12 monkeys

Police arrested two 12-year-olds for allegedly filching a woman’s bracelet and cellphone at the corner of DeKalb Avenue and Flatbush Avenue Extension on April 22.

According to the victim, one tween asked her for the time — it was 11:50 am — and then snatched her telephone out of her hand and the jewelry from her wrist.


A college student arrived moments too late to stop a burglar from stealing his Willoughby Avenue roommate’s laptop and Zune mp3 player on April 22.

The 20-year-old victim’s roommate told police he returned the apartment between Hall Street and Washington Avenue at 3 pm. He said he heard a strange noise from his roommate’s bedroom and when he entered, he saw the burglar fleeing.
