60th Precinct


Trio of goniffs

Three miscreants threatened a man outside a Surf Avenue restaurant on Oct. 8, unsuccessfully demanding that he hand over his phone, wallet, and money before flashing a knife and throwing a garbage can at him and fleeing the scene, police said.

The good-for-nothings threatened the man at around 2 am between W. 15th and 16th streets. The employee said the three men entered the restaurant and began to act disorderly, and that he told them the restaurant was closed, forcing them to leave. He then went outside to make sure they were not loitering, at which point the punks surrounded the employee and demanded that he hand over his phone and wallet. After a brief struggle, one of the perps then flashed a knife and told the man to bring him the money from inside the restaurant. He then threw a garbage can at the employee — and missed — before fleeing the scene with his posse. Police are reviewing cameras in the area.

Bad dad

Police arrested a man on Oct. 6 who struck his 10-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter with a belt multiple times at their W. 35th Street home, causing bruises and abrasions to the children, according to the report.

The assaults occurred at some point between 4 pm on Oct. 5 and 11:30 am on Oct. 6 between Surf and Mermaid avenues. Police arrested the man just before 9 pm on Nevins Street between State and Schermerhorn streets in Fort Greene on Oct. 6.

Leaky roof

A no-goodnik attempted to burglarize a Neptune Avenue bodega in the early morning hours of Oct. 8 when he cut a hole in the roof of the business to try to gain entry. An employee noticed a leak coming from the roof of the building at W 31st Street just before 7 pm on Oct. 8. He found the cut hole when he went up to the roof to check out the source of the spill. He also found that the perp put a piece of roofing back on top of the hole with the apparent intention of coming back, police said.

Missing money

A criminal stole a little more than $1,700 in cash from a Banner Avenue resident sometime between Sept. 27 and 28 when the perp stole her debit card and withdrew the cash from her checking account.

The woman became aware of the theft when she checked her bank account from her home between Brighton 6th and 7th streets on Oct. 2 just after 4 pm. And when she realized the funds were missing, she realized her debit card was gone as well, although she did not know where or when she lost it.

The worst bargain

A crook stole a woman’s purse and more than $1,600 worth of items inside — including her passport, debit cards, and iPhone 6 — from the baby stroller where it was hanging outside a Brighton Beach Avenue Starbucks on Oct. 3.

The woman said she left her bag hanging on her baby stroller for about 15 minutes while she was browsing at a street stand near the store on Brighton 6th Street at around 6:30 pm. When she returned, she noticed her bag was gone.
