Move it and lose it

A trio of lowlifes who were hired as movers drove off with a woman’s possessions on Nassau Avenue on July 29, police stated.

The victim reported that she found the treasonous trio on Craigslist and hired them to help her move. The fiends showed up to the apartment between Sutton Street and Morgan Avenue at 8:30 am in a white box truck covered with graffiti and loaded up the woman’s boxes, as well as her motorcycle, scooter, laptop, and cash, officers said.

The villains then drove off, telling the unlucky sap they would meet her at her new apartment, but she never saw them again, cops said.

Stroller roller

A miscreant robbed a woman as she was pushing her baby in a stroller and walking her dog on N. Eighth Street on July 30, according to a police report.

The woman said she was between Kent and Wythe avenues at 10 am when the ran up behind her, reached into her front right pocket, and grabbed her cellphone.

Spare a wallet?

A pickpocket pretending to bum a cigarette stole a woman’s wallet as she waited for someone to show her a Clay Street apartment on June 17, police stated.

The woman said she was waiting on the stoop of the house between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard at 4:30 pm when the sneak walked up to her and asked if she could spare a smoke.

The lady said no and the malefactor lingered, talking to her and making her feel uncomfortable, she said.

A few moments later the realtor arrived and the victim realized that her billfold containing cash, a debit card, and a MetroCard were missing, law enforcement officials said. The woman did not report the crime for more than a month, a report states.

Relatively nuts

An angry man attacked his cousin on N. Sixth Street on July 31, according to police.

The victim said he was standing between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street at 9:30 am when his cousin came up behind him, slammed into the ground, and put him in a chokehold.

The victim cut and bruised both of his knees, the NYPD said.
