69th Precinct


Killer captured

Police arrested a 26-year-old man they say gunned down a Canarsie resident during an Aug. 31 robbery on E. 78th Street.

Cops from the 69th Precinct said the suspect, who was identified as Kevin Burgess, and another man held up murder victim Michael Daley and a friend in an alley between Glenwood Road and Flatlands Avenue, demanding his gold chain.

When Daley fought back, Burgess opened fire, striking both men — and killing Daley. The second victim suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, officials said.

Cops arrested Burgess this week, charging him with murder.

Shots fired

A gunman opened fire on E. 98th Street on Oct. 14 — but hit no one.

Witnesses said that a shot rang out near Seaview Avenue at 9:10 am, but only caused some property damage.

BJ’s bilk

Cops arrested a 39-year-old BJ’s employee who they say was caught stealing from the Avenue D superstore.

Workers at the BJ’s near E. 87th Street said that the employee stole more than $1,000 from his register sometime in August. Cops caught up with the would-be thief this week, charging him with grand larceny.

Gunning for cellphones

A trigger-happy thug swiped a man’s cellphone on Seaview Avenue on Oct. 14 — then took pot shots at the victim when he tried to get the phone back.

The victim told police that the suspect jumped him inside the Bayview Houses near E. 98th Street on Oct. 14, beating him with an iron and a clothing rack before running off with the man’s cellphone.

The victim followed the thief to his apartment and demanded the phone back, but the thug fired off a gun — punching a bullet through his front door.

Cops were called to the scene, where the gun — and the stolen cellphone — were recovered. Investigators charged the 48-year-old suspect with criminal possession of a weapon and assault.

Paerdegat punk

A 23-year-old was arrested on Oct. 13 after police say he threatened his mother on Paerdegat 10th Street.

The two were arguing by the woman’s car near E. 80th Street at 11:17 pm when the suspect punched the windshield, causing it to crack.

The mother called police, who charged the 23-year-old with menacing and criminal mischief.
