Southside–Bushwick

Hungry games

A hungry robber stole two teens’ phones at gunpoint on Leonard Street on May 14.

The 15- and 14-year-old boys were stitting on a park bench near Boerum Street at 7:55 am, when the thug approached them, flashed his gun, and said, “Don’t get up, don’t move,” the victims told police.

Then, the suspect asked what they had in their pockets, telling them, “You know how hard it is to make money on the street, I am always hungry,” as he took their phones.

Break a leg

Three violent thugs roughed up a 22-year-old — stabbing his leg three times on Driggs Avenue on May 20.

The man was near Grand Street at 4:10 pm when the ruffians jumped him, he told cops. A friend brought him to Woodhull Hosptial where he was treated for his wounds.

Teenage nightmare

Two teens robbed a 13-year-old boy at gunpoint on Morgan Avenue on May 15.

The victim told police he was near Harrison Place at noon, when the teens approached him.

“Where are you going?” One asked when the victim tried to leave. He didn’t answer, so they followed him and one pointed a gun at his chest and said, “Give me everything you have.”

The victim gave up his handheld video game and they ran away.

Umbrella attack

A thug hit an 18-year-old woman and a 17-year-old man with an umbrella on Marcy Avenue on May 15.

The victims told police they were leaving their apartment near S. Third Street at 10 am when the lunatic swung the umbrella at them.

Boerum burglaries

A thief stole jewelry and several computers from two Boerum Street apartments on May 14.

One tenant left his apartment between Graham and Manhattan avenues at 9:45 am, but when he returned three hours later, his iPad and two computers were missing, he reported to police.

A second tenant upstairs said she left her apartment at 8:30 am, but when she returned at 6:50 pm, her computer, iPod, and $9,000 engagement ring were gone.

iGone

A thief stole an iPhone — right out of a man’s hands — on Graham Avenue on May 20.

The victim was near Cook Street at 6 pm when the perp yanked the phone from his hands and ran away, the victim told cops.

Ring removed

A crook stole a ring, a watch, and a camera from a Havemeyer Street apartment sometime between May 18 and 20.

The tenant left her apartment near N. Eighth Street on May 18 at 8 am, but when she returned at noon on May 20, her bedroom window was broken and her property was gone, she told police.

Graham computers

Someone stole three laptops and several computer accessories from a Graham Avenue apartment on May 14.

The tenants told police they left their apartment near Cook Street at 5:15 pm, but when they returned five hours later, their stuff was gone.

Scooter stolen

A crook stole a man’s scooter parked on Seigel Street on May 19.

The owner parked his motor bike near Graham Avenue at 2 am, but when he returned at noon, it was gone.
