Choke artist

A thief attempted to rob a couple in Fort Greene Park on Sept. 30.

The would-be victims told cops that they were on a romantic walk in the dangerous greenspace at around 9:30 pm when the woman was put in a chokehold by a thief who tried to take her purse. The thief eventually let go and ran away — and cops later nabbed a 16-year-old suspect.

Where: S. Portland Avenue and DeKalb Avenue
