Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Leg shot

A gunman shot a teen at Navy Walk on Oct. 26.

The 15-year-old boy told cops that, near Navy Street at 8:50 pm, he heard shots ring out and ran, before realizing bullets hit him in the leg.

Cops found four nine millimeter rounds at the scene and said the suspect fled, according to police reports.

Criminal couple

A knife-wielding pair of thieves raided a Flatbush Avenue Ext. store on Oct. 28.

A witness told police that, near Fulton Street at 5:10 am, the man and woman took toothpaste and mouthwash, and when he tried to stop them from stealing the goods, the guy swung a blade at him while his partner-in-crime pushed the victim to the ground.

Phone filcher!

Police are on the hunt for a gun-toting tough who held up a Myrtle Avenue phone store on Nov. 1.

An employee told cops that, between Ryerson and Hall streets at 2:40 pm, the knave came in waving a handgun and telling her to bag a bunch of cellphones.

The victim got several smartphones from a storage room and the jerk handcuffed her and told her to stay there, before he fled the scene, according to police reports.

Shove off!

Some jerk shoved a woman to the ground and stole her bag at Hanson Place on Nov. 1.

The victim told police that, at Ashland Place around 5:20 pm, the ruffian pushed her and threatened her at knifepoint before stealing her book bag and fleeing toward Lafayette Avenue.

Halloween scare

A brave woman scared off a would-be home invader from her Grand Avenue brownstone in the early hours of Nov. 1.

The victim told police that, between Putnam and Gates avenues at 2:15 am, she saw the hallway light turn on and found the raider in her house.

She yelled at him, causing him to flee out of the front door and out of sight, according to police reports.

Garage bandit

A pair of purloiners raided a woman’s Clermont Avenue garage on Oct. 26.

The victim told cops that, at Myrtle Avenue around 1:50 am, the two ne’er-do-wells snuck into her building and snatched an e-bike, along with a purse, laptop, deodorant, and cotton pads. 

Bonus pay

Cops collared a woman they accuse of stealing almost $34,000 from a Kent Avenue security company she worked at between April 14 and June 30.

The witness at the firm told police that, near Hooper Street, the suspect allegedly bagged the cash from the company.

Police arrested the woman on Oct. 29 for felony grand larceny charges.
