Bad reception

A goon grabbed a woman from behind and stole her cellphone on N. Seventh Street on Feb. 16, cops said.

The 25-year-old victim told police she was about to walk into her apartment building between Havemeyer and Roebling street at 5 am when the lout ran up behind her, bowled her over, held her down, fished her iPhone out of her pocket, and scrammed.

Camera bagged

A stealthy robber attacked a man and ran off with his camera bag on Nassau Avenue on Feb. 10, cops said.

The victim told police that he left a bar at 4 am and headed towards the subway. When he got to the corner of Greenpoint Avenue and Russell Street, the bandit ran up from behind him, threw him to the ground, and grabbed his camera bag, police said.

Aww, nuts

A drunken scoundrel was arrested for kicking a police officer where the sun does not shine after he was caught trying to break into apartments on Franklin Street on Feb. 11, cops said.

A resident of a building between Green and Freeman streets called police at 1:30 am after the soused lout somehow got into the building and started banging on all the apartment doors.

“Let me in,” the man screamed, while banging on doors and turning doorknobs, according to cops. Police say that, when officers tried to arrest the wild-man, he punched a cop and kicked him in the groin. The 29-year-old man was arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer.


Cops cuffed a man who they say stabbed his friend in the leg during an argument on Graham Avenue on Feb. 12.

The 37-year-old victim reported he and the assailant were drinking at his home between Skillman and Conselyea streets at 11:50 pm. The pair started to argue and the friend suddenly picked up a knife and stabbed the victim three times in his left leg, police reported. The 42-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with assault.


A group of bad house-guests jacked a man’s laptop after he invited them into his Graham Avenue apartment on Feb. 9, according to police.

The 26-year-old victim said he invited four friends to his pad between Skillman and Conselyea streets at midnight. The visitors were there for a little while and then left, at which time the victim went to sleep, cops said.

When he woke up at 10 am his computer was gone, police stated.
