Nose job

A teenager mugger assailed and then robbed a man on Bergen Street on Aug. 29.

He struck the victim, 27, several times and possibly broke his nose at 10:30 pm on the block between Nevins Street and Third Avenue. The wounded civilian was taken to Kings County Hospital for treatment.

The attacker stole a Blackberry, $250, credit and banking cards and a five Indian rupee note, the equivalent of about $0.10.

She got Gershed!

A woman’s bicycle was stolen from her Front Street home overnight on Aug. 27, a crime that has been named in honor of The Brooklyn Paper’s esteemed and hapless editor, who has had his bicycle stolen three times.

Unlike Gersh Kuntzman’s bike, which was locked on the street, the victim, 25, had stored her pennyfarthing in her apartment, between Gold and Bridge streets.

The victim left her residence at 8:30 am on Aug. 27 and returned 24 hours later. It’s unclear how the burglar entered her abode.

Supermarket crash

Bandits broke into a Joralemon Street grocery overnight on Aug. 27.

The owner arrived at his bodega between Clinton and Court streets at 5:45 am the next day to find the security gate and window broken open. The market closed at 7:30 pm the night before.

He told police that the culprit stole $900 from the cash register.

Carries a big stick

A deliveryman was mercilessly beaten on Wyckoff Street on Aug. 27 by a stick-swinging and apparently hungry attacker who stole the pizza pie.

The victim, 25, was hit several times in the head at 11:50 pm between Court and Smith streets. The thief took nothing but the pizza.

Bank heist

A man stole several hundred dollars from an Atlantic Avenue bank on Aug. 27.

The robber passed a note to the teller asking for $4,000 from the Marathon Bank branch at the corner of Bond Street at 4:20 pm, but the employee enriched him with just $597. He fled safely.

Reasonable discourse

old-timey from slope says:
so the woman who got "Gershed" actually owned a pennyfarthing? how rare.

Simon from Coney Island says:
I find it sickening that you'd give catchy headlines like "Carries a big stick" and "nose job" to these heartless crimes.
