Prospect Heights

Free ride

A crook snatched a motorcycle parked on Classon Avenue on June 27.

The 28-year-old victim told cops he parked an orange 2010 Honda motorcycle worth $12,000 near Park Place at 9 am, then left for an hour. That was enough time for the crook to swipe it.

Three gashes

A thug broke into an apartment and stabbed a man on Sterling Place on June 28.

The 42-year-old victim told cops he was playing with his kids inside his home near Washington Avenue at 6 pm, when a woman broke his front window and stabbed him three times in the stomach with a knife.

Cops arrested a 31-year-old suspect the same night.

Dense driver

A jerk stole a car parked on Washington Avenue on July 4.

The 26-year-old victim told cops he left his white Nissan Maxima running near Lincoln Place at around 7:20 pm, and then walked into a shop to buy a bottle of water. He came back a few minutes later and found his car gone.

Face wound

A jerk beat up a man on St. Johns Place on June 28.

The 31-year-old victim told cops he was standing on the sidewalk at around 8 pm, when a stranger punched him, leaving him with a gash on his face.

Gadget snatcher

A crook snatched some electronic gadgets from a car parked on Classon Avenue on June 27.

The 35-year-old victim told cops he parked his black 2007 Jeep Wrangler near Eastern Parkway at 4 pm, then went to a meeting at a nearby school. He came back five hours later and discovered his global positioning device and backpack — with a hard drive inside — were gone.

Empty-handed

A jerk beat up a club-goer on Pacific Street on July 2.

The 19-year-old victim told cops he was walking from Club Status near Classon Avenue just after midnight, when five men ran up to him from behind. “Give me what’s in your pockets!” one of them yelled before punching him, leaving him with a six-inch cut on the back of his head and then running away empty-handed.

Sixty bucks

A group of thugs beat up a man on St. Marks Avenue on June 30.

A woman told cops she and her husband were standing in front of their home near Carlton Avenue at 8:35 pm, when a group of men approached. One yelled, “Give me all you got!” another punched him in the face before snatching $60.

Fire starter

A weirdo jacked a fire extinguisher from a boutique on Washington Avenue on July 1.

An employee at Awedacity, a clothing shop, told cops that a thief walked into the store, which is near St. Johns Place, at 5:45 pm, then snatched a fire extinguisher — worth $200 — off the wall.
