Daycare horror

Police arrested a worker who they say pulled out a 3-year-old’s hair inside of a Fulton Street daycare center on Feb. 23, according to the authorities.

The kid’s mother said she dropped her son off at the center, between Irving Place and Classon Avenue, at 9 am and picked him up at 3:30 pm. When she got home she noticed that her son had a chunk of hair missing from his head, police said. Her son told her that the kid-minder got angry and ripped his hair out, cops said.

Bad date

A man’s date stole $2,000 from a drawer in his bedroom on S. Oxford Street on Feb. 24, cops said.

The victim said he met the crook on the internet and invited him over to his place, between Lafayette and DeKalb avenues, at 6:30 pm. The scoundrel left at 8:10 pm and the man noticed his cash taken not long thereafter, the authorities said.

Clowned car

Some crooks broke into a woman’s car on the corner of S. Elliott and Hanson places on Feb. 25, while the owner was at the circus, a report says.

The victim said she parked her car near the intersection and went to the show, and when she returned at 12:15 am, she found her car open and her items removed, according to a police report. The rapscallions made off with a backpack containing a laptop, an electronic tablet, and a wallet, law enforcement officials said.


Degenerates made off with two bikes from in front of a S. Oxford Street apartment on Feb. 27, according to police.

The victim said he had four bikes chained up in front of his house, between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue. He last saw them at 1 am, and by 10 pm two of them were gone, cops said. The chains were cut and on the ground, an NYPD account says.

Campus crimes

Two students reported having their bags stolen from Pratt Institute this week, the authorities said.

A student said she left her bag in a classroom on the campus on Willoughby Avenue between Hall Street and Classon Avenue, at 2 pm on Feb. 25. She went to another classroom, and returned two hours later to find her bag gone, according to a police report. The bag contained a hard drive, a cellphone, a debit card, and a credit card, a report says.

Crooks snagged the second bag from a dorm room on the campus sometime between Feb. 25 and 26, cops said. The victim said she left her room at 7 pm, and did not return until 5 the next evening. When she got back, she noticed her purse had been taken, police said. The thief used one of her cards to make $2,600 in purchases at Barneys, cops said.

Mean streets

Three people reported stolen cars in the precinct this week.

Thieves stole the first car from Grand Avenue overnight on Feb. 24, police said.

The owner said he parked his Dodge Caravan between Park and Myrtle avenues at 4:30 pm on Feb. 24. He returned at 3 am the next morning to find it gone, law enforcement officials said.

Later that day, a lowlife with a tow truck carted off a 2014 Honda Accord from the corner of Clermont and Park avenues, according to the authorities.

The owner said he parked his car near the intersection at 8 pm on Feb. 25, and when he returned an hour later he saw a dark-colored tow truck hauling away his car. Police said they did not tow it.

Crooks also took a Nissan Altima from Carlton Avenue overnight on Feb. 27, according to a report.

The owner said he parked his ride between Park and Myrtle avenues at 6 pm, and when he returned at 9:35 the next morning, it was gone.
