94th Precinct

Greenpoint–Northside

Sailing away

Someone smashed an outdoor enthusiast’s car windshield and stole his kayak and kayak seat out of the vehicle on Wythe Avenue on July 4.

The victim told police that he left his kayak in his parked car near N. 13th Street at noon. When he returned at 2:30 pm, he found that someone had smashed his windshield with a hammer, poured paint on his vehicle, and ran off with the kayak.

Four-wheeled bandit

Someone broke into a Monitor Street garage on July 7 and stole two bicycles.

The victim told police that he put his bicycle in his garage near Engert Street at 1:30 am. When he looked again 12 hours later, he found his bicycle and another both missing, and the garage door slightly ajar.

Gone in a second

A heartless crook stole an unaware tourist’s belongings he left on a Lorimer Street train platform on July 5 while he stepped away.

The victim told police that he briefly left his stuff at the platform at 11:25 pm. When he came back to the platform a few minutes later, all of his stuff was gone, including his Mexican passport.
