Hank’s describes itself as a “rootin’ tootin'” saloon, which sounds like Yosemite Sam’s kind of place. There was no shootin’ there, but there was a stabbing on Friday, after an argument got out of control and one patron stabbed another in the neck. The victim was taken to the hospital and police are on the lookout for the perp.
Meanwhile, with all this talk about gold, the real precious metal, copper, is disappearing from construction sites faster than you can say “plastics.” On August 6th, $1,800 worth of copper was stolen from a site on Bridge St. On August 8th, $15,000 worth of copper was stolen from a Water St. site.
A Wyckoff St. resident reported that someone broke into his apartment during the day and stole his MacBook. Though the victim’s son and babysitter were home, they didn’t hear an intruder. A neighbor reported that an intruder entered her apartment while she was gone and left footprints on her bed.
A woman’s iPad was stolen by a marauding couple on a northbound N train on August 7th. The victim and witness gave chase, but the bandits got away.
Finally, word is that the Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar was broken into this week. A tipster said, “I talked to Jim this morning and he told me some drug addict or an idiot at a minimum, broke his window at 3:30 in the morning on Sunday night and set the alarm off. A loud alarm. Despite the alarm the
idiot still went to the register and got nothing of significance. Unlike Jack The Horse the alarm saved the day.” And that’s this week’s blotter.
