DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Two men were stabbed and another was sliced within a single hour on the same street corner outside Brooklyn Criminal Court, police said.
The first attack happened at 1:05 p.m. on March 23 on the northeast corner of Schermerhorn and Smith streets, when a 16-year-old was stabbed in the right shoulder by an unknown assailant, police said.
The teen was taken to Methodist Hospital for treatment, police said.
Then, at 1:30 p.m., a man swung an unknown object at a group of people on the same corner, cutting an 18-year-old man on his left hand, police said.
And at 2 p.m., a man leaving Brooklyn Criminal Court stabbed a 24-year-old man standing at the same corner in the back with an unknown object for bumping into him, police said.
It was unclear if the three attacks were related, the NYPD said.
Other notable crimes in the 84th Precinct, according to police, include:
► Two men stole a pair of $160 rose-gold Beats headphones from an 18-year-old man, who met up with them at the High Street subway station around 10:07 a.m. on March 20 after agreeing to sell the headphones via Facebook.
One of the suspects asked to try on the headphones but ran off with them, while a second suspect held the emergency gate open for him. The victim tried to hold the second suspect back, but he was pepper-sprayed in the face before both suspects fled. Police were able to arrest the second suspect, a 16-year-old, whose name is being withheld because he is a minor.
He was charged with robbery, menacing, petit larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault and harassment, according to court documents. He is being held on $20,000 bond and is due in court on April 10. His attorney declined to comment on the case.
► A 30-year-old man who was on vacation between March 7 and March 20 discovered his MacBook Air and bicycle were missing from his apartment at 150 Remsen St. when he got home around 6 p.m. on March 20, police said. The victim told police he thinks the burglar got in through the fire escape.
► A thief snatched a 3 train conductor’s iPhone 6 Plus from her hands as the train was pulling into the Hoyt Street station on the southbound track, police said. The conductor remained on the train and got off at the Nevins Street station, where she notified police.
