From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: A Robbery At Carmine’s?

A person we’ll call “E” Writes:

Miss Heather:Any info on the robbery at Carmine’s Pizza on Norman Ave. yesterday? I was in there around 6:30 for my evening slice, and the place was filled with cops. I thought they were just ordering slices until I realized they were questioning the workers. Evidently, some guy pulled a gun and made of with $600 or so. In broad daylight! Anyhow, please pass along anything you hear…Thanks

I have not heard anything here— but if anyone reading this has the 411 please share via comments or email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire.


UPDATE, August 28, 2913: I have received word an arrest was made!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Home Invasion At The Viridian?

Filed under: 11222, Criminal Activity, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

You read me correctly, folks. None other than the head of the 94th Precinct, Deputy Inspector Hurson, has alerted me that a home invasion came to pass at 110 Green Street (AKA: The Viridian) involving two men— one of whom was sporting a fire arm— today. Thus far no arrests have been made.

This just goes to show that even a building with a doorman can be vulnerable to individuals with very bad intentions. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: be sure the front door of your building and apartment is locked at all times; be mindful of your surroundings and above all if you see something say something to the police. That’s what they’re here for!

From The Greenpoint Grapevive: A(nother) Robbery On Nassau Avenue?

I learned from a tipster this morning that another robbery has come to pass on Nassau Avenue this morning at 2:00 a.m.. This time at the Mini Mart Deli & Grocery at the southeastern corner of McGuinness Boulevard and Nassau Avenue (as seen above). I decided to swing by and ask what happened. The very nice lady behind the counter confirmed that a robbery did indeed come to pass between “2:00 and 3:00 in the morning” and that two men were involved. No word about whether or not guns were involved. The most important thing is no one got hurt. Otherwise: YIKES!

New York Shitty Day Starter: An Update Regarding The Robbery At 93 Nassau Avenue

This morning I awakened to find an email from Deputy Inspector Hurson of the 94th Precinct. I am pleased to pass along that one of the men responsible for last week’s robbery/shooting has been apprehended! His name is Alex Lagoa and he was released five years ago after serving a twenty year sentence for murder. It should be noted he shot no less than two police officers while being arrested for the aforementioned crime. Yikes!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: An Assault/Attempted Robbery On Montrose Avenue

I have refrained from posting this item until I had all the facts. Now that I have them I will pass them along here. On Thursday, July 28, at 9:00 p.m. a young woman was assaulted after entering her apartment building on Montrose Avenue.* The assailant, who wore a red bandanna to conceal his face, wrestled her to the floor. While her companions watched he attempted to use a box cutter to cut the strap of her purse. She had the presence of mind to (as it was described to me) “scream bloody murder”. Luckily, this was enough to scare him. He fled the building and rode off on a bicycle. A police report has been filed.

It was posited to me by my tipster that this man managed to gain entrance to the building because both doors gracing the entrance were left open. Please, PLEASE let this be a warning to all reading this tome to exercise additional vigilance when exiting and entering your homes. Do not simply “buzz” people into your building. Demand that all visitors identify themselves or better yet: go to the front door in person and let people in.

For all intents and purposes Montrose Avenue is a highly trafficked and pretty safe street. If this can happen there (a stone’s throw from the 90th Precinct, I’ll add) it can happen anywhere. Stay safe, folks!
