84th Precinct Police Blotter – 11/24/09

bugleblotter-300x1711 It was a week full of patterns, including the sudden return of auto thefts. Additionally, there were two apartment break-ins and three attacks near or on the F train in this week’s police blotter.

But, first, an act of courtesy leads to a robbery. A young crook grabbed a cell phone out of a woman’s hand after she pulled it out to tell him the time on Pierrepont Street between Hicks and Henry streets on November 18. The 39-year-old woman was walking down the street around 1 p.m. when the young man approached her and asked for the time before stealing her Blackberry.

The F train was at the center of three crimes this week:

  • Two teens beat up a 23-year-old woman and stole her backpack on the F train near the Jay St/Borough Hall stop at 2 p.m. on November 20. The two perps approached the girl and began punching her in the face before stealing her bag, which contained $70, sneakers, a PDA and cell phone.
  • An alleged stalker attacked a woman near the corner of Fulton and Jay streets as she was walking to the train. The 31-year-old woman said a man she believed was stalking her ran up behind her and hit her on the back of the head with a wooden door stopper before biting her on her stomach and forehead.
  • Two perps stole an iPod and wallet from a 19-year-old male as he walked on Bridge Street near York Street on November 18. The victim was on his way to the subway at 6:40 a.m. when someone ran up behind him pulled out a gun and demanded money, while the other crook took his wallet.

After more than a month without car robberies, there were three in the last week:

  • A white 2008 Pontiac G6 was stolen near the intersection of Tillary and Navy streets sometime between November 8 and 18.
  • A tan-colored 2004 Acura was stolen on Wyckoff Street between Bond and Hoyt streets on the evening of November 19.
  • A green 1993 Nissan Maxima was stolen around noon on November 20 on State Street between Bond and Nevins streets.

Along with the spike in car thefts, there were two apartment robberies this week:

  • A burglar stole an iPhone and a Moleskin notebook calendar after breaking into an apartment on Atlantic Avenue between Hoyt and Smith streets on November 16. The victim said she left her apartment at 6:55 a.m. for about 10 minutes, closing her front door, but leaving it unlocked.
  • A more aggressive crook broke through a locked door to steal a digital camera perched on a windowsill at an apartment on Smith Street between Warren and Wyckoff Streets on November 20.

    When I first moved to Bklyn Hts there was a little security car with a revolving yellow light on top that used to drive around the ‘hood. Maybe it’s time to bring it back?

  • No One of Consequence

    I think that little car belonged to the JW.
    Technically, only the first incident is in BH, but I suppose it’s the entire 84th… and it wouldn’t be much of an article with only one incident.
    What is up with the biting? That’s just bizarre.

    It’s that damn vampire craze!

    And look at the times – noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m…what are we supposed to do? I’m as vigilant and aware as they come, but really..this is crazy.

    Hi No-one-of-consequence. re the car, I did have a neighbor (no longer in the heights) who did some stints driving the little neighborhood watch car and he wasn’t a Witness. Maybe it was bklyn heights assn deal?

  • travy

    jazz your comment is offensive. i hope a ‘savage’ mugs you.

  • Andrew Porter

    That little car belonged to the Civilian Patrol which links to the 84th Precinct. I haven’t seen it in many months, either, now that I think of it.

    I once tried to flag it down but it sped past me without stopping.
