Police Blotter: Thugs Lurk on Cranberry Street

atm big 02.jpgThe Brooklyn Papers reports that a 22 year old man was robbed at knifepoint at the corner of Cranberry and Willow Streets on October 13 at 6:30 pm.

When the man informed the three knife wielding felons that he had no cash, they forced him to a "nearby ATM" on Henry Street where he withdrew $200.

The criminals are described as "three black males, one of whom was described as 5 foot 8 inches and was last spotted wearing a black jacket and black skullcap."

One of the interlopers warned the victim that "if you call the cops, we'll hunt you down."

Odds are New York's Finest will apprehend these skells-in-waiting before that can happen.

If you witnessed this crime or can offer leads in this case, call the NYPD's CrimeStoppers 1-800-577-TIPS.

    Perhaps coincidentally (perhaps not), on May 11th of this year, a man in his twenties was robbed and beaten by a gang of about 7-10 teenagers on the same corner of Cranberry and Willow at around 7:30pm. It was in the Crime Blotter and made it onto a few local online newsgroups.
