Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Bike thief

Police arrested a 45-year-old who they say jacked a man’s bike from Lafayette Avenue on Nov. 11.

The victim told cops that he chained his bike to a bicycle rack at 10:30 am. When he returned more than two hours later, his ride was gone.

An officer claimed he spotted the suspect with the victim’s bicycle the following day on Dekalb Avenue at 10 am and arrested him.


A 21-year-old suspect threatened a victim on Livingston Street on Sept. 28, according to investigators.

The victim was at work near Bond Street at 1:20 pm when the suspect repeatedly yelled at the victim, “I’m going to get you,” and threw the victim to the ground, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
