Bathroom robbery

A wicked woman followed another woman into the Morgan Avenue L train subway station bathroom, beat her, and took her purse on Nov. 10, cops report.

The victim said she went into an unlocked bathroom at the train stop at Harrison Place at 11:05 pm.

Another woman threw her to the ground, punched her in the stomach and face, and then ran off with her purse, which included her passport and $40 in cash.

Quick thief

Someone snatched a woman’s purse from a S. Fourth Street bar on Nov. 11.

The woman told police she was at the bar between Kent and Wythe avenues at 2 am and put her purse down for a second to snap a picture of some friends.

When she looked down to grab the pocketbook a moment later, it was gone. The bag had her credit cards, $50 cash, and a Canon Mark II camera worth $2,500, she told cops.

Gym locker burglarized

A bandit burglarized a man’s locker at a S. Sixth Street gym on Nov. 9.

When he finished his workout, he returned to his locker, only to find that his gym bag — which contained his iPhone, wallet, and credit cards — was missing.

Woman beaten

A remorseless robber beat up a woman and took off with her pocketbook while she was hailing a cab on Metropolitan Avenue on Nov. 7.

The victim told police she was between Union Avenue and Rodney Street at 3 pm when a man came up and punched her in the stomach. He then threw her to the ground, kicked her in the leg, and ran off with her purse.

She started to file a complaint, but said she works at the restaurant at the site of the robbery, and didn’t want anyone to coming to her job.

Pricey bike stolen

A rogue rode off with a $145,000 motorcycle parked on Maujer Street sometime between Nov. 6 and Nov. 9.

The victim said he left his white 2011 BMW hog in front of his house between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue on Nov. 6. When he returned three days later at 7 pm, the bike was gone.

Ungrateful passengers

Two fiendish females beat up a man and stole his car keys, phone, and $40 on Broadway on Nov. 8.

The victim told cops he met the women in Manhattan and brought them to Brooklyn to go to more clubs. When they got to Broadway and Marcy Avenue at 1:40 am, the ladies said they wanted to go to a hookah bar.

The man told them he didn’t know where to find a hookah bar, so the duo punched him in the face several times and stole his belongings.


Two men allegedly clobbered a co-worker on Franklin Avenue on Oct. 29.

The victim reported he was in a building between Wallabout Street and Flushing Avenue at 6 am when he got into an argument with two of his co-workers.

Suddenly, the dispute turned violent and the men beat him, he said, causing him to get an orbital eye fracture and a broken rib. No one was arrested.
