Cops found the bodies of a man and a woman who were both killed in an apparent murder-suicide inside a Sands Street apartment on Dec. 31.
Cops responded to reports of gunshots at around 9:30 pm at the apartment, which is between Gold and Jay streets, and entered to find a 41-year-old woman slumped over the bed with the fatal wound. On the floor next to her was the alleged gunman — also dead — with the gun under his body.
A creep ripped a woman’s diamond necklace — valued at $31,500 — off her neck on the Q train on Jan. 3.
The 49-year-old victim told cops that she was on the Manhattan-bound train at around 11:45 am when she noticed a sketchy character glaring at her. The victim then stood up and pretended to look at the subway map, but the thug approached her from behind, jabbed an object in her side and whispered, “If you don’t want to be hurt, be quiet!”
The perp then ripped the necklace off as the doors opened at the DeKalb Avenue station, apparently without alarming any other straphangers, got off and vanished into the crowd.

Witnesses alerted Sgt. Michael O’Hare at the station and directed him to the 34-year-old brute.
