76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Rubber room

Cops arrested a Queens man and a Long Island man on March 3 who they say swiped condoms and toiletries from the same pharmacy on Court Street in two separate incidents.

Security at the store between First and Second places detained the Queens suspect at about 1 pm after they said he stuffed 21 boxes of Trojan condoms, worth $417.59, into his bag. When cops cuffed him, they found a pipe containing crack-cocaine residue, according to a report.

Security detained the Long Island man at 9:25 pm on the same day after they say he tried to walk out of the store with $58 worth of body wash and razors.

Knife play

Two toughs stuck a man up on March 3 on Bond Street, according to a report.

The victim was at Baltic Street in Boerum Hill at 10:10 pm when the treacherous twosome approached, and as one brandished a knife the other punched the guy in the face, cutting his lip, cops said.

The brutes snatched $20 worth of food and a black iPhone 4, then took off on foot in the direction of Hoyt Street, according to officers.


A man reported an assault several weeks after he said an unidentified attacker knocked him out cold outside of a bar on Court Street.

The victim reported walking out of the bar between Congress and Warren streets at about 4 am on Feb. 26 and having a ruffian clock him in the face, fracturing his jaw and causing a fall that resulted in a fractured rib and a concussion, cops said.

The victim went to a hospital for his injuries two days later but did not report the assault until March 3, according to a report.

In and out

A burglar swiped jewelry and electronics from an apartment on First Place on March 5, the authorities said.

The victim left her building between Court and Smith streets at 8 am and returned at 4:20 pm to find her pad ransacked, though there was no trace of forced entry, officers said.

The sneak made off with a tennis bracelet worth $4,500, a gold watch worth $500, a diamond ring worth $200, a silver iPad worth $600, and $150 in cash, according to law enforcement officials.
