Three teens robbed and attacked a 10-year-old boy on the corner of Clinton and Union streets on Feb. 15.

The brutes pushed the lad to ground, kicking him in the face and head several times around 5 pm, and stealing his mobile phone and $3.

The victim was taken to Long Island College Hospital to treat his minor injuries to his head and knee.


A thief looted various odds-and-ends from a rented storage space on Lorraine Street sometime between Feb. 9 and 10.

The man renting a locker in a business between Clinton and Court streets secured his valuables at 5 pm, but when he returned at 1:30 pm the next day, the lock was gone.

The burglar stole a weed whacker, engraver, portable radio and welder.


Four thugs mugged a woman on Court Street on Feb. 12.

Three men and one woman encircled the victim at 1 am between Amity and Congress streets, one of them pressing an unknown, hard object against her hip as a further threat.

Not wanting any more trouble, the victim gave the muggers her purse, containing jewelry and a gold pen, but no cash.

Reasonable discourse

Jessica from Carroll Gardens says:
I find the descriptions of these incidents very offensive. Surely, the victims of these alleged crimes would not appreciate the paper taking light of these events. Also, the police blotter reporter should be careful not to take liberty with the facts as presented to the police. How do we know that the victim in the last crime didn't "want any more trouble?"
