Greenpoint–Northside

Easy access

An intruder took a woman’s laptop from her Conselyea Street apartment on Jan. 23 while she took a bathroom break.

The woman told police that she was hanging out in the living room of her abode between Lorimer Street and Union Avenue that night with her door open to let in fresh air.

She left the laptop in the living room while she went to use the bathroom at 10:15 pm, and when she came back out 35 minutes later, the laptop was gone.

Train robbery

A swift robber stole a woman’s iPhone while she was sitting on the L train at the Bedford Avenue station on Jan. 18.

The woman told police she was looking at her phone while sitting on the train headed for Manhattan at 7:40 pm when the train stopped at the station near N. Seventh Street.

In the blink of an eye, a teenager grabbed the phone out of her hand and ran off the train, she told police. The 23-year-old woman jumped out and tried to chase him, but could not keep up.

Cold-weather thief

A bandit took a man’s belongings out of his car parked on Wythe Avenue on Jan. 25.

The victim told police that he parked his vehicle near N. 10th Street at 11:30 pm for five minutes. When he came back, he discovered that his coat, boots, glasses, navigation system, camera, and headphones were all missing.

Keys to her heart

An upset boyfriend stole his girlfriend’s keys when the couple got into an argument in her Driggs Avenue apartment on Jan. 17, police reported.

The 22-year-old woman told police that she was fighting with her 25-year-old boyfriend in her abode between N. Seventh and N. Eighth streets at 6 pm when he suddenly grabbed her keys, tried to grab her cellphone, and stormed out of the apartment.

She asked the police to look for him, and says she has not seen him since.

and who exactly was being mugged back in the day before these transplants got here jjm, when crime was much worse? Just because it's phones now instead of gold chains doesn't mean the victims are any more to blame. That being said, people need to be more aware that if someone looks and acts like a thug, they often are in fact a thug.
