88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Walking nightmare

A goon robbed a woman as she walking home on Fulton Street on Dec. 18.

The victim said she was strolling home at 11:25 pm near St. James Place when a very tall man wearing dark clothing approached her and hissed, “Run your pockets.”

He then snatched her cellphone and her purse, which contained credit cards and her identification card, and fled, police reported.

Pistol whipped

A gun-toting miscreant gave a good Samaritan a whack on the head when he tried to break up a fight at an Atlantic Avenue restaurant on Jan. 3.

The do-gooder told police he tried to stop a fight inside of an eatery near S. Portland Avenue at 1 am. But when he attempted to step in, one of the nogoodniks started pistol whipping him in the back of the noggin with a gun, causing cuts to his head, according to reports.

Never day delivery

Some weasel snagged packages from a United States Postal Service vehicle when it was parked on Waverly Avenue on Dec. 30.

The driver told police he parked his truck near Myrtle Avenue at 5:45 pm, but when he returned less than an hour later, he discovered his driver-side window had been opened and multiple packages had been stolen.

Biked away

A bandit rode off with a stolen bike on Saint Felix Street on Dec. 31.

The victim told cops she locked her bike on a rack by Lafayette Avenue at 1:30 pm, but when she returned for her twilight ride at 4:50 pm, the wheels, along with her helmet and lock, were nowhere to be found.
