Other notable crimes in this month’s blotter at the 76th Precinct included the following from police sources:
► A robber stole $400 from a man after threatening him with a gun on Second Place in Carroll Gardens last week, police said. The culprit approached the victim from behind between Smith and Court streets about 6:20 p.m. Feb. 1 and said, “Drop the cash” and “Don’t look behind and run,” police said.
