Hungry prowling

A meat-loving marauder broke into a Myrtle Avenue shop on March 14 and made himself a feast.

The business owner told cops that someone entered the shop near Clinton Avenue at around 1:40 am and prepared $500 worth of assorted meats before fleeing, according to the report.

Grab and go

Four picky punks helped themselves to a teen’s phone and headphones on Fulton Avenue on March 17.

The victim was leaving a subway station near Washington Avenue at 2:40 pm when the quartet approached him and demanded his wallet, cops said.

The teen gave the pilferers his money, but they returned it and then frisked him for something better — ultimately getting away with his smartphone and headphones, police said.

Brawl at a bar

Two brutes bashed a woman at a bar on Flatbush Avenue Extension on March 17.

The victim told police that she was at the watering hole near Dekalb Avenue just after midnight when she got in a war of words with two other patrons — but the spat turned violent when one of them lunged at her head with a glass bottle, while the punched her repeatedly in the shoulder.

Police said the victim sustained injuries to her forehead and needed stitches, according to the report.

Picking and jumping

A crew of brazen bullies attacked a teenaged boy and tried to steal his phone on Myrtle Avenue on March 10.

The teen’s mom told cops that her 15-year-old son was leaving school near Clermont Avenue around 3 pm when he was approached by four men who had attacked him before, and asked for his phone.

The bruisers then punched the boy over and over, before fleeing in an unknown direction empty-handed, according to cops.

Musty bandit

A dirty thief broke into a Myrtle Avenue variety store on March 16 and raided it for hygiene products.

The owner received an notice from the alarm company that someone broke into the store near Carlton Avenue around 8 pm.

Police arrived to the location the next day and found the store’s back entrance wall damaged, empty shelves with items strewn about, and that several bottles of deodorant body spray and some batteries were missing.

Party pooper

Some sneak-thief stole a wallet from a woman at a Lafayette Avenue club on March 16.

The victim told authorities that she went clubbing at the party place near S. Portland Avenue around 12:30 am, and hung up her purse on a hook while she tore up the dance floor.

The next day she noticed that her wallet — which contained had debit and credit cards and her driver’s licence — had vanished from her bag, and she’s pretty sure it happened while she was cutting a rug, according to a report.
