Cutting Exchange

So much for the MTA’s attempts to promote civil behavior on the subways. At 1:20 p.m. on Thursday, June 1, a 29-year-old man was getting off the northbound A train at the Fulton Street station when he had a verbal dispute with an unknown man. The latter then cut the 29-year-old on his left arm. The victim was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital for treatment.

Pier Pressure

A man made off with a long list of construction tools. At 11:05 a.m. on Monday, May 29, a man entered a construction site at 89 South Street through an open entryway leading from Pier 16, police said. Security personnel at the site were conducting hourly checks when they saw a broken pane of glass and went to investigate. On the second floor of the site, they saw a man wearing construction gear leaving the site with several tools. They stopped the man, who then dropped the property and fled southbound on South Street. When they came in the following morning, construction company personnel at the site discovered about $16,000 worth equipment missing.


A thief snatched a Portland woman’s bag faster than a New York minute. At noon on Saturday, June 3, a 32-year-old woman from Portland, OR was working at a table in front of the Nike store at the northwest corner of Spring Street and Broadway. She took her eyes off her belongings, and when she went to reach for her bag she discovered it was gone. The items stolen included an iPhone 7 Plus, a MacBook worth $2,300.

Abercrombie & Filch

A gang committed a flagrant abuse of the law snatching fragrances. At 2:35 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31, five men entered the Abercrombie & Fitch store at 199 Water Street and made off with 60 bottles of fragrance totaling $5,480. Police searched the neighborhood but couldn’t sniff out the sweet-smelling shoplifters.

Blue Bike Blues

Ten minutes were too long for a man to leave his bike unattended downtown. At 10:50 p.m. on Friday, June 2, a 34-year-old man locked his bicycle to scaffolding in front of 126 Chambers Street. When he returned just ten minutes later he found his bike was gone and the cut bike lock was sitting on the ground. The stolen vehicle was a blue bike, the brand and model unspecified, valued at $1,500.
