Cat burglar

A burglar crept into a Lafayette Avenue building and stole a laptop and $3,000 while the resident was gone on May 6.

The tenant came home to the apartment by Cumberland Street at 2:43 am and discovered her bed was thrown about and her computer and cash were missing, authorities said.


Cops are hunting for two jerks who hurled a can at a man’s face on Fleet Walk on May 1.

The 63-year-old victim was near Prince Street at 8 pm when the scofflaws threw the projectile at his face and punched him, according to a report.

A weasel lifted a laptop out of a car parked on Greene Avenue sometime overnight on April 30.

The victim told police he left his MacBook Pro in his vehicle for the night near by Adlephi Street at 9:30 pm and returned in the morning to find trash in his car and his computer vanished, police said.

Broom bash

Police arrested a woman who they say struck a man with a broom while they were in a fight in a DeKalb Avenue store on May 6.

The suspect was having a verbal argument with the man by St. Felix Street at 5:30 pm when she picked up the broom and hit the guy on the right hand, police said.
