Domestic drama

A 23-year-old woman stole her younger cousin’s cellphone from the victim’s apartment on Avenue W on Feb. 25, according to authorities.

Police say the cold-hearted crook punched and pushed her 14-year-old cousin at the apartment near Nostrand Avenue before snatching the phone at 10 pm. Cops say the woman fled in an unknown direction.

Thieves to the third power

Three men stole a 14-year-old boy’s cellphone on Quentin Road on Feb. 15, an officer stated.

Cops say the victim was walking near Ocean Avenue when the crooks cornered him at 3 pm. One of the thieves stood in front of the victim while another grabbed the boy’s shoulders and the third grabbed the boy’s cell phone. Police say the good-for-nothings then fled.
