78th Precinct

Park Slope


Cops arrested a worker at a Flatbush Avenue chain store for allegedly stealing more than $6,000 worth of iPhones from his employer in a spree beginning on May 2.

A manager told police the suspect, who worked at the retailer near Atlantic Avenue, nabbed six top-of-the-line smartphones over the course of several weeks, ending on May 19, after which he was arrested the following day.

Have a beer

Cops have given up the hunt for the wacko who hurled a beer bottle at a man’s face at a Flatbush Avenue bar on May 21.

The victim told police he was inside the watering hole between Bergen Street and Sixth Avenue at 1:30 am, when the glass bottle suddenly sailed through the air and broke in his face.

The villain who tossed the bottle fled immediately after the assault, and the victim was taken to New York Methodist Hospital for treatment, cops said.

Party perp

Some jerk stole a woman’s pricey necklace and cash at a party she hosted in her Sixth Street apartment on May 14.

The victim told police she was partying it up inside her rental between Fourth and Fifth avenues beginning at 11 am, and it wasn’t until about seven hours later that she discovered her Tiffany necklace and cash was stolen.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s Cannondale bicycle he left on Seventh Avenue on May 16.

The victim told police he parked his bike between Seventh and Eighth streets at 1:30 pm, and returned about three hours later to find his ride stolen.

Oh, baby!

A 40-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stealing baby monitors from a Flatbush Avenue chain store on May 9.

A worker told police the suspect was inside the retailer near Atlantic Avenue at 2:03 pm, when he nabbed three of the one-way walky-talkies and fled through a fire exit.

Store security caught the whole thing on video surveillance, however, and police arrested their suspect just over a week later, cops said.
