Trick, no treat
A tricky duo hit a man in the head with a piece of wood in his girlfriend’s lobby on Maujer Street on Oct 31.
The 52-year-old victim said he was waiting for his girlfriend to let him into the building, which is between Humboldt Street and Graham Avenue, at around 10:15 pm when someone tapped him on his shoulder and said, “Trick or treat?”
Before he could answer, the man whacked him in the head with a 2×4. His girlfriend found him in the vestibule two hours later.
iPhone and run
A 16-year-old subway mugger was arrested after he allegedly ripped a woman’s iPhone out of her hand on Nov. 5.
The 32-year-old victim told cops that she was leaving a J train at the Broadway and Marcy Avenue station at about 5 pm when the young thug grabbed her phone. She ran after him, but he pushed her away.
But he didn’t get far before cops collared him. The iPhone was recovered.
