88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Down and dirty

A gunman robbed a woman on the 5 train at the Nevins Street station on Sept. 5.

The victim told police the bandit boarded the Flatbush-bound train at the station near Flatbush Avenue and snatched her phone while holding her at gunpoint at 1:20 p.m., before fleeing at the next station.

E crime

A prowler nabbed a man’s motorbike on S. Oxford Street on the night of Sept. 2.

The victim told cops he parked his bike between DeKalb and Lafayette avenues around 4 p.m., and returned the next morning to discover it stolen.

A quick bite

Some crook stole a man’s car on Fulton Street on Sept. 6.

The victim told police he left his car running between Vanderbilt and Clinton avenues to grab a bite to eat across the street at 8:50 p.m., and returned later to discover that — surprise, surprise — his vehicle had vanished.

Bad credit

A thief stole a man’s electronic bicycle on Clermont Avenue on Sept. 4.

The victim told police the bandit asked if he could give his battery-powered ride a spin around the block near Atlantic Avenue at around 2 p.m., but the scoundrel never looked back, and kept riding, and riding.

Electronics swipe

Police cuffed a man for allegedly stealing electronics from a car parked at Fleet Street on Sept. 4.

The victim told police that he left his car door unlocked near Willoughby Street between 3:30 p.m., and returned a few hours later to find his tablet and laptop worth $2,000 stolen.

But a witness pointed out the defendant as the thieving culprit, and police cuffed the suspect on Flatbush Avenue near State Street on Sept. 9, slapping him with felony grand larceny charges, cops said.

Chain breaker

A thief snatched a delivery guy’s electronic bike he parked on Ashland Place on Sept. 8.

The victim told police he chained his bike to a tree at Fulton Street at around 4:15 p.m,, and returned later to find both lock, chain, and bike missing.
