84th Precinct Police Blotter – 3/31/10

bugleblotter-300x1711 New details about last week’s late-night robbers top this week’s police blotter.

Two back-to-back robberies around 12:30 a.m. on the night of March 28 appear to be linked according to police, with the second victim the BHB reader who sent in an account of his mugging. The perps, one man and two woman, made their first hit on a trio of victims near the corner of Clinton and Joralemon streets. The man approached them from behind and pulled out a gun ordering them to drop to the ground. As they emptied out their pockets, two women appeared and grabbed the collection of purses, wallets, phones and iPods.

Minutes later, the trio approached a man walking his dog at the corner of Sidney and Aitken. The perp pulled out his Glock and told the victim not to let go of his pit bull mix pooch. The woman helped remove the victim’s iPhone and $70.

Another gym robbery occurred at a gym on Fulton Street near Duffield Street. The victim said that she returned to her locker after working out shortly after 4 p.m. on March 22 to find her lock removed and wallet stolen.

    I hope they get arrested before they strike again.

    Edit- Actually it’s more likely that they would get arrested after they strike again…hopefully.

    This makes me want to carry a stun gun in addition to my pepper spray.

    One my way to the gym this morning (at 5am), a cop car was parked at the corner of Columbia Place and State Street. The officers inside were watching “Rush Hour 2″…good work guys!!!

    Of course, if you defend yourself with this “less than lethal” alternative, you’ll probably go to jail.

    Better tried by 12 than carried by 6.

    By that logic, John, it’s your life, your freedom or your wallet. Speaking for myself, I’d prefer not to risk the first two just to defend the latter.

    nabeguy, there’s nothing wrong in defending oneself from criminals.

    Also, who’s to say that complying with a criminal negates risk? The crook may still throw you a beating, or worse.
