Fort Greene–Clinton Hill


Cops busted a 53-year-old man accused of using a Taser on a guy on Park Avenue on March 17.

The victim told police the suspect shocked him with the stun gun near N. Oxford Street at 2:15 pm, before fleeing.

Police arrested the man following a brief search of the area, and found the suspect in possession of weed and pepper spray, in addition to the Taser, cops said.

Rainy day

Police are looking for the woman who they say attacked a man with an umbrella inside a Carlton Avenue residential building on March 21.

The victim told police the suspect attacked him with the rain gear inside the building between Myrtle and Park avenues at 6:30 pm, striking him on the head.

Sharp crook

Investigators are searching for the knife-wielding wacko who stabbed a man inside a Carlton Avenue building on March 22.

The lowlife stabbed the victim in the gut inside the residential building near Atlantic Avenue at 8:52 pm, and first responders rushed the victim to Methodist Hospital for treatment, cops said.

Police claim they found the victim highly intoxicated and uncooperative following the attack, according to the report.

Welcome home

A goon robbed a woman outside her S. Oxford Street home on Feb. 26.

The victim told police the crook shoved her against the wall as she returned to her house between DeKalb and Lafayette avenues at 11:05 pm, demanding entrance to her home and threatening to shoot her if she didn’t stop screaming, eventually grabbing her wallet before fleeing.

Out cold

Reprobates beat a man unconscious amid a Fulton Street robbery on March 12.

The victim told police the crooks attacked him between Washington Avenue and St. James Place at 12:40 pm, beating him until he blacked out, only to awaken and find his iPhone and wallet containing $200 had been stolen.

Teen terror

Cops arrested a 17-year-old boy for allegedly participating in the gun-point robbery of another kid on Greene Avenue on March 18.

The victim, 15, told police the suspect and seven accomplices pulled a gun on him between Fulton and Cumberland streets at 1:40 pm, taking his earphones, iPhone, and backpack.

Police caught up with the suspect a few days later, charging him with felony robbery, cops said.
