Cobble Hill–Red Hook
A thief knocked down a woman and stole her bag at the Carroll Street F train station on May 25 — but he didn’t get far before he was nabbed.
The victim told cops that she was waiting on the Manhattan-bound platform underneath President Street at around 2:25 am when a 22-year-old man approached, knocked her down and took her bag.
He ran away with the contents — a cellphone, an iPod, a laptop and $20 — but was quickly apprehended by Officer Aldo Gil.
Slice and dice
A thief with a boxcutter robbed a man on President Street after threatening to slice his belly early on May 24.
The victim told police that he was at the corner of Court Street at around 5 am when a perp approached, put the blade of the boxcutter against his abdomen and said, “Give me some money or I am going to hurt you.”
The victim took out $270, and an accomplice grabbed it.
A man was shot near the corner of W. Ninth and Columbia streets on May 27, but gave cops very little to go on.
The man refused to answer questions about the crime, which occurred at around 12:30 am, but he was treated at Long Island College Hospital and released.
