84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Checked out

A woman who met a man in a bodega and was invited to accompany him to his Willoughby Street home robbed him of $19,000 worth of jewelry on April 16.

The victim and his friend met the lady at the corner grocery store around 8 pm and invited her back to his apartment near Duffield Street to hang out, according to a report. His friend left a couple hours later, leaving the woman alone with him.

The victim then fell asleep and he woke up in the morning to discover she had left and taken the jewelry that was on the counter — including a $10,000 bracelet — with her.

Made his point

A brute flashed a knife at a man on Livingston Street on April 17 and demanded his phone.

The victim was on his way to work near Bond Street at around 11 am when the creep tapped him on the shoulder, showed him the blade in his backpack, and then growled, “Give me your phone,” authorities said. He handed over his phone and the lout fled, according to cops.

Senior scuffle

Cops cuffed a guy who they say tried to snatch a 63-year-old man’s phone out of his hands as he was sitting on a Manhattan-bound A train at Hoyt-Schermerhorn streets station on April 18.

The senior was seated aboard the subway around 12:30 am when the suspect grabbed his phone as the door opened, police said. The man was able to grab the guy’s jacket to hold him back and they got into a small scuffle, with both of them falling to the ground, officers reported.

The suspect got free and fled, but authorities tracked him down and slapped handcuffs on him, according to a report.

Slashed

Some bruiser cut a guy’s neck with an unknown object while he was inside a Fulton Street restaurant on April 22.

The victim told police he was in the eatery near Pearl Street at 10:20 pm when the nogoodnik slashed him in the left side of the neck, according to police.

Wine and crime

A crew of looters broke into a Water Street eatery and stole five bottles of Sauvignon Blanc on April 17.

The five crooks entered the establishment near Old Fulton Street at 2:45 am and lifted $140 worth of the white wine, authorities said.
