Police Blotters 90th Precinct

Stalker Ex-Girlfriend

A 31-year-old woman received a rude awakening from her ex-girlfriend on the morning of April 5th inside her apartment on Division Avenue.

The victim told police that she was awakened by her 22-year-old ex, attempting to kiss her on the mouth.

When the victim questioned her ex-girlfriend about entering her apartment, she answered that she had studied picking locks online.

The victim promptly called her aunt who called police, causing the ex-girlfriend to flee the apartment.

The victim also told police that her ex had attempted to contact her several times over the past few weeks using different telephone numbers.

A restraining order against the suspect is already in place and is valid until March 2015.

Biker Gang Nabs iPhone

A gang of three bicyclists robbed a woman of her iPhone on Metropolitan Avenue late in the afternoon of April 5th.

The victim, 28, told police that she was walking along Metropolitan Avenue when three men on bicycles came up from behind her: the first snatched her phone, a second said thank you, and then all three made off westbound on Metropolitan Avenue.

The police were unable to track the phone, and the search for the perps is ongoing.

Attempted IRS Scam

In what appears to be an attempted tax scam, a woman was almost defrauded of $3,500 on April 3rd.

The victim, 31, received a call at about 8 p.m. at her South 1st Street apartment, from a man who claimed to represent the IRS, and said he needed to collect unpaid taxes.

The victim handed over her social security number and home address and made her way to the bank to withdraw the money. It was then that she realized the whole thing was a scam.
She contacted the IRS the following day, and was told that everything was in order, however the harassment on the part of the scam artists continued unabated.

Over the next few days, she received between 11 and 13 calls by the perp and his accomplice from two different numbers. The perps threatened to “ruin her life,” according to the police report. They even went to the extent that they knocked on her door the following day, but were unable to find her at home.

Police are continuing to investigate the matter.

Attacked by a Scrapper

A 47-year-old man was attacked in front of 120 Grattan Street on March 31st at about 9:30 a.m. by a man he described as a scrapper.

The victim told police that someone he knew approached him, argued with him and then struck him on the left side of his head with a pole splitting open his left ear and causing swelling to the left side of his face.

The perp then fled eastbound on Grattan Street toward Porter Avenue. The victim was taken to Woodhull hospital for further examination.

The victim told police that the scrapper went by the name “Q” in the neighborhood.

Police are continuing to investigate the matter.

Shooting at Flushing Avenue

In a double shooting incident outside the NYCHA housing facility on Flushing Avenue, two men were injured on April 2nd.

The victims, ages 23 and 20, reported that just after 1:30 a.m. an unknown man dressed in a black hoodie and carrying a weapon opened fire on them outside the building.

The first victim was shot twice – once in the right torso and then in the upper left leg.

The second victim was shot in the right foot.

Both men were taken to Bellevue Hospital to be treated. The suspect is still at large.

Man Robbed at Gunpoint

A 49-year-old man was robbed of $400 in cash at gunpoint on April 1st.

The victim was walking along South 5th Street toward Hooper Street around 10 p.m., when two men walked up to him, one of whom pointed a revolver at him and said, “Give me everything you got.”

The second perp searched him and grabbed the $400.

But that wasn’t the end of the ordeal – attempting to intimidate the victim further, the man holding the gun brought it closer to the victim and then fired a single bullet into the sky, before the pair ran away from the scene.

Police are continuing to investigate the matter.

Bike Smashed to Pulp

An argument on the sidewalk of South 8th Street led to one man’s bicycle being smashed to pulp.

The victim, 36, was taking pictures of a pothole on the street, when another man driving a black SUV hurled insults at him.

This prompted the victim to respond with an inappropriate gesture, which then escalated into a verbal argument between the victim and the driver.

The incensed driver then pulled out a wooden pole and attempted to hit the victim, but missed – instead he took out his frustrations on the victim’s bicycle and smashed it, before dashing off in his SUV.

Lover’s Tiff

It’s a question of he said / she said in this lovers’ tiff in which both parties claimed that the other beat them, according to police.

The couple, who are no longer together, told police in separate statements that they were eating at a restaurant on South 4th Street on the morning of April 5th when things quickly got out of hand.

The 37-year-old woman claims her 32-year-old boyfriend pulled out a 3×3 board and hit her with it causing bruising to her left leg.

The boyfriend however has a different story. He told police that his girlfriend began beating him with the same board just as he was about to order food. He says she tried to hit him on the head but managed to get his arm and struck it about 10 times, before the boyfriend fled the restaurant.
