Fort Greene–Clinton Hill


Authorities arrested a woman who allegedly pulled out a chunk of an officer’s hair and left a bald patch while she was being cuffed on Tillary Street on Sept. 22.

The officer was responding a dispute inside the facility near Prince Street at 12:50 am when the woman became highly combative towards her, a report said. When told to stop, the suspect began pulling the cop’s hair and ripped out a wad, police said.

Cops are searching for a group of four brutes who assaulted a man on Park Avenue on Sept. 18.

Some sneak broke into a Washington Avenue apartment and stole $3,000 of property while its owner was away between Sept. 6 and Sept. 17.

A pirate vandalized a Greene Avenue bodega and stole $6,000 in cash on Sept. 18.

The punk broke the glass front door of the store near Cumberland Street between 1:04 am and 2:03 am and lifted the currency, authorities said. The shop has cameras, but it is very difficult to see anything in the footage because the store lights were off, police said.
