88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Hall Street stickup

Two baddies robbed a guy on Hall Street on June 26.

The victim told cops he was walking towards Willoughby Avenue when the crooks walked up with a gun and said, “Give me your stuff” at 9:15 p.m.

The louts took his bag with his laptop and his wallet, before making a run for it, according to the authorities.

Thirsty thieves

Crooks nabbed drinks from a Fulton Street bodega on June 28.

A store employee told police that the nogoodniks took fruit juice and ice tea, and that when he tried to confront them, one of them threatened him with a knife and the two left the scene at Washington Avenue at 5 a.m.

Phone scam

A fraud stole a man’s phone at Monument Walk on June 28.

The victim told cops that he had arranged to meet up with the malefactor near Park Avenue to sell him his phone at 4 p.m.

When he got to the location, he got into the ne’er-do-well’s car, where they made the exchange.

But while counting the cash, the victim noticed the scoundrel underpaid him and after telling him this, the villain said, “get out of the vehicle or I’m going to do you right here,” before skidding off in his white Beamer SUV, according to the authorities.

Bike bruisers

Some goons assaulted a delivery guy on S. Portland Avenue on June 29.

The victim told police that the three crooks drove up to him in two cars and kicked him off his bicycle between DeKalb and Lafayette avenues at 9:15 p.m.

One lawbreaker then pointed a gun at the grounded biker, while the other two fleeced him, stealing his phone and cash, before the trio scrammed towards Fort Greene Park, according to police.

Bad call

Cops arrested a guy they suspect of throwing a phone at a woman’s face on Vanderbilt Avenue on June 24.

The victim told police that the suspect’s phone hit her above the eye at Lafayette Avenue, causing cuts and swelling, and that she went to Brooklyn Hospital to get treatment at 9 a.m.

Cops caught up with the man at the scene minutes later and slapped him with felony assault charges, according to the authorities.
