Cops arrested six people for allegedlt forcing their way into a Carlton Avenue apartment on March 10 and threatening the resident.

The victim told police he was in his apartment near Park Avenue at 4:50 pm when one of the suspects forced his way into his home and threatened him with a gun. Fearing for his life, the victim fled his abode to call 911, leaving the suspects in the home, according to police.

Alerted in time

Some nogoodnik broke into a Greene Avenue business on March 8 but left empty-handed.

The owner told cops that she closed her store near Carlton Avenue around 6:15 pm, then got a call from her security company alerting her that alarms were going off around 10:40 pm.

She went to check on her business and discovered that two outside doors were broken, though nothing was missing, according to the police report.

Big withdrawal

Some shyster used fraudulent checks to steal more than $22,000 from a Prince Street business between Jan. 17 and March 6.

The owner of the establishment between Flatbush and Myrtle avenues said she was checking the bank account on March 6 around 10:40 pm and discovered that someone had been making unauthorized transactions through fake checks for almost three months, according to the report.
