76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Jumped on Baltic

A brute punched and kicked a man on Baltic Street on March 22.

The victim told police he was walking between Bond and Hoyt streets at 9 pm when a man started punching and kicking him, causing cuts and swelling to his face.

Police said the victim was brought to the Brooklyn Hospital Center and that no arrests have been made.

Subway brawl

Cops cuffed a man who they say punched and robbed a man aboard a Manhattan-bound F train on March 30.

The victim told officers he was on the train nearing the Smith-Ninth Street station when the man punched him in the face and tried to take his bag. A witness also said the assailant threw a bottle at the victim, according to the police report.

The victim said the man fled at the station, and he realized $1,000 was missing from his bag after the ordeal, officers reported.

Police arrested a Crown Heights man in relation to the incident, charging him with robbery, assault and criminal mischief, according to officials.

Dock mischief

A bunch of good-for-nothings robbed a boat docked on the Gowanus Canal on March 31.

The victim said video footage shows three men jumping a gate and breaking into the boat on Columbia Street along the canal between 1:30 and 4:45 am. The thieves took an iPod, saws, a flashlight, and other tools, cops said.

Parking lot burglary

A jerk stole household items in the parking lot of a Beard Street furniture store on March 28.

The 74-year-old victim said she left her Toyota Rav 4 around 4:30 pm at the store on the Erie Basin, but when she returned an hour later, noticed someone had taken several items she bought at the store from the front seat.

The car was locked but there were no signs of a break-in, police said. The items included two picture frames, a USB charger, a candle, a shower curtain, and a light-up mirror, she told police.
