Taser blaser

A Taser-wielding thief robbed a woman on St. Johns Place on Sept. 29, stealing her money and an iPod.

The 30-year-old victim told cops that she was on between Washington and Classon avenues when the perp brandished a black Taser and robbed her. The suspect fled on foot.


Airbag thieves were on the prowl over the weekend of Oct. 1. Here are the details:

• A jerk broke into man’s car on Underhill Avenue overnight on Oct. 1. The 40-year-old victim told cops that he parked at 8 pm and returned 14 hours later to find his rear window broken and his steering wheel airbag gone.

• A jerk stole its airbag on Prospect Place near Underhill Avenue over the Oct. 1 weekend. The victim told cops that she returned to the car on Oct. 2 to find her rear window broken and the air bag gone as well.

Too charitable

Two hustlers stole $3,278 from a man leaving a bank on Washington Avenue on Oct. 1.

The 59-year-old victim told cops that he was at the CapitalOne branch near Lincoln Place, where he withdrew $3,000.

After leaving the bank, he was approached by the two schemers, who offered him a blue bandana to wrap up all his money. Upon returning home, the victim unwrapped his bandana to discover ripped-up newspaper wads instead of his cash.


A thug punched a woman in the face on St. Johns Place on Sept. 27.

The 56-year-old victim told cops that she had gotten into an argument with a man between Washington and Underhill avenues at 10 pm. Suddenly, the fight turned violent, with the perp punching her.

Apartment raid

A thief broke into an apartment on St. Marks Avenue on Sept. 26, stealing $9,000 in goods.

The 29-year-old victim told cops that he came back to his apartment between Vanderbilt and Underhill avenues at 4:30 pm to find that a digital camera, two laptops, and a fancy Fuji bicycle were gone.
