Ms. Mugger

Two lady thugs mugged a Greenpoint woman on N. Seventh Street on July 23.

The evil distaff siders approached the 26-year-old victim near Wythe Avenue at around 10:30 pm, pushing her to the ground, punching her in the face and taking her pocketbook, which contained her cash, camera and credit card.

Minimum rage

Two criminals stuck up a Greenpoint man at gunpoint on July 25, making off with his cash, paycheck, cellphone and credit cards.

The first crook approached the man at the corner of Van Dam Street and Meeker Avenue at around midnight, brandishing his black handgun and demanding that the 29-year-old victim give up his wallet. The second thug then came from behind and took the wallet, police said.


A woman was arrested for assaulting a man at the Levee bar on July 23.

The suspect reportedly struck the victim in his face with a beer bottle at 1:25 am in the bar, which is at the – which is at Berry and N. Third streets, causing lacerations on the 28-year-old’s lip and chin.

The bottle-brandishing woman was soon collared by police.

Copper robber

A 38-year-old was arrested for that ultimate Greenpoint crime: breaking into a construction site and stealing copper pipes on July 21.

The suspect is said to have broken into the building, which is at Norman and Kingsland avenues, at around 9:30 am and caused $7,000 in damages to doors and air conditioners.

But cops nabbed their suspect soon after, the latest would-be copper thief in a neighborhood that has seen too many of them.


A stealthy burglar ransacked a Monitor Street house overnight on July 24, getting away with hundreds of dollars in pricey electronics and jewelry.

The crook got into the home, which is between Norman and Nassau avenues, sometime after the 19-year-old victim left his home at around 10 pm. When the resident returned at 4 am, he discovered that cash, jewelry, a laptop and a Playstation 3 were missing.
