Cops are turning to the community’s help in their search for a missing deaf Kensington woman.
Faisia Nasir, 18, was last seen leaving her East 5th Street home on the afternoon of December 1. She never returned.
The Middle Eastern woman is 5’5” about 120 pounds and was last seen wearing a black scarf, black shirt, black pants and black shoes.
Anyone with information regarding this woman’s whereabouts is urged to come forward.
Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
A 31-year-old woman outraged over her husband’s infidelity decided to take her aggression on the most unlikely and undeserving of people -- the unborn child of her husband’s mistress.
Prosecutors allege that Kisha Jones, a resident of East New York, had concocted a fiendish scheme to end the East Flatbush woman’s pregnancy early by getting a fake prescription for the drug Cytotec, which is used to induce an abortion.
Jones then called the victim, 25-year-old Monique Hunter, pretending to be from the woman’s doctor’s office, claiming that the toxic drug had been prescribed for her and she could pick it up at Kings Pharmacy in Williamsburg -- where Jones had the order filled out.
Hunter believed Jones since the number on her caller ID came back to her doctor’s office. Jones allegedly used a device that faked the number when she contacted Hunter, officials said.
Police said that Jones picked up the Cytotec on October 26. After taking it she started suffering abdominal pain and was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where the baby was delivered prematurely.
Her first plan foiled, Jones refused to give up. Police allege that she got someone to try to feed a suspicious liquid to the baby in the hospital’s neo-natal intensive care unit.
The man who brought the two clear plastic bottles with a white liquid in said that Hunter had pumped some breast milk that she wanted given to her child.
The nursing staff never went through with the request after determining that the liquid did not have the same consistency as breast milk.
At first doctors thought that Hunter was trying to poison her own child. It’s now believed that Jones was responsible, according to published reports.
Jones had yet to be charged with the near poisoning. She has been charged with assault, attempted abortion, criminal possession of a forged instrument and forgery.
A security guard trying to pass himself off as a police officer was arrested last week when he allegedly caused a stir at a Flatbush Avenue clothing store, cops from the 70th Precinct said.
Workers at Cap USA near Cortelyou Road said that 34-year-old Richard Simon entered the store at 2:30 p.m. on December 5 wearing a jacket he said he had bought there.
Simon said he wanted to exchange the jacket and allegedly went ballistic when he was told that there were no exchanges.
Outraged, Simon allegedly shattered a mirror with his fist as he stormed out of the store.
When a worker approached him, demanding that he pay for the broken mirror, Simon allegedly flashed a badge, identifying himself as a police officer.
“You don’t know who you’re messing with, I’ll come back and finish you,” he allegedly threatened as he kept his hand on his hip, as if he had a gun.
The frightened worker let Simon leave. Cops from the 70th Precinct tracked down and arrested Simon a short time later.
Officers turned up a security guard shield, a handcuff case and a knife %u2013 no gun %u2013 when they frisked him, officials said.
Simon was ultimately charged with menacing, criminal mischief and criminal impersonation, prosecutors said.
A 35-year-old man was taken into custody early Sunday morning after he allegedly threatened the lives of two people.
Officials alleged that Raun Griffith had pulled the kitchen knife and swung the blade toward two men after an exchange of words at the corner of Nostrand and Church avenues at 4:15 a.m. on December 6.
One of Griffith’s alleged victims was sitting in a car during the altercation. Neither man was injured.
Responding officers took Griffith into custody after a short struggle, charging him with menacing, resisting arrest and criminal possession of a weapon.
About 24-hours before the above incident, a 19-year-old man was arrested for a kitchen knifepoint robbery at the corner of Nostrand Avenue and Clarendon Road.
Officials allege that Aarom Nisbit and a handful of accomplices had surrounded an East Flatbush resident just before 4 a.m. on December 5.
That’s when Nisbit allegedly pulled his knife. He also struck the victim in the face as he and his friends took an undisclosed amount off him, police alleged.
Cops took Nisbit into custody a short time later, charging him with robbery, grand larceny, assault and menacing.
The Shomrim Patrol is slowly becoming the scourge of petit crooks throughout the 70th Precinct.
Thanks to their eagle eyes, two more thieves were in custody, officials said last week.
Shomrim volunteers were patrolling near the Midwood/Flatbush Junction at 4 a.m. Friday morning, December 4, when they spied upon 20-year-old Tyrone Cary and 19-year-old Jeramie Morgan allegedly breaking into a car.
Patrol members alerted police to the theft and followed the two suspects until police apprehended the duo at Argyle Road and Ditmas Avenue, officials said.
Police have identified the 41-year-old man gunned down outside a neighborhood nightclub on Flatbush Avenue near Avenue H.
Cops found Kelvin Neil, 41, sprawled out outside of the Nocturnal nightclub at 3:40 a.m. on November 27. He had been shot in the torso.
Neil was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he died of his injuries.
Police, who believe that Neil may have been shot during a robbery, are asking anyone with information in connection with this slaying to come forward. Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
Two men were shot -- one fatally -- on Church Avenue in the days leading up to Thanksgiving.
Cops from the 67th Precinct said that they were dispatched to Church Avenue near East 55th Street at 1:42 a.m. on November 24 on a report of a male shot outside of Club Monique.
When they arrived, they found two men, a 23-year-old and a 25-year-old, suffering from gunshot wounds. The 25-year-old, who was shot in the shoulder and the chest, died of his injuries at Kings County Hospital. His younger friend was shot in the shoulder and is expected to survive, officials said.
Cops were still trying to determine what sparked the shooting as this paper went to press.
