Felt up, held up

A man molested and robbed a woman in a Baltic Street building on Nov. 28.

The pervert dragged a woman from the stairwell in the apartment tower between Bond and Hoyt streets and told her, “I want you.”

He then slid his filthy hand under her shirt and grabbed the 45-year-old victim’s breast in the 7:15 pm attack. While she struggled to get free, $40 fell from her purse — which the creep took before fleeing.

Debase da basement

Burglars ransacked a man’s garden level apartment on Sackett Street on Nov. 24.

The 38-year-old victim said he was away from his home, which is near Bond Street, from 2 to 7 pm — when he returned to find the front door kicked in and jewelry, a laptop and a digital camera missing.

Paper trail

Bandits pillaged a Van Brunt Street paper goods company on Nov. 28.

The manager said no one was in the warehouse from 6 am to 6 pm. When he showed up, he found the front door pried open and thousands of dollars worth of bags and aluminum plates gone from the space between Visitation Place and Pioneer Street.

Theft registry

Intruders sneaked into a Smith Street bar on Nov. 29, but didn’t empty the cash register — instead they took the whole thing.

The hooligans broke through the front door of the lounge between Baltic and Butler streets between 11:26 am and midnight, and cadged the till, which contained $50.

Watch out

Two grifters robbed a man on Visitation Place on Nov. 14.

The 34-year-old victim told police the duo forced him to the ground and stole his watch and wallet, which contained $165. The attack occurred at 11:30 pm between Richards and Van Brunt streets.

No pocket protector

Thugs mugged a teenage boy at the corner of President and Hicks streets on Nov. 20, forcing the 16-year-old to surrender his mp3 player and $20 in the 3:30 pm attack.


A 13-year-old was mugged inside a Bond Street elevator on Nov. 29 by other teens who stole $40 from his pants pocket at 11:10 am. The building is between Warren and Baltic streets.
