A car theft from a parking garage and a pair of burglaries on State Street top this week’s police blotter.
A car was stolen from the Quality Car Park on Adams Street between York and Front streets on July 26. As the parking attendant worked at the back of the lot, the perp drove the car through the closed front metal gate. The parking attendant said he had left the keys in the parked 2007 grey Toyota Camry.
A man claimed that he had $1,400 in electronics stolen by a painter he hired on July 16 at his apartment on State Street, between Henry Street and Sidney Place. The man told police that a $1100 laptop and $300 digital camera were taken from the room the painter was working in.
A woman returned to her apartment after a vacation to find more than $4,500 in property stolen. When the woman returned on July 19, she found her apartment door slightly ajar, with visible damage to the door. The building, on State Street between Hoyt and Bond, was last burglarized in July 2005.
More than $600 in cash was stolen in the wee hours of July 22 from a newsstand at Pierrepont Plaza. The perps broke a window, lifted the security gate and went behind the counter, taking bills and $200 in quarter rolls.
A man was stabbed after he got into a verbal dispute with another man on Willoughby Street between Lawrence and Bridge streets. The July 24 afternoon dispute ended with the suspect reaching into his back pocket and brandishing a 4 inch silver pocketknife before stabbing the victim in the forearm.
A woman had her shoulder bag containing nearly $1,100 stolen from her home on Dean Street between Bond and Nevins streets on July 24. The 60-year-old woman told police she left the bag on a chair and believed it was taken by a mover she hired to move her into the apartment.
