A big thank you to Big Boss Man (aka Homer) for filling in last week. I’m sure the precinct was up in arms that I didn’t show up, but sock drawers won’t rearrange themselves, you know? Now, on to the perps.
The crime count was pretty low last week, though I’ll start with the most terrifying report—last Wednesday night, a couple walking by Nassau and Gold Streets was attacked by a man wearing a red bandana over his face. The thug punched the woman just as an SUV pulled up; two other men then jumped out and cut the male victim from the head to the back. His condition is unknown, though during the attack he dropped a shopping bag full of clothes, which the thugs grabbed before making their getaway.
Yummy Taco was raided last Thursday night, with the thief or thieves stealing a cash register containing $600. Police believe the point of entry was in the bathroom, as part of the ceiling had been lifted.
A woman left her apartment on Warren Street last Wednesday; when the housekeeper entered, she discovered the ground level window open and back door unlocked, along with an antique box and silverware valued at $10,000 missing. Also gone was a 42″ Samsung TV and remote.
That same day, another burglary occurred on Bergen Street; this time, the thief or thieves made off with three laptops, an iPod, a $2,500 diamond necklace and a $700 pair of Christian Loubutin shoes.
A series of vehicle thefts took place beginning last Monday, when a Connecticut resident’s green Jaguar X-Type was stolen from 52 Remsen Street.
Sometime between last Wednesday night and Thursday morning, a thief made off with a black 2006 Triumph Bonneville parked at Water Street and Anchorage Place.
The next day, a 1995 maroon Buick Sentry was stolen from 257 Warren Street. Not only did the owner lose his car, laptop, tennis racket and television, but he had to fess up that he had several outstanding parking tickets as well. And that’s this week’s blotter.
