Film, shoot!

A jerk snatched a film projector from a community center on Third Street on Aug. 27.

A worker at the Old Stone House near Fifth Avenue told cops that she left the center at 2:45 pm, then came back the next day at 1:30 pm. That’s when she discovered a door open and the $800 movie projector gone — along with two Dell laptops and $108 in petty cash.

It’s not the first time that the Revolutionary War learning center has been the victim of a burglary. Last year, thieving Redcoats stole two computers and cash.

Bloody lip

A thug beat up a man on Fourth Avenue and swiped his cash on Sept. 3.

The 24-year-old victim told cops that he was near President Street at 1:30 am when someone whacked him in the back of the head. He fell to the ground, and the thug reached into the poor guy’s pocket, snatched $200 and ran away, leaving him with a bloody nose and forehead.
