Barking mad

Cops are hunting a thief who stole a pricey rose gold dog chain from a Greene Avenue apartment between July 18 and July 20.

The victim thinks she left the door of her residence between Bedford and Nostrand avenues open at 7:45 am — and discovered a sneak had taken the 18-inch chain — estimated at more than $4,000 — at 10 pm two days later, according to a report.


A creep stabbed a woman with scissors on Clifton Place on July 19.

The victim was by Grand Avenue at 3:15 pm when the bruiser sliced her, she told police. She was taken to Methodist Hospital, where she is expected to recover, a report said.


Some ruffian bashed a guy in the head with a metal chair on Prince Street on July 20.

The man was minding his own business by Tillary Street at 10:30 am when the jerk struck him with the chair and cut his forehead, according to cops.

In the night

A burglar broke into a Grand Avenue apartment and stole a woman’s laptop and phone while she was asleep on July 19.

The weasel cut the screen to the front window of the residence by Park Avenue between 12:05 am and 6:15 am and lifted her MacBook Pro and iPhone, she told police. The woman was asleep, but her roommates told cops they heard someone walking around but thought it was her.

Bad day at work

A filcher crept into a Lefferts Place home and stole a guy’s belongings while he was at work on July 20.

The victim told authorities he left for his job at 10 am and returned to find that his Canon DSLR camera, Steven Alan backpack, cash, and loose change jar had been taken. Police were unable to immediately identify how the thief got in.

Reasonable discourse

Joey C. from Clinton Hills says:
Rose Gold Dog Collar was weird - Greene Ave. between Bedford and Nostrand is way out of the 88th Precinct. Why were they handling it?
