Reports from the NYPD's 78th Precinct

The following information was supplied by the 78th Precinct of the NYPD. It does not indicate a conviction.


Bedtime Robbery

A 32-year-old woman was asleep in her bed in her Lincoln Place home when someone crept into her apartment through a rear window on August 21 and stole about $2,000 worth of property.

The unknown robber came into the apartment sometime between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. and stole two laptop computers, headphones and other electronic devices.

It was not clear when the woman awoke and noticed the missing equipment or if the window had been locked.


Starbucks Purse Snatch

A 42-year old woman had her purse stolen from the Starbucks on 7th Avenue on August 21 after leaving it on the floor by the entrance as she went to order a cup of coffee.

An unknown thief grabbed the unattended bag just after 7:30 a.m., pulled out the woman's credit cards, then ditched the purse just outside the coffee shop.


(Text)book iPhone Theft

A 35-year-old woman had her iPhone snatched out of her hand by two teens as she texted a friend last Friday.

The woman was walking on Sackett Street near 5th Avenue at about 12:20 a.m. when the teens grabbed the phone out of her hand and ran towards 4th Avenue.

It happened so fast, that the victim only saw the back of the phone snatching duo's heads, but described them as being between 15 and 16 years old and wearing black shirts. 


A Rude Awakening

A 26-year-old man fell asleep on an R train and woke up to find his wallet and backpack had been stolen. 

The man got on the train at Union Sqaure in Manhattan sometime between 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m on August 21, fell asleep, then awoke at the 4th Ave-9th St station and realized his property was missing. 

Along with his wallet and debit cards, the man had an iPhone and iPod in his stolen backpack.
