Robbery on the N train; robbery on the Q train; robbery on the F. No police report on the Clark St. shooting till next week. So it’s this week’s police blotter.
Two weeks ago the blotter theme was bank fraud; last week is was Planet Fitness. (And Incidentally, I made repeated calls to Planet Fitness manager Dwight Lewis that were not returned. Dwight, if you’re out there, give me a call me back, will ya? You have my number. Several times over. Otherwise, I’ll have to play the role of Arnold Diaz with Junkersfeld at the helm, and you don’t want that. Neither does Junkersfeld.)
This week’s theme is the good ol’ subway. To wit:
On Willoughby and Jay Saturday afternoon, three teens approached a woman and asked for information about the subway. She took out her iPhone to answer but when she returned it, a fourth teen grabbed the iPhone and ran.
About 90 minutes earlier at Pacific and 4th, an iPhone was snatched out of a woman’s hand while she was riding a northbound N train.
At 2:25 am the next morning, same station, a man sitting by the doors on the N got his iPod snatched when the doors opened.
Two hours later at DeKalb and Flatbush, a man was lying down on the Q seats, in violation of New York City Transit’s Rules of Conduct Section 1050.7. An officer went to arrest him, and that’s when the perp got on his feet—he yelled and screamed and headbutted the officer before being subdued.
I’d say it was easier above ground, and yet: At the Brooklyn Criminal Court on Thursday afternoon, a man yelled at an officer, using the curse with F. He then struck the officer and was arrested.
On State St. Sunday afternoon, a man left his apartment while his girlfriend stayed home. Suddenly, she heard a noise followed by a stranger peeking his head out of the kitchen, saying, “Sorry, wrong apartment.” The perp then left while she followed. When she and the boyfriend returned home, the boyfriend’s wallet was gone.
A Con Ed supervisor’s computer monitor was stolen from the company vehicle after she parked and left it unlocked at 235 Gold St.
At 45 Hoyt St. last Monday, a man became irate with a Food Stamp Center employee and hit her on the leg with a chair.
On Bridge St. Thursday morning, thieves entered an apartment through unlocked sliding glass doors and hit paydirt. In addition to a PS3 and XBox there was a $400 camera, $500 video camera, another $350 camera, a $700 iPod (really?), $600 in jewelry and $200 in tools.
At noon Saturday at 379 Bridge St., the owner of a 2008 Suzuki motorcycle became the former owner of a 2008 Suzuki motorcycle after it was stolen.
And finally, a man entered an office at 68 Jay St., asked for “Mikey,” walked to a woman’s desk while she was away and stole her 17″ and 15″ Apple Mac Books. And that’s this week’s blotter.
