A 16-year-old thief armed with a box cutter carjacked a motorist on Berry Street Monday.
Police were told that the victim was approaching his car parked by a school near Broadway at 11:07 p.m. on October 12 when the teen approached and pulled a box cutter.
The teen demanded the vehicle, a 2001 Chevrolet Venture, snagged the keys, and drove off with it, officials said.
An area resident was hospitalized Monday following a late night attack on Varet Street.
Police said that the victim was arguing with two others at a home on Varet near Humboldt Street at 1:20 a.m. on October 12 when the suspects pounced.
The heavy handed males beat him and then smashed a glass bottle over his head.
When the smoke cleared, the victim was rushed to an area hospital where he received over fifteen staples to close a deep gash on his head.
Cops investigating the attack rounded up and arrested 27-year-old Juan Garcia and 49-year-old Edwin Walker for the attack.
Both were charged with assault in the second degree, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.
He apparently didn’t hear the police coming. Maybe his iPod was up too loud.
A 20-year-old thief was arrested last week after he was identified as one of three thieves involved in an iPod robbery a week earlier.
Police said that Mark Woods and his accomplices approached their victim on Seigel Street between Humboldt Street and Bushwick Avenue at 5:50 p.m. on October 2.
The victim was grabbed, thrown against the wall and robbed of his iPod, officials said.
Woods was the only one to be arrested for this robbery so far, according to the Kings County District Attorney’s office.
Cops are looking for a thief who ran off with a free-wheeling trickster’s wheels.
The 20-year-old biker said that he was testing out tricks near the corner of Roebling and South 4th streets on the evening of October 12 when someone approached and asked if he could ride the bike.
The victim said no, but the thief jumped off the bike and ran off with it anyway, officials said.
A night of promising romance -- and all the hot stuff that comes with it -- was put on the back-burner when a neighborhood Romeo was robbed of his courting tools -- a six pack of beer and a box of condoms, according to published reports.
The victim said that he was leaving a store on Monstrose and Graham avenues at 1:15 a.m. on October 10 when two men approached and ordered that he fork the items over.
“Give me all your sh-t or we will f--k you up,” the victims threatened.
The victim handed over everything he had to the thieves, who were both apprehended before they could make good use of the items.
The names of the suspects had not been released as this paper went to press.
A road rage incident landed on a whole new level of crazy last week when a motorist was attacked by a skateboarder testing out tricks on Berry Street.
The victim said that he was rolling toward Broadway at 10:45 p.m. on October 1 when he came across the skateboarder, who was blocking the road.
The motorist yelled at the skateboarder to move over, but instead of complying the young man struck the victim’s Honda with his board.
When the victim jumped out of the car to check the damage, the terrible trickster swung his board again, this time hitting the man in the face.
Cops were still looking for the sinister skateboarder as this paper went to press.
The Jewish holiday season took a sour turn for one Williamsburg resident who had his pricey shtreimel swiped from the top of his head as he made his way to services.
The victim said that he was nearing his synagogue at 9:30 p.m. on October 2 when two young males crept up to him on Wallabout Street.
The thieves jumped him, grabbed the fur ceremonial hat, and ran off.
The hat was valued at $1,200, officials said.
She wanted to give him a flower bouquet for the record books; he gave her nothing but thorns.
That pretty much sums up the scam played out at Happy Faces Flowers on Grand Street last week.
An employee said that the thief entered the store just before closing on October 3 and said that he needed a bouquet of flowers for a special anniversary present.
The employee jumped into action and headed toward the back, giving the thief the freedom to raid the place of nearly $8,000 in store receipts.
When the employee returned, both the thief and the money were gone.
Cops were looking for the con artist as this paper went to press.
