Gunning for loot

A trio of pistol-packing perps robbed a man at gunpoint on Nevins Street on July 8.

The victim told cops that a woman sauntered up asking to bum a cigarette between Wyckoff and Bergen streets at 4 a.m. He replied to say he was out, when two men turned up, and the woman tossed one a black revolver, while snarling, “Give me everything you got!”

The man duly handed his wallet over to the gun-toting gangsters, who fled into a nearby housing complex, cops said.

Bandana bandit

Cops arrested a woman for allegedly slugging a guy and then nabbing his bandana at Jay Street on July 12.

The victim told cops that the suspect caught him with a sucker punch near Johnson Street at 3:40 p.m., before snatching his headband.

Police cuffed the woman — who investigators claim is a known member of the “G-Stone Crips” gang — and charged her with felony robbery.

Tandem bike thieves

Two tricksters stole a man’s bike at Albee Square W. on July 13.

A friend of the victim told police that he was looking after his pal’s bike while he went into the City Point shopping complex between Willoughby and Fulton Streets at 3:30 p.m., but that — while one crook distracted him — another snatched the bike and pedaled off with it.


A prowler looted a purse stashed in the back of an Atlantic Avenue shop on July 3.

The victim told cops that the filcher snuck into the kitchen area of the store between Clinton and Henry streets, before snatching her wallet from inside her purse, along with bracelets and a jewelry case from the shop at some point between noon and 2 p.m.
