Drunken Revelry Gone Terribly Awry

In what appeared to be a night of drunken revelry gone horribly wrong, a 28-year old man was stabbed by an unknown assailant with a glass bottle, on Bedford Ave. adjacent to North 6th St. just after 4 a.m. on March 2, according to Police.

The victim remembers approaching a Dodge Magnum along with his friends. The vehicle was parked on the street, and was occupied by two female passengers in the front and three male passengers in the back.

An argument soon broke between the victim, his friends, and those in the car. Shortly after a red Mazda Sedan arrived along with five other men who joined the fight – one broke a glass bottle and stabbed the victim in the lower right abdomen, according to police.

Both cars fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The victim was taken to Woodhull hospital and treated for stab wounds.

Over $6,000 worth of Electronic Goods Stolen

A Driggs Ave. resident was robbed of items worth over $6,000 from his own apartment – all while he was fast asleep.

The thief entered the victim’s apartment by picking the lock and made off with loot that included Bose headphones, a Macbook, a debit card, a camera, and a usb chord between the hours of 11 a.m. and just after midnight on February 22nd, according to Police.

The victim waited three days to inform the police wanting to first examine the security footage from the building himself, according to police.

Police are looking at security footage from adjacent buildings to get leads on the thief.

Date Night Disaster

This thief was seeking more than just a good night.

A 25 year-old Morgan Ave. resident was duped by a man she met on the dating website Plenty of Fish, and invited to spend the night at her place, according to police.

Upon returning home from work on February 28, the victim discovered missing a Macbook Pro, Bose Headphones, an iPad, and a Playstation.

The victim told police that the man she met on Plenty of Fish, and her were the only two people in the apartment for the entirety of the evening and up until she left for work the next morning.

The Case of the Missing Engagement Ring

It was the odd case of the missing ring – a page right out of Sherlock Holmes mystery, but one that must not have been quite so fascinating for the 31-year-old victim who believes her engagement ring to have been stolen from her apartment on North 3rd St., according to police.

The victim told police that the last time she remembered having the ring on was when she went to the bathroom to apply tanning lotion and took the ring off.

When the victim woke up the following morning, February 27, she realized the ring wasn’t on her finger and went back to trace it in the bathroom only to be dumbstruck by its disappearance.

Police are continuing to investigate the matter.

iPhone Stolen on North 9th St.

A 23-year-old was robbed of his iphone while walking along North 9th St. between Roebling St. and Driggs Ave. just after 3 a.m. on March 2, according to police.

The victim was walking westbound on North 9th between Roebling and Driggs Ave., when an unknown man snatched the phone from his left hand. The Victim pursued perpetrator on foot but was outrun.

He was unable to find the phone through the iPhone tracking service locator – a feature he had not installed on the phone, according to police.

Police are observing surveillance footage from the area and continuing to investigate the matter further.
