76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook


Cops arrested a 15-year-old kid for allegedly firing a gun at another boy on Lorraine Street on April 14.

The victim told police that he was between Hicks and Columbia streets at 10:30 pm when the teen approached him and drew a firearm.

“Remember me,” the teen said, before firing several shots — missing the victim each time — and then fleeing on a bicycle, cops said. Police arrested a suspect on April 16, charging him with assault with intent to cause injury.

Bus stopped

Cops arrested a 28-year-old man who they said stole a woman’s phone on an MTA bus on Second Street on April 13.

The 23-year-old victim told police that she was boarding the bus at the W. Ninth and Smith Street stop at 11:30 am when the man followed her on and took a seat behind her. While the bus was in route she felt a tug on her purse, and turned around to see the man holding her cellphone.

The man denied the theft, but the quick-thinking commuter had the bus driver call her phone, which started ringing in the man’s hands. He fled the bus, but a good Samaritan stopped him.
