DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Three teenagers stole $400 from a Downtown Brooklyn newsstand after one attacked the newsstand’s owner last week.
The 58-year-old man noticed one of the teens standing outside the Borough Hall newsstand’s door, at 50 Court St., around 8:55 a.m. on June 16, when he walked outside to see if the teen needed help, according to the NYPD.
The teen, who police said is about 17, then punched the owner several times, causing him to fall to the ground, according to a police report.
The teen went into the newsstand and stole $400 while two other teens acted as lookouts, police said.
The teens fled in an unknown direction, police said.
The newsstand owner sustained minor injuries and refused medical attention, police said.
No arrests have been made, according to police.
Other notable crimes from the 84th and 88th precincts, according to police, include:
► A man robbed a 37-year-old woman who was wheeling a stroller with her baby inside into her home on South Oxford Street in Fort Greene around 2:22 p.m. on June 13. The man told her, “I’ve got a gun in my pocket, give me your wallet.” He took the contents of her wallet and fled northbound on South Oxford Street before he returned and demanded her cell phone so she couldn’t call anyone.
