76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Perv on the prowl

A sicko exposed himself to a woman on a Church Avenue-bound G train on Sept. 15, police said.

The victim was on the train near the Smith–Ninth Street stop at 10:30 pm when the cretin, described as being about 50 years old and bald, whipped out his penis and started masturbating, a report states.

The victim managed to snap some photos of the perv and provide them to cops, according to a report. The guy fled once he realized he was on camera, cops said.

Window pain

Burglars snuck into an apartment on President Street by climbing through an open window while the occupant slumbered inside between night and morning on Sept. 13 and Sept. 14, cops said.

The tenant said she was sleeping in her home between Clinton and Henry streets and, sometime between 7:30 pm and 5:30 am, the prowlers made off with a 42-inch Samsung television, an iPod, a $1,500 Christian Dior wallet, and a couple of cartons of cigarettes. She found her front door open when she woke up, a report shows.

Sidewalk swipe

An opportunistic thief snagged a woman’s bag from her Clinton Street stoop on Sept. 13 when she left for 15 minutes, officers stated.

The victim said she took her dog into her house between Baltic and Kane streets at 1:30 pm, cops said. When she returned to her stoop 15 minutes later, her bag, wallet, and iPhone had all vanished, according to the authorities.

Menace to society?

Cops collared a 75-year-old woman who they say stole three gauze pads from a pharmacy on Court Street on Sept. 11, merchandise valued at a whopping $2.97, according to a police report.

Employees observed the elderly woman putting the merchandise in her bag without paying for it at the store between First and Second places around 1:05 pm, they said. One called 911 and they turned her over to police, law enforcement officials said.
