Shop ‘n’ shoot

A gunman shot a guy as he was walking on Baltic Street on Dec. 22, cops said.

The 25-year-old victim said he was walking at 1:40 am between Hoyt and Bond Streets, on the way to the store around the corner from his home, when the goon shot him in the torso and in the groin with a .45-caliber handgun.

The man could not provide a description of his attacker, cops said.

Taxi trouble

A trifling trio robbed a man as he attempted to hail a cab on Third Place on Dec. 20, cops said.

The 27-year-old victim reported he was near Court Street at 5:25 am when the three bandits surrounded him, shouting, “If you make a move, we will stab you!” and “Give me what you have!”

The victim forked over his cellphone, a debit card, a Citibank card, and $25 cash, police said.

Rear window

A vicious vandal broke the window of woman’s home on Visitation Place on Dec. 22, then ran away, according to cops.

The woman said she was watching TV in the upstairs bedroom of her home between Richards and Van Brunt streets at 9:20 pm when she heard the window break, according to cops, who did not recover any weapons at the scene.— Megan Riesz

Brick house

A would-be burglar threw a brick into a lady’s apartment window on Hoyt Street on Dec. 22, cops said.

The 24-year-old victim said she left her home between Union and Sackett streets at 1:30 am and returned at 10 am to find the glass on her front door had been smashed. The main door to the building was also broken, said cops who recovered a brick at the scene.

After taking stock of her apartment, the victim said she was not sure if anything had been stolen.

Ridin’ dirty

A varmint stole four tires and four rims from a man’s parked car on Hicks Street on Dec. 21, cops said.

The 37-year-old man said he left his green Nissan between Centre Mall and Bush Street at 8 pm on Dec. 21 and, when he returned at 12:45 pm on Dec. 22, it was sitting on blocks.

Sunroof strife

A saboteur threw something at a man’s car as he sat in traffic on Smith Street on Dec. 21, cracking his sunroof, cops said.

The 57-year-old victim told the law he was on Smith Street between Centre and Bush streets waiting for a truck to pull out of a lot at 1:30 pm when the hurler tossed an unknown object at his silver Acura, then fled the scene.

The victim informed cops that the person responsible was someone who he had a previous dispute with, but he did not give a description.

Copper copped

A thief stole nine copper pipes from a basement on Bond Street sometime between Dec. 17 and Dec. 18, police said.

The 37-year-old victim said the wily bandit broke into the basement between Sackett and Union streets through the building’s front door, which was broken, sometime between 11 am on Dec. 17 at 11 am and 6 the following morning.
