Midnight rambler

A sleeping man awoke just after the witching hour on March 22 to find a man burglarizing his West Ninth Street duplex, proving there’s no rest for the wicked or the weary.

The noisy criminal jarred the man, 34, at 12:05 am with ruckus from the bottom floor of the duplex between Smith and Court streets. The homeowner ran from his bedroom to see the thief bounding up a spiral staircase and out the front door with his laptop and watch.

Great escape

A burglar quickly plucked a few hot commodities from a woman’s President Street home while she was there on March 23.

The invader apparently invaded the home, which is between Smith and Court streets, via the fire escape, at around 10:15 am. The victim, 47, was in the basement and heard footsteps, but by the time she clambered upstairs, the crook had fled with her wallet, containing $200, her iPhone, and Apple laptop.

Wide open

A hooligan stole a laptop and cellphone indiscreetly left inside a parked commercial van on Garnet Street on March 23.

The driver, 35, told cops that he had parked the 2007 Dodge between Court and Smith streets at 10:05 am. When he returned just one half-hour later, the computer and mobile phone that he had left on the front console were gone.

Triple threat

A menacing troika of troublemakers beat up a man near the corner of Woodhull and Henry streets on March 21.

One third of the trio bashed the victim, 50, in the face, which felled him to pavement at 12:20 am. Then his partners rifled through the downed man’s pockets, taking his wallet that contained $200 and his Salvadoran ID.
