88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Nightcap gone wrong

A woman stole a man’s Rolex and credit card after he invited her into his DeKalb Avenue apartment on Oct. 16 and fell asleep after a few drinks, police said.

The 37-year-old victim said he met the woman for the first time and they went to his apartment between Hudson Avenue and Rockwell Place at 3 am.

The man tossed back a few libations, and when he awoke at noon the next day, his watch, his credit card, and the woman were all gone, cops said.

Run the jewels

Cops cuffed a teen who they said was part of a group that attacked two men on Flatbush Avenue Extension on Oct. 14 and jacked their jewelry.

The 50-year-old victim said he and a friend were standing between Willoughby and Fleet streets at 3:04 pm when a group of five or six men approached them. The suspects allegedly attacked the friends, punching and kicking them in their heads and torsos, then snatched the gold chain and medallion from the 50-year-old’s neck and pulled out his stud earrings, according to a police report.

The man’s dentures were also shattered during the attack, the report says. Officers arrived at the scene and slapped cuffs on the 17-year-old.

Lightweight haul

A gunman robbed a teen of $11 near the corner of Adelphi Street and DeKalb Avenue on the morning of Oct. 16, police said.

The 16-year-old victim said he was standing near the intersection at 8:25 am when two fiends approached him, one brandishing a black pistol. He forked over the cash and the bandits took off running on DeKalb towards Clermont Avenue, cops said.

Little take

A pathetic degenerate stole a 10-year-old’s phone on the stairway leading into the Hoyt-Schermerhorn subway station on Oct. 17, cops said.

The youngster, a student at Excellence Boys Charter School in Bedford-Stuyvesant, told police he was entering the station near the corner of Lafayette Avenue and Fulton Street at 12:25 pm when the villain followed him down the stairs and asked him for the time.

When the kid pulled out his phone to check, the miscreant snatched it, according to a police report.

“I have 12 shots in my pocket. Don’t tell anybody,” the bully supposedly barked.

Nightmare neighbor

Authorities arrested a woman for allegedly stabbing her neighbor with a knife three times during a dispute in the lobby of a Carlton Avenue building on Oct. 18, officials reported.

The 29-year-old victim said he was in the lobby of his building between Atlantic Avenue and Fulton Street at 1 am, when his neighbor came in and started arguing with him.

During the fight, the 47-year-old suspect supposedly pulled two knives out of her purse and plunged one into his right shoulder and the side of his face, according to a police report.

Emergency personnel drove the man to Brooklyn Hospital Center and he was treated and released, officers said. Cops found the suspect at 4 pm the same day, they wrote.

Sofa king wrong

A burglar stole a couch, coffee table, suitcase, and cash from a N. Oxford Walk building while the owner was at work on Oct. 14, police reported.

The 21-year-old resident of the apartment between Park and Myrtle avenues said he left for work at 11 am and did not return until 2 the following morning. When he did arrive, he found his front window smashed and his furniture missing, along with $500, cops said.

Mischief to her ears

A miscreant stole instruments and electronics from a Washington Park residence on Oct. 15, cops said.

The 34-year-old victim said she left her apartment between DeKalb and Willouhgby streets for work at 8:40 am, and did not return until 11 that night.

When she arrived, she found her front door open and bunch of her belongings missing, according to a police report. The burglar absconded with a laptop, two electronic tablets, an acoustic guitar, an electric keyboard, and a television set, officers stated.

Police suspect the prowler got in through a back window or a door off the back deck, the authorities said. There were no signs of forced entry, they said.

Road rash

A thief stole a man’s motorcycle from Hall Street on Oct. 18 or 19, cops said.

The 33-year-old owner said he parked his 1997 Kawasaki between Myrtle and Willoughby avenues at 12:30 pm, and that when he returned at 6:30 the next morning, it was gone.
