Borrowed bike

A crook stole a guy’s bike right out from under him on Avenue W on June 10, police said.

The guy was riding his So Cal Flyer-brand bicycle near E. 23rd Street at about 8 pm when the baddie came up to him from behind on his own bike and grabbed the victim’s back tire, forcing him to hop off, officials said.

The punk gave the guy his number and told him he’d have to buy his own two-wheeler back from him, according to authorities. The nogoodnik fled and the victim ran home, police said.


Some jerk broke into a guy’s home on Quentin Road sometime overnight on June 4, police said.

The homeowner realized his back door near Stuart Street had been broken sometime between a little before midnight and noon the next day, officials said. No property was stolen, according to authorities.

Shattered glass

A lout chucked a brick through a window of a McDonald Avenue store sometime overnight on June 6 and stole cash and shoes, police said.

The cur hurled the brick through the store’s glass window near Avenue S sometime between 9 pm and 2:43 am, officials said. The baddie then entered the store and swiped the cash register with $300 in it, plus a pair of insulated boots and Kedi-brand sneakers, according to authorities.

The malefactor fled, but the store owner has video footage, according to authorities.

Reader feedback

Ken from Williamsburg says:
Do we get a follow up on the bike theft. Surely the police could go with the guy to "buy back" his bike and nab the perp.
