94th Precinct

Greenpoint–Northside

Group robbery

A gang of men surrounded a woman and ripped her iPhone from her hand on Humboldt Street on June 9.

The 32-year-old victim told police she was near Conselyea Street on her way home from a bar at 5 am when six men surrounded her. One of the men grabbed her from behind and tried to pry her iPhone out of her hand.

The victim tried to struggle, but the man got away with her phone and then all of them ran northbound on Humboldt Street. The victim could not give police a good description of any of them.

Stickup

A robber stole a bounty of goodies from a man during a stickup on Driggs Avenue on June 4.

The victim told police he was near the corner of N. 12th Street at 3 am when a cretin grabbed him from behind and pointed a gun in his face.

“Pick up your bag, give me what you have.” the tough guy said.

The victim turned over his bag, which held his iPad, iPhone, passport, wallet, and credit cards.

The robber then told the 34-year-old victim to continue walking north towards N. 12th Street and Bedford Avenue, while the robber and a friend walked the other way. Police have made no arrests.

Jealous guy

Police arrested a 22-year-old man who they say attacked his ex-girlfriend on Driggs Avenue on June 6 — after she refused to show him her phone.

The victim told police that she was near Union Avenue at 8:30 pm, and was having an argument with her ex-boyfriend when he became belligerent and demanded to see her phone. She tried to slap him away and he responded by punching her in the neck and then choking her, she told police. The woman had scratches to her arm and bruises to her neck.

Child injured

A mother was charged with assault for allegedly beating her 3-year-old son with a bowl on N. Sixth Street on June 3.

Police went to the victim’s home between Havemeyer and Roebling streets at 8 pm after learning of the possible assault. Police reported that the mother had slammed a bowl down on the boy’s head, cutting it.

The boy went to the hospital, where doctors gave him seven staples to his head and his 36-year-old mother was arrested.

Bounced

A bouncer punched a patron in the face, breaking his jaw, during a melee at a Meserole Avenue nightclub on June 2.

The victim told police he was outside the nightclub between Guernsey and Lorimer streets at 2 am when his friends got into an argument. One of the bouncers stepped in, and punched the victim in the face, breaking his jaw and cutting his head.

Police are searching for the bouncer.

Flying chair monster

A woman who was a bystander to a fight in a N. Fourth Street restaurant on June 9 ended up getting hit in the arm by a flying chair and suffering bruising and pain.

The victim told police that she was sitting in the eatery between Bedford and Driggs avenues at 2:07 am when she saw some other patrons fighting, and suddenly, the chair went flying.

The flying chair caused pain and bruising to the woman’s arm. There is a camera on the scene but police could not determine who threw the chair.
