Williamsburg is looking pretty bad-ass these days, according to the Brooklyn Paper's police blotter. Some highlights:
A crazy roommate vs. roommate fight ends in one losing a finger and the other losing "$300 in cash, a Treo cellphone, an IBM ThinkPad laptop, and a Compaq laptop". (B/t Wythe and Bedford)
A 25 year old actress was robbed at Luna Lounge.
A 41 year old man thought he was being pranked when he was robbed by 2 kids who, when asked, definitely weren't joking when they told him to turn over his cash. They ended up taking a gold watch, cellphone, and $135 cash.
Two roommates, (who work at home by the way), were robbed of over $4,000 worth of while they were at work, at the corner of Graham and McKibbin St.
Some 17 year kid was a walking cliche when he said, "Gimme your F--king money" to some dude walking by the Williamsburg bridge. Gimme your F--king money is the most original thing you can say when robbing someone? Please. You better make me laugh for $70 in cash. (Roebling and the Bridge)
Two dudes mugged at 29 year old with a razor blade. Cops caught them and found a bag of cocaine. That's like sticking up a bank with a needle. Or burning someone's eyebrows for $20 bucks with your safety-less lighter. Freeze, motherf--ker, or I'll throw a spoon atchu! (B/t Union and Lorimer)
And finally, at my favorite try-to-balance-on-my-bike-while-waiting-for-the-light-to-turn-green intersection:
"A thug repeatedly pounded a woman in the face, all so he could make off with her $50 headphones. The disproportionately violent attack, at 12:05 am on Nov. 22, took place as the 31-year-old woman was at the corner of Grand Street and Manhattan Avenue. After the attack, the thug, whose face remained partially covered the whole time, fled. The victim, complaining of severe pain in her head, was taken to Woodhull Hospital."Watch your back, bitches, and have a great weekend!
