Bike swiper

A punk stole a guy’s motorcycle parked on Pacific Street sometime overnight on Oct. 16.

The victim parked his 2009 black and green Kawasaki between Clinton and Court streets at 10:30 pm, and when he went to pick it up at 8:30 am the next day, it was gone, police said.


A nogoodnik threw a brick through the window of a clothing store on Atlantic Avenue on Oct. 17, police said.
