A man attacked a woman and stole her iPhone as she was leaving a Graham Avenue night club on June 8.

The woman told police that she was texting on her iPhone as she stepped out of the bar between Johnson Avenue and Boerum Street at 4:05 am when a robber ran up, punched her in the eye, and took her phone.

The crook ran eastbound down Johnson Avenue after he grabbed the phone. Emergency services showed up and took the woman to a hospital. She declined to come back to the station with police and file a detailed report.

The great bike caper

A trio of bullies robbed an 11-year-old boy of his bicycle on Throop Avenue on June 8.

The victim told police that he was riding his bicycle at the northeast corner of Lorimer Street at 8:50 pm when three older kids came up to him and one punched him in the back of the head.

When the boy fell to the ground, another bully took the bicycle away from him and then the three ran southbound down Throop Avenue.

Tools of the trade

A burglar broke into a demolition and trash site on Moore Street sometime between June 6 and 8 — and stole thousands of dollars worth of tools.

Deli grab

A pair of robbers held up a man at gunpoint on Humboldt Street on June 7.

The 40-year-old victim told police that he was working in a bodega at the corner Sholes Street at 3 am when two guys walked in and pointed a gun at him.

“Give me what you got,” one of them said.

The victim handed over his watch, $107 in cash, his black wallet, and a bottle of pills.

Bottle up and explode

A gang of young punks threw a glass bottle and plastic bottle at a man on Morgan Avenue on June 4.

The 31-year-old victim told police that he was standing between Grattan and Thames streets at 2:25 am when three teenagers started throwing things at him, including a glass bottle and a plastic bottle.

He told police that this is the third time in three months that the kids have thrown things at him.

Hattfield, meet McCoy

An ongoing dispute between two neighbors escalated when a man pushed his way into a woman’s Moore Street apartment on May 31 — attacked her, and shattered her phone, according to police.

The 18-year-old woman told police that she was in her apartment between Graham and Manhattan avenues at 10 pm when she heard a knock on her door. The second that she answered, the neighbor pushed his way in, cops reported.

He then allegedly threw her phone to the ground, shattering the glass screen, and punched in the face and chest several times, causing substantial pain.
