76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Man in the ski mask

A masked villain stole a woman’s cash and Social Security card in an apartment building on Hoyt Street on Feb. 13, cops said.

The 19-year-old woman was walking down the stairs of the building between Warren and Baltic streets at 10 am when a man wearing a ski mask, black jacket, and red sweatpants pushed her and grabbed her purse, taking $300, her Social Security card, and a bank card.

The cops are looking for video footage in order to apprehend the suspect, they said.

No love

A woman was arrested on Feb. 14 for stealing thousands from a Carroll Gardens woman’s bank account last year, cops said.

The 19-year-old hacked into two bank accounts of the 44-year-old victim — who lives on Third Place between Court and Smith streets — last June and got away with $1,800, cops said.

Detectives finally tracked the perp down on Valentine’s Day and slapped her with grand larceny and identity theft charges.

The one ring

A criminal went on a jewelry-thieving rampage in a woman’s apartment on Luquer Street between Feb. 11 and Feb. 13, police said.

The 42-year-old victim’s left her abode near Clinton Streets on Feb. 11, and when she returned on Feb. 13 around 11 am, the rear window was open, according to cops. The perp took an antique diamond ring allegedly worth $24,000, one pair of cufflinks, a 14-carat gold chain, set of pearls gold earrings, and other jewelry.

Bike buccaneer

A perp rode off with a man’s bicycle parked in a basement on Sullivan Street from Feb. 2 to Feb. 4, cops said.

The 17-year-old victim left his dark green mountain bike between Richards and Van Brunt streets at 3:15 pm on Feb. 2, and when he returned at 3:25 pm two days later, it was nowhere to be found.


A desperado shattered the window of a woman’s car parked on Woodhull Street between Feb. 11 and Feb. 15, cops said.

The 40-year-old victim parked her grey Subaru between First and Second places at 5 pm on Feb. 11, and when she came back at 10:15 am on Feb. 15, she noticed the back passenger-side window broken.

The woman did not find anything missing, cops said.

Point and steal

A band of thieves stole camera from a woman’s apartment on Third Place on Feb. 10, according to police.

The 29-year-old woman left her apartment between Smith and Court Streets at 8:40 am, and when she returned at 5:30 pm, she noticed that her Nikon camera and camera lens were missing.
