88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Park after dark

Two brutes pushed a women to the ground and stole her purse while she was walking through Fort Greene Park on Jan. 5, police said.

The victim was near the intersection of Myrtle and North Portland avenues at 10:10 pm when the dastardly duo took her brown bag, which contained a smartphone, a wallet, and her learner’s permit, cops stated. The thieves ran away on North Portland toward Park Avenue, according to the law.

Flash mob

A hungry mob crashed a convenience store Flatbush Avenue convenience store and grabbed candy, soda, a bag of potato chips, and a DVD on Jan. 12, police said.

When a worker tried to prevent the crowd from leaving the store near Grand Army Plaza without paying at 12:35 am, the suspects punched the man and pushed him to the floor, cops reported. Cops say they cuffed some of the wrecking crew later that night in a nearby fast-food restaurant.
