Rough and tumble

Cops cuffed a guy for swiping two sweaters from a clothing chain store on Albee Square on Jan. 8.

An employee at the store near DeKalb Avenue spotted the suspect trying to leave at about 3:30 pm with the pair of white sweaters, and tried to stop him, officials said. The suspect pretended to cooperate but then tried to take off again and started wrestling with the employee, kicking and flailing his arms, according to authorities.

Bye, bye, bike

A pair of malefactors stole a guy’s bike from his apartment garage on Bridge Street on Jan. 10, police said.

The victim told police the baddies followed him inside the garage near Water Street at about 10 pm and stole his specialized hybrid bike, according to authorities.

Package pilferer

Some punk stole a bunch of packages left outside a bar on Hoyt Street on Jan. 12, police said.

The jerk swiped three packages, one with an Apple iPhone inside, at about 4:20 pm, according to authorities.

In the blink of an eye

Some good-for-nothing stole a woman’s wallet while she was shopping at a grocery store on Gold Street on Jan. 7, police said.

The woman told police she was shopping in the market near DeKalb Avenue at about 4:30 pm when she realized her wallet, with four credit cards inside, was gone. A few minutes later one of her card companies called to alert her that someone fraudulently used one, police said.

Poached pack

Some crook stole a woman’s backpack while she was shopping inside a clothing store on Fulton Street on Jan. 13, police said.

The woman told police she hung her Tommy Hilfiger blue leather backpack on a rack while trying on clothes inside the chain store near Bridge Street at about 3:50 pm, and when she went to take it back, it was gone, along with her four credit cards inside, according to authorities.
