76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

No gun for you

Quick-thinking cops nabbed an armed man after spotting him with a gun tucked into his waistband on Columbia Street on Jan 1, police reported.

Officials say the suspect was standing near the corner of Lorraine Street around 2:10 am when officers on patrol caught a glimpse of the pistol.

The guy made like the wind when he saw police had spotted him, but the officers apprehended him around the corner on Bush Street and confiscated a .38 caliber revolver he carried, according to police.

Shopping spree

Some young thieves stole clothes from a hip clothing store on Atlantic Avenue on Dec. 30, cops said.

They walked into the store near Clinton Street around 1:40 pm. They grabbed hats, pants, jeans, underwear, and sweatshirts all together worth $400 and ran out the front door towards Court Street with the goods, according to police.

Hospital trip

Police arrested a woman who they say sent a man to the hospital during a fight outside a Smith Street bar on Jan. 3, police said.

The two got into a spat outside the bar on the corner of Butler Street after last call, or around 4:30 am, according to police.

At one point during the altercation, the woman grabbed a heavy object and whacked the man across the head, slicing such a gash in his head that police called paramedics to bring him to New York Methodist Hospital for treatment.

Fight leads to arrest

Police cuffed two men who they say beat up a teen on the platform of the Smith Street-Ninth Street G train subway station on Dec. 30.

The two men, age 21 and 40, got into a fight with the kid at around 2:34 am at the station near Smith and Ninth streets, police said. They allegedly gave the youngster some cuts and bruises to his face and body, but emergency responders patched him up on the scene.

Bike bandit

Someone stole a man’s bike left on Court Street on Dec. 29 while he was shopping at a grocery store, police said.

The man told police he locked his bike up with a metal chain near Atlantic Avenue at 12:30 pm. He was in the store for about an hour and came out to find both the chain and his bike missing.
