Seventh Avenue sneaker

A thief made off with shoes from a Seventh Avenue clothing vendor on March 3.

The victim told police the crook nabbed a pricey pair of Trask shoes from the store between President and Carroll streets at 3:45 pm, before fleeing on a gray bike.

Bad workout

Cops have given up the hunt for the goon who cursed out a woman at a Union Street gym on March 9.

The victim told police she was working at the fitness center between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 5:39 pm, when the jerk barged in and started chewing her out.


Some vandal smashed the door of a woman’s 2013 Toyota Highlander she parked on Sixth Street on March 9.

The victim told police she left her car near Seventh Avenue at 8:35 pm, and returned not 10 minutes later to find a fresh dent in her door.

Hit and run

Investigators have called it quits in the search for the reckless driver who smashed into a man’s car on Third Avenue on March 2, and then fled.

The victim told police he was heading towards Boerum Hill near Ninth Street at 2:50 am when the other driver merged into his lane and smashed into his car.

The motorist then fled heading towards Red Hook on Ninth Street, and police have since closed the case without making any arrests, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief pedaled off with a woman’s bike she parked on Sixth Street on March 4.

The victim told police she locked up her bike between Seventh and Eighth avenues before heading to work at 7 am, only to return that evening to find her ride stolen.
