Fort Greene–Clinton Hill
Three goons roaming the streets of Fort Greene in the early hours of Aug. 22 robbed two men in separate incidents. Here’s the rundown:
• A trio of baddies first robbed and bashed a guy on Willoughby Avenue at 1:15 am.
Their victim told authorities he was near Emerson Place when the scoundrels surrounded him, told him they had a gun, and forced him to hand over his phone and backpack — which contained his clothes, phone charger, cologne, and flip flops.
The dirtbags then grabbed the guy, punched him, and threw him before fleeing, according to a report.
• Then at 1:40 am, three crooks pushed another man to the ground on Lafayette Avenue.
Authorities said the man was near Grand Avenue when the trio knocked him down and took his iPhone and wallet, which contained his credit cards and identification.
Cops cuffed a man who they say beat a man with a stick so hard that the rod splintered on Putnam Avenue on Aug. 23.
The victim and the suspect got into a verbal spat near Irving Place at 8:30 pm that eventually turned physical, authorities said. The accused then allegedly found a wooden stick and swung it at his victim, hitting him on the back of the head so hard that the weapon broke into two pieces, police said.
Police arrested a man for allegedly slashing a guy with a knife on Fulton Street on Aug. 26.
The victim was standing on the street near St. James Place at 5:15 pm when the suspect came by and started cursing at him and a friend, cops said. The man who reported the crime said he told the suspect to keep walking, causing him to become very aggressive. The suspect then pulled out a knife and slashed his victim on the left hand, according to a report.
Authorities slapped cuffs on a guy who allegedly bashed a man and tried to steal his car because of a blocked road on Adelphi Street on Aug. 27.
The victim told police he got into an argument with the suspect near Lafayette Avenue at 10:06 pm when the man became irate and punched him in the face several times.
As the victim was trying to call 911, the man got into his opponent’s vehicle and tried to drive away before the victim jumped in and removed the keys, said authorities.
