It’s that time of week for the Brooklyn Paper’s Police Blotter. This time around we learn about two thugs mugging folks on the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges as well as this tender tale of a skell shaking down a 13 year old:
Brooklyn Paper: Police Blotter: A thug mugged a 13-year-old — from Manhattan, no less! — at the corner of Henry and Clark streets on Nov. 5, getting away without a fight.
The student, who lives in Tribeca but goes to school in Brooklyn Heights, was walking to the subway at 2:30 pm when the perp approached him and said, “Give me your wallet.”
The kid obliged without a fight, handed over his wallet and $47, and went home.
