Scoundrel robs student

A weasel robbed a student of his phone and money as he was on his way to school on E. 19th Street on March 8.

The 15-year-old told police he was near Avenue W at 9:15 am when the jerk asked to use his cellphone to make a call. The good student let him borrow his phone, but when he asked for it back, the bad guy refused and said, “How much do you want for the phone?” The punk also asked the teen for money, police stated.

The student handed over $10 and the good-for-nothing fled with the phone and money at 9:30 am, according to authorities.

Police catch bike stealer

Police cuffed a man who they say punched a guy and then stole his mountain bike on E. 12th Street on March 9 — and also had marijuana and narcotics.

The guy told police he was near Avenue R around 11:30 am when the suspect approached him from the side and demanded he hand over his Nishiki mountain bike. When the guy told him “no,” the suspect punched the guy on his neck, yelled “It’s mine now,” and then grabbed the bike and fled, according to authorities.

When police arrived, they found a plastic Ziploc bag with white skulls on it filled with marijuana and 13 films of a prescription drug used to treat adults who are dependent on opioids in the suspect’s coat pocket, police stated.

Sacrilegious scoundrel

A prowler stole money from a synagogue on E. 28th Street on March 7.

A worshiper told police that the good-for-nothing entered the place of worship near Avenue R at 12:18 am and stole $800 from three different collection boxes, and the lawbreaker also tried to break into a wall safe but was unsuccessful, police stated.

There were no signs of forced entry and the jerk left the synagogue at 12:28 am, police said.

Leaving something behind

A nogoodnik broke into a woman’s E. 23rd Street home on March 9 while she was out and stole her jewelry.

The woman told police she left her home near Avenue X to go shopping at 10:15 am. When she returned at noon, she discovered someone had broken into her home through a side entrance, and stolen her sapphire ring.

The crook left behind a small religious tchotchke, police said.

Thief takes tiles

A rascal broke into a Batchelder Street shed and stole boxes of ceramic tiles on March 11.

The victim’s friend told police the good-for-nothing kicked open the locked door of a shed in the backyard of a home near Shore Parkway around midnight.

The criminal stole the boxes of tiles and fled in a gray caravan, according to authorities.
