Fort Greene–Clinton Hill
A woman asked a man she met in a classifieds site to meet up with her on Park Avenue on Feb. 22, and then pulled out a gun and robbed him along with two accomplices.
The guy met the crook on the website Backpage and she told him her name was Ashley, according to a report. She asked him to meet her near Carlton Avenue around 1:30 am, and when he pulled up in his car, whipped out a gun, demanding “Open all your doors,” authorities said.
Two other punks jumped in and made him drive around, telling him to empty his pockets. First, they took $30 and his iPhone 6 and then made him drive to a location in Manhattan, where they stole $400. Finally, they told him to go back to Brooklyn and snatched $200 from him, cops said.
A baddie stole a guy’s phone he used to take pictures of her and her noisy friends to document how they woke him up in the middle of the night in his Grand Avenue apartment building on Feb. 21.
The victim told police he was awoken by a loud noise in his building near Fulton Street at 1 am and went to investigate. He found a group of women in the lobby and confronted them, using his phone to take their picture while telling them to leave, a report said.
The women followed him back upstairs and one of the boisterous ladies snatched his iPhone 7 Plus from his hand and fled, cops said.
