A scoundrel mugged a 14-year-old kid on his way to school near Lorimer Street and Union Avenue on Oct. 20.
The kid was on his way to school at 11:30 am when the mugger yelled “Yo!” after him. The teen turned around, but kept walking, cops said. The perp then ran after the victim, cut him off, and told him to run his pockets, according to a police report.
When the teen said nothing, the punk reached into the victim’s pocket and took out his wallet, threw it to the ground, then picked it up and ran away, cops said.
Some punk broke into an 81-year-old man’s Flushing Avenue apartment and ran off with a bounty of valuable jewelry on the afternoon of Oct. 21.
The wizened victim told cops he went to the supermarket at 1 pm and returned to his home between Vandervoort Place and Knickerbocker Avenue at 2:30 pm to find the window leading to his fire escape open. He saw the sneak had climbed through the window and ran off with three gold watches, a gold chain, and three pearl necklace sets, cops said.
The victim’s neighbors reported hearing loud noises at around 1 pm and again at 2 pm, cops said.
Cops collared a guy who they say broke into a 75-year-old man’s S. Second Street apartment on Oct. 19.
The oldster came home to his apartment between Havemeyer Street and Marcy Avenue at around 7:15 pm and found the suspect standing there with the victim’s possessions scattered across his dresser, cops said.
Authorities arrested the alleged trickster, according to a police report.
