A woman was arrested for attempting to steal more than $1,000 of clothing from a department store on Avenue U on July 22.
A worker at the store located near 54th Street said he witnessed the woman take many items, including several pieces of clothing, at 5:30 pm and attempt to leave the store without paying for them.
The clothing was valued to be $1,091.47 and was recovered from the woman’s bag before she left the store, police said.
Police arrested a suspect who they say repeatedly stabbed another man with a knife on Avenue I on July 17 before fleeing the scene.
A witness told police he saw the suspect stab the victim repeatedly in the stomach with the knife near E. New York Avenue at 3:35 am, before leaving with the blade still in his hands. The witness said the victim laid in a pool of blood and was taken to a local hospital to be treated in the trauma emergency room for the severe puncture wound.
