84th Precinct Police Blotter – 5/10/11

bugleblotter-300x1711 A Louisiana granny becomes a Junior’s purse-snatching victim; a former employee steals $81,000 from the place the fired him; and another edition of You Make The Call. It’s this week’s police blotter.

A man who had worked at an architecture firm located at 20 Jay St. got back at his former employers by going on a spending spree courtesy of a few corporate cards. The damage totaled $81,400.

On Sunday evening, three perps banded together to steal an iPhone from a woman on the 3 train. Two were arrested at the scene, though the one with the phone got away.

Rather than translate this police report of an incident at the Court St. Starbucks, I have transcribed it, allowing you enjoy for yourselves.
“Defendant did ask her to use the bathroom where whe [sic] wouldn’t more [sic] fast enough to open the door defendant did take a bottle and hit her in the arm with it. Defendant had bruises and swelling to her arm.”

A domestic dispute went public on Montague St. Thursday evening. A 31-year-old woman reported that she got into a fight with her boyfriend, who then pulled her hair, hit her and burnt her with a cigarette. The boyfriend is currently at large.

The management office of an unnamed gym (I can’t say Planet Fitness for sure) was the site of a purse snatching Wednesday morning. According to the victim, she left her purse at her cubicle located at 185 Montague St., and when she returned to her desk, it was gone.

An 89-year-old visitor from Louisiana was dining at Junior’s and got her purse stolen for her troubles. The victim said she left her bag on the chair next to her, but noticed it was taken when she went to leave. The good news is this is one crime that was actually caught on tape.

Finally, a report that seems to be missing a line or two in the story. This incident took place late Saturday night at 160 Schermerhorn St. The 48-year-old victim claims he was sleeping when security let a woman in the building. According to the report, “When he told her to leave out of his room [he] noticed his wallet missing. Woman stated she was there with his permission but came back when he was sleeping.” $1,500 cash was stolen.
What’s it all about, Alfie? You make the call. And that’s this week’s blotter.

    A possible break in the PF gym thefts?

    Heather, I have newfound admiration for the way you write this piece! I was reading one of the local papers that are free in the lobby of Clark’s Diner earlier in the week — the one with the headline “Town versus Gown.” It, too, has a police blotter report. Whoever wrote the article referred to each and every offender as “the jerk”. He must have used the phrase ten times in a half page piece. Yet strangely, when he wrote about a woman in the Fulton Street Macy’s who put her purse on top of her stroller while she went up to the fourth floor (and it was stolen, of course), I called the woman a jerk and he didn’t! Go figure!

    @nabeguy – Oh no, now I’m out of a job!

    @Knight – The Chicago Manual of Style’s preferred use of “jerk” is in reference to The Jerk Store http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpNPw4H6_tU
