Bodega of terror

The scary man who haunted the owner of a bodega on Underhill Avenue, returned twice last week to torment him again, cops say.

In the original incident, the man had entered the deli on July 24 at around 10 am and threatened to kill the clerk.

The following day at 5:30 pm, the thug returned, threw a brick at the window, ransacked the store, and finally pulled out his trusted black handgun.

“You will have problems everyday, “ he said to the bodega owner, promising to return soon and kill him. As always, watch The Brooklyn Paper for updates on this ongoing thuggery.

Jog of death

A driver was arrested for killing a woman at Vanderbilt Avenue on Aug. 3.

The 26-year-old woman was jogging at 3 pm along near the corner of Atlantic Avenue, when she was hit by a 36-year-old man driving a white Acura.

The driver was arrested when cops discovered that he was driving with a suspended license.

Park and shoot

Three men were arrested for possessing loaded firearms on Atlantic Avenue on Aug. 2.

The young men — ages 28, 25 and 26 — were parking their black Range Rover near Classon Avenue at 10:30 pm, when a witness saw one of the guns — which was loaded — and called the cops.

No wallet, still mugged

A wallet-less man was mugged on Prospect Places on Aug. 2.

The man was walking near the corner of St. Marks Place at around 2 pm when a perp pulled out a gun and demanded his wallet.

The 43-year-old man told him that he didn’t have his wallet with him, and he even pulled his pockets out to show the crook that there was nothing in them. The hooligan settled for the man’s $400 cellphone instead.
