Quadruple hit

A band of thieves terrorized a Leonard Street apartment building, hitting four victims during one long July 28.

In one case, the burglars ripped a 38-year-old man’s front door off its hinges and made off with laptops and cameras. The victim told cops that he had left that morning at 9:30 am and retured at 2 pm.

The thieves also forced their way into an elderly woman’s apartment, stealing an expensive watch along with cash and bonds. The 61-year-old victim said that she left her building at around 2:30 pm, returning an hour later to discover the break-in.

Later that night, the crooks broke the lock off a 36-year-old woman’s front door and grabbed fistfuls of jewelry, along with another camera, at some point between 8:50 am and 5:30 pm.

The nightmare finally ended shortly before 9:30 pm, when the rogues ransacked a man’s apartment. Despite breaking the victim’s door open, the thieves apparently found nothing of value and departed without taking anything. The man said that he left his apartment at 8 pm and returned an hour and a half later to find his living room looking like a tornado hit it.

Where: 734 Leonard St. between Greenpoint Avenue and Calyer Street
