Police Blotters: 94th Precinct

Skateboard Bust Up

A 26-year-old filming his skateboarding buddy was attacked by a teenager angling to steal his phone.

The victim said he was using his friend’s phone to record him riding on a skateboard around the intersection of Lorimer and Bayard Streets when a 16-year-old attempted to snatch the phone.

When unsuccessful on the first attempt the teenaged-thug punched the victim in the face, leaving him with a swollen upper lip.

Police are continuing to investigate the matter.

Cop Attack

In yet another brazen attack on a police officer, a 23-year-old suspect socked an officer in the face as the latter was attempting to cuff him, according to police.

The officer was attempting to arrest the perp on May 18 close to 4 a.m. at the intersection of Berry Street and North 6th Street.

After punching the officer, the victim continued to resist arrests by flaying his legs and arms, kicking the officer in the lower extremities, in the process.

He was escorted to the precinct shortly after.

Commercial Break-In

An agile thief broke into a commercial building on Banker Street on May 12 in the early hours of the morning, through the skylight, according to police.

A representative at the commercial building said the building alarm did not go off upon the suspect’s entry.

The thief made off with $50,000 in cash and checks that he stole by breaking into a safe in the building.

Police are continuing to investigate the matter.

Stolen Air-Conditioner

A 51-year-old man lost the air-conditioner he placed outside his Skillman Avenue apartment on May 15, according to police.

The victim said he left the air conditioner on the sidewalk at noon on the same day and went looking for someone who would help him carry it into the apartment.

When he returned 45 minutes later it was gone.

A neighbor’s security footage revealed that a man dressed in a baggy, black outfit had stolen the air conditioner using a dolly and fled eastbound on Skillman Avenue.

Police are continuing to investigate the matter.
