Head wounded

A middle-aged woman was shot in the head on Nov. 15.

Details are sketchy, but cops say they received a call at 12:10 pm that the woman was lying in a parking lot on St. Edwards Street near Myrtle Avenue. She was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Center entered

Another ghoul, like the one that struck on Halloween, haunted the Ronald Edmonds Learning Center on Adelphi Street on Nov. 11.

The intruder broke a window and entered the school, which is between DeKalb and Lafayette avenues, between 2 am and 4 am, though it’s unclear if he stole anything.

Cobalt blues

A man’s Chevy Cobalt was stolen from Willoughby Avenue on Nov. 11.

The victim left his new car near the corner of Hall Street at 6 pm. Shortly after, however, he realized he’d lost his keys. And when he returned to his parking spot three hours later, he saw that he’d lost his car as well.


A pack of thugs gave a mother a reason to worry about her son early on Nov. 13.

The 20-year old victim was walking with his mom in front of Long Island University near Flatbush Avenue Extension and DeKalb Avenue at just after midnight. Mother and son were approached by a gang of four thugs, one of whom confronted the victim and smashed his chin with his elbow, breaking his jaw.

Gray day

A thief scooted off with a scooter parked on Greene Avenue near Waverly Avenue on Nov. 15.

The owner left it there at 6:30 pm, but did not return to it for four days. By the time he returned, it was gone.
