A 17-year-old was arrested for beating a man — with a block of ice — and robbing him on Foster Avenue on Feb. 13, taking his iPhone, Blackberry, and cash.
The victim told police that he was between Rockaway Parkway and E. 98th Street at 6:40 pm when the suspect and three others dragged him into an alley and beat him unconcious with the chunk of frozen water before stealing his iPhone, BlackBerry, and cash.
A 22-year-old man was arrested for stealing a woman’s car on E. 101st Street on Feb. 25 — when cops reportedly found it resting on cinder blocks in the suspect’s backyard.
The victim told police that she left her car between Avenue N and Seaview Avenue at 6 am, and returned to find an empty spot. A witness later reported seeing the victim’s car, sans tires, resting on blocks in the suspect’s backyard, cops said.
