76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Scooted out of there

A nogoodnik grabbed two scooters from outside a home on Union Street sometime overnight on May 21, police said.

The baddie ran off with the two Razor scooters from outside the home between Van Brunt and Columbia streets sometime between 8 pm and 6:15 am the next day, according to authorities.

Whacked with wood

A cur hit a woman with a wooden plank inside a store on Henry Street on May 30, police said.

The malefactor hit the 25-year-old woman on her left foot when she asked the punk to return money she had lent her inside the store between Huntington and W. Ninth streets at about noon, officials said.

The baddie fled the store, but the victim knows who she is, according to authorities.

Slashed

Cops cuffed a man for slashing another guy with a knife inside a deli on Columbia Street on May 28.

The suspect slashed him with the knife inside the store between Huntington and W. Ninth streets at about 2:45 pm, but the victim fought back in self-defense and hit him in the head with a portable speaker, according to authorities.

Police arrested the knife-wielding suspect and charged him with assault and possession of a weapon, officials said.

For baby

A jerk swiped a bunch of baby goods from a Court Street store on May 24, police said.

The baddie grabbed a box of cotton swabs, diapers, paper towels, baby food, and baby wash from the store between First and Second places at about 10:45 pm, according to authorities.

Out for lunch

A lawbreaker stole a woman’s computer and expensive jewelry from her home on President Street on May 26, police said.

The woman told police she left for lunch at noon and when she returned home between Henry and Clinton streets at 3 pm, noticed the latch on her door was missing and her Sony laptop, amethyst ring, suede jacket, gold and silver Geneva watch, and $400 were all gone, according to authorities.
