Thanksgiving feast gone wrong
Two alleged shoplifters ended up in jail last week after they went shopping for a post-Thanksgiving feast.
Officials said that 33-year-old Tyrone Taylor and 28-year-old Dion Roberts were charged with robbery in the second degree and assault after they were seen allegedly pocketing yams, potatoes and some fish from the Utica Fruit Market, 848 Utica Avenue near Church Avenue at 5 a.m. on November 29.
Officials said that one of the two men allegedly punched a worker when he tried to stop them from making off with the food.
A 20-year-old man was arrested last week after he allegedly charged at a woman with a butcher knife in his hand.
Police alleged that Markenso Germain was arguing with the woman at the corner of Nostrand and Church avenues at 7:10 p.m. on November 27 when he threatened to kill her.
He then grabbed a butcher knife and swung it over the woman’s head, officials alleged.

Clara St. killing investigated
Investigators are continuing their search for the person responsible for gunning down a man on All Saints’ Day.
Police said that the victim, whose name had not been released, was found shot in the head at 11:30 a.m. on November 1 just as residents of Clara Street in Kensington were starting their Sunday.
Responding paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
Initial reports indicated that the victim was shot multiple times in the head. The shooter may have been wearing a Halloween mask, cops were told.
Police said that they have tentatively identified the victim, but had yet to confirm the victim’s identity with family members. No motive was forthcoming as this paper went to press.
Investigators are reportedly working on the theory that the victim may have been shot in the car moments before his body was left on Clara Street. Some residents recall hearing gunshots that morning.
Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward.
