For those of you hunkered down under the inches of snow, it’s a special weekend edition of the blotter.
Last Monday there were two reports of women being robbed in elevators. The first occurred at 8 a.m. on Bridge Street, where a thug stole $20, the second at 8:30 a.m. on Sands Street, where a thug stole $850.
On January 8th, a wallet was stolen from a customer at Amarachi Prime, and $800 charged to the victim’s debit card.
It was a terrible New Year’s Day for a woman on Willow Street, who got into a verbal altercation with her boyfriend that escalated to the point where he punched her in the face. The suspect was still at large at the time of the report.
Another fight between a couple took place in an apartment on Atlantic Avenue and ended when the man threw an alarm clock at his girlfriend’s face. He was later arrested.
That old standby, the locker room theft, took place at the YMCA on Atlantic Avenue on January 14th. The victim put her belongings in a locker and when she returned they were gone. The haul included $250 boots, a $200 handbag, $325 jacket, and that all-important monthly Metrocard. (Which will soon cost even more.)
A patient left his wallet at Metropolitan Dental on Fulton Street, and it was gone by the time he returned.
On January 15th at the Montague Street AT&T store, two men grabbed two iPhone 6s and two Samsung Galaxies from a display. Total value: $2,885.96.
On January 15th at 8:20 p.m., a 72-year-old man walking to his friend’s apartment on Sidney Place was approached by two teenage perps, one of whom flashed a knife and demanded the victim’s phone. The man handed it over, along with $50.
Finally, two men with tote bags walked into the West Elm in DUMBO and walked out with $5,300 worth of duvet covers, shams, and sheet sets. And that’s this week(end)’s blotter.
