A man gets punched in the face after saying, “Hi”; a nanny who has larceny in her heart steals $5K; and a police officer goes on vacation with her robbery report in tow. It’s this week’s police blotter.
At approximately 12 a.m. on May 2nd on the corner of Atlantic and Court streets, a victim states he was punched in the face by a passerby after the victim said said, “Hi.” But the perp didn’t stop at fisticuffs—he proceeded to beat the victim with either a stick or bat, then chased him in his yellow cab when the victim took off. Police were eventually summoned, but the perp drove away.
On April 30th, a man legally parked his Suzuki motorcycle at 55 Clark St., only to find it gone at approximately 5 p.m. Video cameras were directly in front of the vehicle, but according to the report, they could not be accessed. The bike and perp remain at large.
On the afternoon of April 30th, a woman shopping at Macy’s on Fulton St. was bumped on the escalator. When she later checked her bag she noticed her wallet was gone. Cameras turned up negative results, and the Chase and Bank of America cards were canceled—though not before they had been compromised.
An 86-year-old woman was robbed at the local Key Food when she left her bag unattended while shopping, only noticing it was gone when she went to pay for her groceries. Luckily, the bank stopped the criminal activity on her ATM card before any money was stolen.
A woman at 82 Pierrepont St. reported that her nanny, Jodiann Ramsay, stole $5,000 from her desk drawer. When she attempted to call Ms. Ramsay, she learned the phone was disconnected. Any information you may have on the nanny’s whereabouts can be reported to the 84th precinct.
Finally, a 15-year-old girl reported that on the morning of April 22nd she was approached from behind and punched by a girl on the corner of Tillary and Jay streets. The teenage perp tried to make off with the victim’s iPod, but succeeded only in getting the headphones. The girl reported the incident to the 94th precinct and related that she was a classmate of the perp and could identify her. Officer Moulterie took the information down in a report, but did not file it; instead she took it home with her and proceeded bring it along with her on vacation. The victim contacted the 84th precinct to follow up on the case; they then contacted the 94th precinct, who contacted Officer Moulterie, who faxed over the information. As of the date of the report the perp still had not been charged.
