A disabled woman was robbed of her handbag by a purse snatcher and a Rollerblading teen on July 12.

The 55-year-old woman was walking on Fulton Street, near Bridge Street, when a woman approached on foot and snatched the victim’s purse right off her walker.

When the woman attempted to retrieve the purse, the thief tossed it over to a teenage boy on Rollerblades, who skated away.

The bag had contained $400.

Swiped cards

A thief made off with stash of valuable trading cards last month from an Atlantic Avenue store.

The teenager snatched two binders full of Yu-Gi-Oh cards while the store’s clerk was organizing them. The clerk gave chase, but lost the game-loving teen as he made of with $3,000 in fantasy dueling cards.

Police said the thief was a regular at the store, which is near the corner of Smith Street, and has been identified.

Beat up!

A teenager was attacked and beaten by two men near the corner of the Hoyt and Fulton streets on July 7.

The teen was approached by the men, who began punching him in the face without warning, police said. They did not rob him, and he told cops that he had no prior beef with his assailants.

The beating left him with broken bones around his eye and abrasions on his face.

Missing moto

A man’s motorcycle was stolen on July 10 while he was in court.

The man told police that he had parked the 2007 Kawasaki at Smith and Schermerhorn streets before heading into the courthouse. When the 33-year-old returned, the $15,000 bike was gone.


This thief not only took the jewelry, but the evidence, too.

After taking a man’s expensive gold chain — last seen on a desk inside a Willoughby Street office building — the crook then took the footage of the crime right out of the DVD recorder that had just captured it.

The rose gold chain and cross, valued at $8,000, went missing about about 2 pm from the building, which is near Jay Street.
