88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Cheap shot

Some miscreant took his road rage out on a guy by shooting him in the groin on Fulton Street on Feb. 20.

The victim said he was walking to his car near Putnam Avenue at 9:52 am when he got in an argument with the occupant of a blue vehicle. Instead of making nice, the lowlife shot the guy on the right side of his pelvic area, police reported.

The victim went to the hospital, but his shooter has yet to been found, said police.

Steak out

A crook stole a guy’s phone on the subway on Feb. 16 then threatened the victim with a knife when he chased him to Fulton Street.

The victim said he was on a Prospect Heights-bound 2 train at 11 am looking at pictures on his iPhone when the doors opened at Nevins Street and a goon grabbed the phone from his hand and fled.

The guy followed the lout and caught up with him as he was waiting for the bus on the corner of Livingston and Nevins streets and asked for his property back, but the crook didn’t consent — instead, he pulled out a steak knife from inside of his jacket, said, “Look,” and fled, noted a report.

Trained thieves

A pair of punks snatched a phone from a woman’s hand as she was riding the C train from Broadway Junction on Feb. 14.

The lady told police she sitting in the second-to-last car of a Manhattan-bound locomotive at 10:45 pm when a couple of rogues got on and sat directly across from her.

When the train stopped at Fulton Street, the sticky-fingered pair grabbed her phone from her and fled, according to a report.

Midnight snack

A slimeball snuck into a S. Portland Avenue restaurant while it was closed for the night and stole a wad of cash sometime overnight on Feb. 15.

The owner said he closed up for the night at 10:45 pm, and when he returned to the shop near Fulton Street at 11 am the next day, he noticed someone had entered through the window and exited $300 richer.
