Subway attack

A pair of punks attacked a Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker and stole her bag and phone inside the Jay Street-MetroTech subway station on Feb. 11.

The worker was returning to her booth at the station near Willoughby Street at 6 am when the villains punched her, grabbed her bag from her left shoulder, as well as phone from her hand, and fled, cops said.

A bridge too far

A crook robbed a guy as he was walking onto the Manhattan Bridge by Sands Street on Feb. 4.

The victim was strolling near Jay Street at around 9 pm when the thief approached him and took his wallet, credit cards, $200, and fled, police said.

Up the fire escape

Police arrested a man who they say stole $11,500 worth of stuff from a Bond Street apartment after sneaking in via the fire escape on Feb. 7.

The suspect allegedly crept up the fire escape of the building by Pacific Street sometime between 9 pm and the next morning and took three Mac laptops, earrings, and bracelets, according to a report.

Silver and bold

A pair of baddies held up a Smith Street store and made off with silver antique jewelry on Feb. 19.

A worker told the police two robbers stormed behind the counter, put a bag to her head, and told her to get down. One of the jerks then opened the display case and removed the jewelry, and the duo fled with their loot, authorities said.

Out of the bag

Some filcher lifted a woman’s wallet out of her backpack inside the Hoyt-Schermerhorn subway station on Feb. 10.

The victim was boarding a Clinton Hill-bound A train at 9:15 pm when she felt a bump and tug on her backpack on her shoulder, a report said. She then checked her bag and found that her wallet, containing $124, was gone, according to authorities.

Reasonable discourse

Joe from Bushwick says:
No such thing as a Clinton hill bound a train. After Hoyt is nostrand age, which is bed stuy. Maybe you could at least look at a subway map or are you writing from India?
