Hairy situation

Cops cuffed two women who they say punched another lady and pulled her hair in a Columbia Street building on Dec. 30.

The 43-year-old victim told cops she and the two suspects were having an argument in the lobby of the building near Dwight Street at about 5 pm, when the spat escalated and the pair allegedly pulled her down to the ground and pulled her hair.

The two suspects allegedly punched her, bruising on her face and arms and leaving a small cut on her back, according to a report.


Police arrested an 18-year-old guy for possession of a loaded gun inside a building on Hoyt Street on Dec. 28.

Officers say they responded to the building between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street at about 10:50 pm and heard two gunshots, then saw three men run down from the roof. A 9mm pistol allegedly fell out of one of the suspect’s sweatshirt pockets and cops put him in handcuffs.

Bad karma

A reprobate choked a woman and swiped her phone on Richard Street on Jan. 2.

The 32-year-old victim was trying to stop an argument between the good-for-nothing and another woman near Visitation Place at about 9:30 am, but instead the lout choked her and then grabbed her Samsung Galaxy 6, officials said.

Swiped from the stoop

A crook swiped a package of household goods from outside a building on Fourth Place on Dec. 27, police said.

The jerk picked up the Amazon pantry box from in front of the building between Clinton and Henry streets at about 1:55 pm and left, according to authorities.

Big break-in

A burglar made off with a woman’s laptop and ring from her Clinton Street home on Dec. 22, police said.

The 45-year-old victim told police she believes the intruder entered her home between State Street and Atlantic Avenue while she was at work in the afternoon, and stole her Apple laptop, Bose sound track and docking device, an expensive family ring, and a phone charger. There was no signs of forced entry, police said.
