It seems that robbers have been staking out the Macy’s shoe department, with two robberies in two weeks.
On January 27, a robber grabbed a woman’s purse containing $150 in cash, and iPod and a digital camera from the back of a chair as she was trying on a pair of shoes. A week later, a purse containing $25 was taken from a bench in the shoe department on February 6 around 6 p.m.
A subway thief with a knife stole $75 by cutting the side of a woman’s purse on an F train near the Jay Street/Borough Hall station.
A perp stole a briefcase containing a laptop from an unlocked office in a building on Court Street between State and Schermerhorn streets on January 26 around 5 p.m.
