90th Precinct


At gunpoint

Police arrested a man who they say pointed a gun at a passerby and stole his wallet on S. Second Street on Dec. 17.

The victim reported he was between Union Avenue and Hooper Street at 7:22 am when the ruffian approached with the gun and told him to turn around and empty his pockets. The perp then put his hand into the guy’s pocket and took his wallet, cops said.

The man in custody has been charged with robbery, grand larceny, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon.

Flip out

Cops cuffed an alleged intruder accused of attacking a homeowner after the resident caught him in her bedroom and found her jewelry missing on Broadway on Dec. 20.

The victim said she was at her house between Bartlett and Whipple street at 12:10 am when a creep entered her room. When she spotted the intruder rifling through her jewelry box, the crook punched her in the face several times and choked her, investigators say.

Police arrested a suspect on charges including robbery, burglary, assault, possession of stolen property, and possession of drugs.
