Home Break-In, wallet theft
A 59-year-old woman was in the shower at her residence at West 63rd Street on February 18th, when she heard a knock at the door, but did not answer it. Because she is disabled, the woman told police, she always leaves her door unlocked. When she checked her apartment an hour after her shower, the victim noticed that her wallet was missing and $100 cash was taken, as well as her checkbook and passport. No arrests have been made.

Dermatologist’s Office Robbed
A 60-year-old female employee at a dermatologist’s office on West 86th Street received a call from the alarm company on February 16th stating that the alarm had gone off at her workplace. When she got there, the narcotics safe was open, but there were no signs of forced entry. There’s no camera at the location, and it is unknown if property was taken. The unidentified perpetrator is wanted for burglary.

Man Steals Laptop, Phone
A female employee at a boutique store on Broadway said that she was exiting the back room on February 14th in the afternoon, where only employees are permitted, and saw an unknown man. When questioned, the man stated he was lost. Later, the victim discovered her phone was missing, and the next day, her business laptop from the back room was also missing. In total, $1,800 worth of items was taken.

Grocery Store Stick-Up
Inside a grocery store on Columbus Avenue on February 13th, a 47-year-old male employee said that, while he was counting money in the cash register, an unknown male perpetrator displayed a firearm and said, “Buddy I’m going to need that.” The perpetrator reached over with his hand and removed almost $1,500 in cash from the cash register. The employee watched the perpetrator get into a taxi and leave, but memorized the plate number of the taxi. Police are on the lookout for a white Hispanic man, 5’7 and 190 pounds, with a light, clear complexion.
