Violent jerk on Bedford

Gold rush

Cops nabbed a gold-digging delinquent after he took a woman’s jewelry on Bedford Avenue on Sept. 14.

The victim told cops that she was near N. 12th Street at 2:40 pm when the creep ripped a gold necklace off her neck and then punched her in the back of the head. The goon fled, but police soon had him wearing some shiny bracelets of his own.


Two thugs robbed a man on Jackson Street on Sept. 18.

The victim told cops that he was near Woodpoint Road at about 11 pm when one of the perps approached, simulated having a gun, and asked, “Do you want to get shot tonight?”

There’s really no good answer to that question, but before the victim could say anything, the other perp sneaked up from behind and began choking the victim, who threw his wallet on the ground.


Some umbrella-wielding jerk attacked a man at the Meserole Avenue YMCA on Sept. 18.

Late-night swipe

A gadget-gathering goon made off with some electronics from a Bedford Avenue apartment on Sept. 18.

Window cleaner

Some creep cleaned out a N. Fourth Street apartment on Sept. 19.

The victim told cops that she locked her apartment at 7 pm, but 20 minutes later, she returned to find a side window open and two laptops missing. Cops suspect the agile jerk climbed up a fire escape that was accessible from the street.

Broken glass

Some perp stole $5,000 out of a Toyota pickup parked on N. Third Street on Sept. 18.
