76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Chivalry IS dead

Cops are on the lookout for two teenage boys who they said assaulted a classmate at a Baltic Street high school on March 23, cops said.

The assault at the school between Smith and Court streets happened after the girl, 15, tried to break up a fight between the two galoots, according to a report. In the scrum, one of the 15-year-old boys punched the girl in the right side of the face while the other teen punched her in the back of the head, police said.

The victim was transported to New York Methodist Hospital, a report said.

There for the taking

A sneak exploited an unlocked door to enter and rob a Cheever Place apartment sometime between March 15 and March 24, according to a report.

The victim left the apartment between Kane and Degraw streets on March 15, and returned home at 8 am on March 24 to find that an intruder had crept off with a black medical bag, a handful of tanktops, and two bracelets, cops said.

The woman had left her home unlocked, according to a report.

Vanishing act

A thief made off with a bicycle and its gear from the hallway of a Baltic Street apartment building on March 22, police said.

The victim last saw the two-wheeler at the building between Court and Smith streets shortly after midnight, and later that day, at 3:30 pm, found the black-and-purple Specialized bike, valued at $860, had vanished along with a helmet, a water bottle, and some toe clips, according to a report.

Shakedown

A thief perhaps looking to bulk up swiped $1,129 worth of nutritional shakes from a parked truck in a Gowanus lot sometime between March 15 and March 18, cops said.

The white 2005 Chevrolet truck belonging to a surgical supply company was parked in a lot at the corner of Fourth and Hoyt streets when the hungry sneak broke in and swiped dozens of boxes of vanilla and strawberry Ensure nutritional drinks, according to a report.

Armed. Dangerous?

Cops collared a man who they said was trespassing in a Clinton Street fenced-off private yard and carrying stolen property and a knife on March 18, according to a report.

The arresting officer noticed the alleged blade-toter on private property at Carroll Street at 1:15 pm, and when he searched him found stolen loot and a shiv, according to a report.

Cops arrested the 53-year-old man and charged him with criminal possession of a deadly weapon, possession of stolen property, petty larceny, and trespassing, a report said.
