bugleblotter-300x1711In addition to the recent wave of car thefts, no fewer than three motorcycles were stolen last week. Additionally, there were two assaults across the Heights.

A 35-year-old woman was robbed as she exited Brooklyn Bridge Park on August 2. A thug approached the woman on Adams Street just after 8 p.m. and said “I don’t want to hurt you miss, just give me your phone.” The woman complied and the perp fled the scene.

A man was assaulted on Joralemon Street as he closed up the gym where he worked on August 9. A stranger came into the building, located between Court and Clinton streets, and asked the victim to come outside, where two other men surrounded him and started to punch him.

There was a recent spat of motorcycle thefts, with three motorcycles stolen, including two in one night. The first incident occurred near the corner of Willow and Orange streets on August 3, where a $7500 blue 2009 Kawasaki was stolen. Later that night, another motorcycle was taken near the corner of Hicks and Pineapple streets. That motorcycle was a $5500 1997 purple and yellow Suzuki.

The final theft happened near the intersection of Wyckoff and Smith streets on August 7, when a $5500 black Kawasaki was stolen. Additionally, a 1995 Mecury was reported stolen from the same block last week.

More than $1600 in property was stolen from a car parked near the corner of Livingston and Clinton streets. Along with about $250 in damage to the car, a $200 GPS, $300 iPod Touch and a $250 digital camera were also stolen on July 17.

    It would be funny if the bandits actually read this blog, or the blotter.

    Those vermin can’t read.

    Just curious how you had it locked – I keep hearing of bike theft and am wondering what, if any, is an effective deterrent.

    Garrett, can we assume that you didn’t lock the bike up, considering it’s a nice neighborhood and a busy street? Who would have the balls? Big mistake! Welcome to Brooklyn

    I find it hard to believe that anyone in this city would leave anything valuable such as a bike unlocked. Then again I grew up here, not in some suburb or rural area so maybe I think differently. Anyway, we all experience life lessons which on occasion can be a little expensive. You’re not officially a New Yorker until you got the shaft a few times over the years and still decided to stay.
