70th Precinct



A teenager was arrested for allegedly taking more than $3,000 worth of jewelry from an acquaintance on E. 55th Street sometime between Feb. 24 and April 15.

Officials from the Kings County district attorney’s office said the woman stole four chain bracelets, four necklaces, a diamond bracelet, a platinum chain, a gold ring, and two watches from an apartment between Remsen and Clarkson avenues, and then admitted to the victim that she had done it.

The 16-year-old was charged with third-degree grand larceny and petit larceny.


Police arrested a woman who they say robbed another woman and slashed her with a box-cutter on Flatbush Avenue on April 11.

The Kings County district attorney’s office said the violent women cornered the victim between Farragut Road and E. 28th Street at 1 am and slashed the victim several times, cutting her arm and breast, and then ran off with the victim’s purse.

The 23-year-old woman was charged with robbery, assault, grand larceny, possession of a weapon, harassment and menacing.

Repeat offender

A teenage girl was arrested after she allegedly admitted to cutting holes in ceilings and sneaking through alleyways to burglar businesses on Newkirk and Foster avenues between March 24 and April 3.

In the first incident, the teen told police that she snuck into a grocery store on Newkirk Avenue between E. 16th and E. 17th streets via a back alleyway and stole $1,600 and a variety of Nivea products.

In the second incident, she admitted that she cut a hole into the ceiling of a physical therapy office on Foster Avenue between Malborough and Rugby roads and stole a laptop, cops reported.

In the last incident, she allegedly told police that she dropped through the ceiling into a laundrymat on Newkirk Avenue between E. 16th and E. 17th streets and stole $2,000 in cash.

The teen was charged with several counts of burglary, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools.
