Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Jewel thief

Cops cuffed a guy who they say threatened a Fulton Street jewelry store employee and knocked over a display case on Oct. 1.

The 26-year-old suspect got into an argument with the employee inside the store near Bond Street at about 2 pm and said, “I’m gonna kill you,” according to authorities. The suspect then whipped out a metal pipe, shattered the case holding the jewelry, and ran out with an estimated $11,000 worth of chains with gold pendants, police said.

Cops caught the suspect on Bergen Street and Third Avenue later that day, according to authorities.

Not so relaxing

A brute attacked a woman inside a Remsen Street spa on Oct. 1, police said.

The 54-year-old victim said the snake requested an hour-long massage at the spa near Clinton Street, and after about 40 minutes said he wanted to go. But when he went to pay, he pushed the victim to the ground and ran off with $280 from the register, according to authorities.

Break-in bandit

A lout broke into a woman’s Montague Terrace apartment on Sept. 28 and stole her clothes and shoes, police said.

The 33-year-old victim told cops the nogoodnik broke the look to get into her home near Remsen Street at about 5 am and ran off with three packages containing sandals, skirts, and sweaters, according to authorities.

School bully

Some baddie on Oct. 4 swiped a woman’s bag from a Flatbush Avenue Extension private school where she works, police said.

The victim told cops she had left her bag with her wallet inside it in a drawer in the school near Chapel Street at about 7:50 am and at the end of the day when she went to get it to go home at about 5:15 pm, noticed her bag and wallet — with her driver’s license, bank card, insurance card, and $200 inside it — were gone, according to authorities.


A punk rode off with a guy’s electric bicycle on Pacific Street on Oct. 1, police said.

The victim told cops he had parked his pricey blue model 700 two-wheeler near Boerum Place at about 6:30 pm to make a delivery and when he came back just a few moments later, it was gone, according to authorities.
