Wheeling and stealing

Some brigand robbed a woman at the intersection of E. 37th Street and Kings Highway on Sept. 18.

The victim told police that she was walking near the area around 10 am, when a bike-riding crook snatched her smartphone from out of her hand from behind, and then landed a blow to the back of her head before fleeing the scene.


A trio of goons robbed a teenager near Flatbush Avenue and Lott Place on Sept. 22.

Police say the teen was waiting for a bus near the intersection around 6:20 pm, when two of the men approached him and another confronted him from behind, and asked him to disable his smartphone. When he followed through with their demands they fled, also taking his pricey watch, according to the report.
