88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Bad date

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.

Flash and flee

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.

Pedaled away

There were a spate of bike thefts in the 88th Precinct this week. Here’s the rundown:

• A pedal pincher stole an expensive bike chained to a Willoughby Avenue street sign on Feb. 21.

The owner secured her Navara bike to the sign near Waverly Avenue at 11:15 am and when she returned about 20 minutes later, it was gone, authorities said.

• A weasel lifted a two-wheel ride by sawing off its lock on DeKalb Avenue on Feb. 25.

The victim told police he left his Hyland Civia locked up near Flatbush Avenue at 3 pm and came back at 6:50 pm to find it had disappeared, cops said.

Smash and cash

A burglar broke into a Cumberland Street apartment on Feb. 24 and stole $900.

The resident told police he left his abode near Park Avenue at 10 am and came back just past midnight to find that a filcher had broken his bedroom window, rifled through his luggage, and lifted the wad of cash, according to a report.
