Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Subway scoundrel

A knave socked a senior in the face inside a train station near Flatbush Avenue on March 27, police said.

The 67-year-old victim told police she was waiting for a subway near Fulton Street at about 7 pm when the nogoodnik punched her in the right side of her face and then fled, according to authorities.

Employee revenge

Some crook broke into a storage facility inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard sometime overnight on March 20 and stole a bunch of tools, cops said.

The baddie smashed the glass security gate with a rock to get into the facility on Flushing Avenue sometime between March 29 at about 6 am and the next day a little before 7 am, police said.

The cur, who could have been a former employee fired two months ago, swiped thousands worth of tools, including a hammer and drill, and spray painted a bunch of clothing and food containers, according to authorities.

Bye, bye, bicycle

A baddie stole a guy’s electric bike parked on Fulton Street while he was making deliveries on March 26, police said.

The 33-year-old victim told cops he was out making deliveries on his Arrow-9 Electric bike when he locked it up to a rack near Washington Avenue at about 3 pm. But when he came back out about 20 minutes later, it was gone, according to authorities.

Pick-pocketing in the park

A scoundrel swiped a teen’s cellphone from his pant pocket near Fort Greene Park on March 29, police said.

The 15-year-old told police he was walking near DeKalb Avenue at about 3:45 pm when the creep followed him and snatched his iPhone from his back pocket and then ran into the green space toward Myrtle Avenue.

The baddie told the teen he had a gun but didn’t display one, according to authorities.

Grab and go

A snake snatched a woman’s headphones from her head while on a moving train near Fulton Street, police said.

The malefactor grabbed the 23-year-old victim’s Beats Solo headphones from her head on the Manhattan-bound C train near Washington Avenue at about 10:20 am, cops said. Transit authorities detained the jerk at the Fulton Street station, but he fled, according to authorities.
