76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Tapped out

An armed bandit robbed a 28-year-old man on Dikeman Street on Aug. 13 after tapping his hapless victim on the back with the muzzle of his firearm.

The victim was between Van Brunt and Conover streets at 1:13 am when the suspect got his attention, flashed his handgun and robbed his victim of an iPhone and a $1,150 Kenneth Cole watch.

Window creeper

A thief sneaked into a Sackett Street home on Aug. 8, taking a bicycle and two laptops — while a 31-year-old woman slept.

The thief crept through an open first-floor window facing the front of the building between Hoyt and Smith streets sometime after 11:30 pm. When the tenant woke up the next morning, her wheels, computers and several credit cards had vanished.

Houdini did it

A thief sneaked into a Baltic Street apartment overnight on Aug. 12 — and cops have no idea how he did it.

The 28-year-old tenant locked the door to his apartment between Henry and Clinton streets when he left at 8 pm, but when he returned at 2 am, his laptop computer, an iPhone and $900 in jewelry were gone.

iPhone swipe

An opportunistic thief crept into a Van Brunt Street studio on Aug. 15, taking an iPhone and a wallet he found sitting on an unattended desk.

The smartphone’s owner was in the back of the building near Reed Street when the 11:20 am theft took place.

Reasonable discourse

Jethro from Flatbush says:
Whenever I read "The cops have no idea of how he did it" etc, I get the impression that the cops believe that the victim knows the perp and is just their way of saying they don't buy the BS tale told to them by the victim.
