Gunpoint grab

A 16-year-old boy was arrested for robbing two men at gunpoint on Bridgewater Court on Oct. 20 — taking an iPhone, headphones, and cash.

The victims told police they were sitting at an outdoor table near Brighton Second Street at 10:30 pm when the suspect and two other men approached, telling them to put their heads down on the table, or they’d be shot. The suspect and his accomplices then looted the vicitm’s pockets, cops said.

When the suspect was apprehended, the arresting officers recovered the vicitm’s cellphone from his pockets, cops said.

Knife to meet you

Door jam

Police arrested two men, ages 37 and 55, and a 40-year-old woman who they say threatened a man’s life and damaged the door to his W. Seventh Street home on Oct. 16.
