminian quickly caught up with the pair, arresting the 18- and 19-year-old cohorts.

Unwelcome entry

Someone burglarized a Tompkins Place home overnight on Feb. 17.

Cops said they were not certain whether the victim was present when the sneaky creep entered the home, located near Kane Street, through a front door that was left open between 11:45 pm on Feb. 17 and 8 am the next day. The cat burglar made off with a wallet containing $200 and assorted credit cards.

Apple picker

A dope with a taste for high-end electronics burglarized a Fourth Place home on Feb. 18.

The 38-year-old victim said she left her home, located near Clinton Street, at 9:15 am, and when she returned at around 6:45 pm, she discovered a rear window ajar.

The creep made off with her Apple laptop valued at $1,200, along with an Apple iPod worth $350.
