76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

One that not away

Cops cuffed a guy who they say robbed a bank of hundreds of dollars on Court Street on March 19.

The 33-year-old handed the teller bank between Third and Fourth places a note around 5:30 pm, police said. The teller gave $486 in cash to the accused, who left and scrammed down Court Street, according to cops.

The man was arrested on W. 23rd Street on March 26, police stated.

Best fiend

A man was arrested who threatened to kill his acquaintance with a knife on Henry Street on March 25, cops said.

The 35-year-old suspect got into an argument with a 26-year-old fellow near W. Ninth Street around 5 pm, according to a police report. The accused then threatened to shank his pal, according to a report.

The officers collared the guy 15 minutes later and charged him with menacing, harassment, and possession of a weapon.

Not so tough now

Cops collared two teens who they say robbed a schoolboy on Henry Street on March 24.

The 17-year-old victim was between Third and Fourth places on his way home from school when the two suspected scoundrels cornered him and took $10 from his wallet, according to police.

The 16-year-olds have forced the boy to fork over $1,720 since January, cops said.

Officers busted the boys inside the school on March 24 at 11:29 am and charged them with robbery and grand larceny, a report states.

Inspect her gadgets

Thieves stole a host of electronics from a woman’s apartment on Columbia Street on March 20, police said.

The prowlers busted into the 30-year-old victim’s apartment between Woodhull and Summit streets sometime between 11 am and 4:30 pm and raided it of an iPad, two Samsung Galaxy tablets, one brown wallet, two credit cards, an iPod Touch, and $2,200 cash, according to cops.

Car raid

A cretin smashed open a man’s car parked on Hicks Street sometime between March 25 and March 27, authorities said.

The 28-year-old victim said he left his white Audi near Bay Street on March 25 at 10 pm and, when he returned two days later at 5:40 pm, the driver’s-side window was shattered and the passenger door was ajar.

The scoundrel took two headlights, a child booster seat, the driver’s-side door handle, two black headrests, and a radio, according to cops.

Bike bandit

A fiend made off with a man’s bicycle from the corner of Smith and Third streets between March 19 and March 21, police said.

The 42-year-old victim reported he locked his ride to a lamppost around 11:30 on March 19 and, when he returned two days later, the 18-speed was gone.
