88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

I called next song!

Cops cuffed a guy who they say beat a Fort Greene man in a dispute over an iPod at Auburn Place on Oct. 7.

The victim told police that he got into an argument with the accused over the audio device near N. Portland Avenue. The suspect allegedly attacked the victim, and punched him repeatedly, leaving him with cuts and possible broken bones, cops say.

The victim was taken to Brooklyn Hospital for stitches and other treatment.

Assault on Precinct 88

Authorities arrested two men who opened fire on three police officers on Classon Avenue on Oct. 7, according to officials.

A gunfight erupted at DeKalb Avenue around 10:45 pm, after the suspects began shooting at the officers, cops say.

After being targeted, the officers took cover and returned fire, police said.

No injuries were included in the report.

At some point after the shooting, police arrested the two accused shooters, according to a report.

Angry auntie

A woman attacked her boyfriend’s nephew on Adelphi Street on the morning of Oct. 10, cops said.

The victim told police that he was in his apartment between Myrtle and Park avenues when his uncle’s unhinged paramour stepped on his injured foot, causing him considerable pain. She later slammed a door into his face, leaving him with cuts and bruises, police said.

The femme fatale allegedly threatened the victim with lethal force, telling him that he was “going to get a bullet,” cops said.

Quite an indulgence

Two charlatans swindled $10,000 out of a woman on Myrtle Avenue on Oct. 5 by posing as donors for a church.

The two swindlers approached the victim near Clinton Avenue at 2 pm, asking for directions to a church they intended to make a substantial cash offering to, cops say.

After some finagling, the pair somehow convinced the victim to go to her bank and withdraw $10,000 in cash, and hand it over to them. She did so, and the tricksters “examined” the dough before handing back counterfeit cash, police said.

It was not until later that she realized that the money she was in possession of was not real, a report states.

Reasonable discourse

Joey from Clinton Hills says:
The 88th Police station is at DeKalb and Classon. Are you sure you're not talking about the shooting that happened at N. Portland and Park Ave. under the BQE?
