Update, September 12, 9:58 p.m.:
It has been determined that Robbery 2 was originally reported with the incorrect address, police have stated. The robbery did not take place at Sackett Street. The correct address for that incident actually occurred at the intersection of Henry Street and Summit. The article has since been revised to reflect that information.
The following information was supplied by the 76th Precinct. It does not indicate a conviction.
While walking along Dyckman Street between Dwight and Richards Streets on Saturday, August 25 at 12:05 p.m. a woman, 33, was approached by a strange man who immediately pointed a black revolver at her head. The victim threw her iced coffee in the face of the assailant, tossed her cell phone and bag on the ground, then fled, police said. The thief—described as a male, black, 5 foot 9, with braids and a dark complexion—took an HTC Android Incredible phone ($350), a Hurley wallet ($20), $128 cash, debit cards, two Moleskin notebooks ($40 each) and a Chrome messenger bag with a silver seatbelt buckle ($150). The case is still under investigation.
Another woman was robbed at the corner of Henry and Summit Streets in the middle of the afternoon, last week, according to police. On Tuesday, August 28 at 4:55 pm, the female, 28, was approached by two unknown individuals from behind. “Hey, b****” one called out to her, then displayed a firearm and pointed it in her direction. The crooks took a red Coach purse ($250), a grey Coach wallet ($100), an iPod ($100), an MTA card and other miscellaneous items, said police. The assailants are described as two males, both age 16, about 5 foot 10 and weighing between 110 and 115 pounds.
At the corner of Columbia and Luquer Streets at 5:02 p.m. on Friday, August 24, two women, both 25, were walking when they were approached by a male and a female bearing a firearm. The thieves then demanded their belongings. Items taken: a Morocco wallet ($10), two credit cards, a social security card, a Canadian citizen card, $14 in cash, an iPhone ($10O), iPod mini ($125) and a Massachusetts state driver’s license. Police are searching for one male, black, age 13, approximately 5 foot, weighing 120 pounds, who was joined by a female, black, also 13. The pair was last seen carrying a green Whole Foods shopping bag, which police say criminals sometimes use for stashing loot.
