Thugs beat up man and steal his watch

76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Time thieves

Two thugs beat and robbed a man on Smith Street on March 31.

The victim told police that he was near President Street at 5:10 am when the dastardly duo approached him from behind and pushed him to the pavement. The crooks proceeded to beat the man — punching and kicking him — while he was on the ground, and took the $195 Briel watch off the victim’s wrist.

Beat for beats

Two 14-year-old kids were arrested for allegedly stealing another boy’s headphones on Luquer Street on March 28.

The victim, 14, told police that he was in a fight with the suspects near Clinton Street when one of the boys grabbed his bag and ran off. The bag was later recovered, but the boy’s Dr. Dre Beats headphones, worth $350, were missing.

Black chrome

A gun-wielding thug robbed a man for his iPod Touch on Court Street on March 21.

The victim told police that he was near Baltic Street at 3 pm when the goon approached and drew his firearm. “Give me your s—, mother f—–,” the thief barked, and snagged the victim’s $250 device.

Power tool pillage

A thief plucked power tools from a Clinton Street house that was under renovation on March 21.

The victim told police that he left his home between President and Union streets at 11:30 am, and returned later to find his front door ajar and his $350 framing gun, $300 drill hammer, and various drill attachments worth $120 missing.
