One dollar, no holler

A money-hungry man tried robbing another man on E. 24th Street on Jan. 11 — but he stopped when he realized the victim only had $1, according to authorities.

The victim said he was near at 11:20 pm when the goon hit him in the face. Officers say the man did not rob his victim because he didn’t have enough cash.

Appetite for stealing

A crafty crook snuck into a home on E. 21st Street through an unlocked kitchen window on Jan. 7 and stole a woman’s cellphone, police say.

Authorities say the robber broke into the home between Avenues U and V at 2 am and stole the phone.

Window of opportunity

A ruthless robber broke into a W. First Street home on Jan. 10 and stole tens of thousands of dollars in cash, jewelry, and electronics.

The burglar broke into the home between Avenues X and Y at 5:30 pm through an unlocked window, an officer stated.

Officers say the thief stole $10,000, a diamond watch, and a cellphone and left the window open after fleeing.

Hot for hats

A bigheaded brute stole 15 hats and cash from an Ocean Avenue apartment on Jan. 7, cops say.

Police say the crook broke into the pad near Kings Highway at 8 pm. Authorities say the thief cut the window screen, stole the hats and $50, and exited the apartment by way of the fire escape.
