Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown
A 32-year-old urinated all over costly clothing inside a Downtown department store on Dec. 11, investigators claim.
Police cuffed a suspect accused of ruining more than $1,500 of garb inside the Fulton Mall shop between Gallatin Place and Hoyt Street at around 9:48 pm.
The suspect — who faces charges of criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, exposure, and “throwing or dropping offensive matters into streets and public places” — admitted to relieving himself on the clothing, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
Police arrested a 44-year-old man accused of repeatedly stealing cash inside a Flatbush Avenue office.
Investigators allege that the suspected thief grabbed that $530 from a drawer inside the building between Nevins and Livingston streets at around 10 am on Dec. 6— and a witness claims the same perp grabbed $20 from the drawer on Dec. 14.
A crook asked a passerby for change — then grabbed the cash out of the woman’s hand and fled on Nov. 26.
The thief snatched $80 from the victim’s grasp on Gallatin Place near the Fulton Mall at around 12:45 pm and dashed away.
Police later apprehended a 25-year-old suspect.
