Man scammed

A 36-year-old man reported that an acquaintance stole more than $500 from him using an app while pretending to use his phone for a call. The victim told police that he was with the suspect at the Dream club on West 16th Street on March 24 when he let her use his cellphone to make a call. She apparently instead sent herself $650 through the Venmo app.

Jacket pilfered

A 32-year-old man reported that his jacket was stolen when he was inside Flash Factory at 229 West 28th Street in the early morning of March 27. He told police that he was leaving the club about 4 a.m. and had his jacket in his hand when an unknown man said to him, “that’s my jacket!” The victim then handed his jacket to the suspect so he could check the label but the man took the coat and fled. The victim said that he had been drinking and was dumb-founded.

Smokes stolen

A 31-year-old employee of K&K Convenience Store at 364 West 23rd Street told police that a man stolen cartons of cigarettes from the store on Friday, April 13 around 9:55 p.m. The employee said that the suspect entered the store and went into the back, entering the stockroom, which is open and doesn’t have a door or lock. Police said that the suspect removed four cartons of Marlboro cigarettes, put them in his backpack and left the store without paying. Police said that the four cartons of cigarettes are valued at $468.

Subway seat dispute

A 69-year-old woman reported that she was harassed while she was on a downtown A train near the West 14th Street/Eighth Avenue stop on Friday, April 13 at 1:30 p.m. The victim told police that she was traveling downtown from West 34th Street when she got into an argument with a woman in her early 20s over a seat. The victim told police that when she ultimately sat down, the other woman stroked the victim on the head with the intention of annoying and harassing her. The suspect got off the train at 14th Street and fled in an unknown direction.
