Greenpoint–Northside

Frost-y reception

A crew of toughs stabbed a man as he was walking down Frost Street on March 7 authorities stated.

The victim told police he was walking between Kingsland and Morgan avenues on his way to a friend’s house at 3:50 am when the posse approached him and a galoot stabbed him once in the stomach with a sharp object.

The louts did not try to steal anything and all ran off, cops said. Emergency services took the victim to Elmhurst Hospital, according to police.

Cable sly

A burglar broke into a cable company’s van parked on Paige Avenue on Feb. 28 and stole all of the tools out of it, cops said.

A company representative reported that the van was parked between McGuinness Boulevard and a dead end from 6 that night until 8:30 am the next day. When the driver arrived, he found that the tools had all been stolen but no damage had been done to the vehicle, according to a report.

Mystery visit

Two intruders broke into a Manhattan Avenue home on March 6, but didn’t take anything, according to police.

The victim said he had just arrived at his house between Skillman and Jackson streets at 6:30 pm when he saw two burglars crawl out of the back window of his first-floor apartment.

He said he had left the window locked, but that the window can be pushed open. The victim did not notice any of his property missing, cops stated.

Nab-sack

A wily robber snatched the backpack off of a man as he was walking down N. Seventh Street on March 1, cops said.

The victim, who talked to police via a Japanese interpreter, said he was at the corner of Meeker Avenue at 11:30 pm when the thief ran up behind him and grabbed his book bag.

The robber scrammed with the Samsung galaxy phone and the rest of the knapsack’s contents in tow, a report says.
