Hello, sports fans! Great to be back in the driver’s seat on the BHB. Today was my first day at the 84 in several weeks, so I had visions of cops and skells alike embracing me as I sashayed through the front door. Oh, how they missed me, I thought. It would be almost like Madonna in that Material World video.
What actually happened was pretty close! The man at the front desk left as soon as he saw me. Then I heard one of the custodians on her cell: “You sent my brother to jail for two years and you still at it??? I hate you, Linda, I hate you so much, I’m gonna destroy you.” Great to be back!
This week’s blotter focuses on several incidents that went down at the Willoughby and Jay St. station. The rundown is as follows:
At 1:02 p.m. Wednesday, a man’s iPod was stolen from the C train.
At 10:50 a.m. Friday, a makeup bag was stolen from the A train.
At 1:25 a.m. Saturday, a man suffered a broken nose after he was punched in the face by the F train. His cell was taken for good measure.
Nearby at Bond and Fulton at 4 a.m. last Thursday, a woman was robbed on her way to the Hoyt/Schermerhorn station.
An iPhone was stolen at the Borough Hall station last Friday at 10 a.m.
Not to be outdone, Vinegar Hill was the site of two incidents last week. The first occurred at 2:50 a.m. Thursday, when a 23-year-old man walking to his car at York and Jay Sts. was punched and threatened by a thug who said, “If you scream, I’ll kill you,” and took $110.
The second was 1 p.m. Sunday on Plymouth St., when a thug couple stole a German tourist’s pocketbook. And that’s this week’s blotter, Mein Gott. Until next week …
