88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Kramer he ain’t

An intruder burst into a Lefferts Place apartment on June 25, swiping a wallet from the victim, cops said.

The sneak busted his way into the pad between Classon and Grand avenues at 12:20 pm by forcing open the door, surprising the resident who was home at the time, according to a report.

The victim asked the stranger “Can I help you?” to which the brazen robber answered, “Yeah,” before grabbing the man’s wallet and fleeing to parts unknown, cops said.

Home service

Cops in Fort Greene collared an alleged brute who they say attacked them as the officers served a warrant on the man’s Monument Walk home on June 22, according to a report.

Police were searching the 22-year-old man’s apartment between Park and Myrtle avenues on an unspecified warrant and had instructed the guy to steer clear, but the suspect repeatedly tried to enter the apartment to obstruct the search, cops said.

As an officer attempted to cuff the allegedly disorderly man he punched one cop in the face and scratched another, a report said.

Caught him

Cops busted a man after he allegedly tried to pass a fraudulent check at a Fulton Street cashing center on June 26, according to a report.

The alleged fraudster attempted to pass off a payroll check for $1,785 at a business between Washington and Waverly avenues at 5:25 pm, but a suspicious clerk deemed the check to be a fake, cops said.

Officers cuffed the alleged huckster at the scene and charged him with fraud and grand larceny, a report said.
