76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

That’s F’d up

A thief grabbed a woman’s iPod — but didn’t get her purse — on a Coney Island-bound F train on Aug. 12.

Cops say that the train pulled into the Smith-Ninth Street station at around 8 pm when the thief made his move, grabbing the iPod Touch and leaping outside of the train.

The 23-year-old victim gave chase, only to be shoved to the platform. But she held onto her purse, which the thief tried to grab. The 15-year-old, 5-foot-8 perp fled as bystanders approached.

Stamp out

Someone stole a mess of computing equipment from a Richard Street business on Aug. 15.

The thief entered through the open back door of Stamp Studio, which is at Coffey Street, at around 9:40 pm and helped himself to an Apple laptop, five hard drives and several monitors, though the thief dropped both monitors as he fled toward Dwight Street.

Liberty denied

A thief broke into a restaurant supply company on Court Street overnight on Aug. 10.

Cops say that someone broke into Liberty Restaurant Supply, which is near Bay Street in Red Hook, after the business closed for the night at 6 pm.

The next morning, a worker discovered that a thief had broken through the front door and taken $16,000.

Louse party

A thief stole a party-goer’s wallet as she boogied in a Bond Street apartment on Aug. 8.

Cops say that a house party was raging in a building near Baltic Street at around 8 pm when the thief made his move, taking a wallet that contained various cards and $340.

Tee’d off

A gang pummeled a man with bats and golf clubs on Court Street on Aug. 15.

It’s unclear what sparked the bashing near the corner of Second Place, but the 17-year-old victim told cops that the men attacked him at around 3:12 am.

He sustained minor bruising, and refused medical attention.

TV screened

Remember that perp who stole two flat-screen TVs from the Brooklyn Motor Inn on June 22? Of course you don’t — but cops did, and they made an arrest last week.

Det. Donald Faust collared a 21-year-old suspect in the robbery inside the motel, which is at the Battery Tunnel end of Hamilton Avenue in Red Hook.

Shot down

An 18-year-old was arrested after allegedly shooting another man on Dwight Street near Coffey Park on Aug. 8.

Cops say that two detectives were at Long Island College Hospital on an unrelated matter when a man came in with a gunshot wound to his shoulder at around 10:20 pm.

The detectives were intrigued, and questioned the man, who said he had been shot by an unknown man.

Cops flooded the zone, and witnesses gave up the suspect, who was arrested by Det. Patrick Miller the next day.
