Beaten for Blackberry

A Brighton Beach resident lost his Blackberry cell phone April 10 after he was allegedly attacked by two thugs inside his own apartment.

Officials said that the two thieves were arguing with the victim at 11:05 pm when they allegedly began punching and choking him.

They then chased him around the Brighton 7th Street apartment, located between Banner and Neptune Avenues, before running off with his Blackberry, police alleged.

One of the two suspects, identified as 33-year-old Jermain Stewart, was apprehended a short time later on charges of robbery in the second degree, assault, criminal possession of stolen property and unlawful possession of marijuana.
