Police have apprehended a B.B. gunner allegedly responsible for a robbery inside the Holiday Inn on Union Street near Fourth Avenue.
According to published reports, Fatmir Dajbabic, 28, allegedly entered the hotel on New Year’s Eve and pulled his B.B. gun on a hapless victim.
He ran off with an undisclosed amount of money, officials alleged.
The new Year’s Eve heist was one of several robberies that Dajbabic allegedly committed over the last week.
Police alleged that he robbed two Dunkin Donuts in Brighton Beach and Midwood before heading to Park Slope. He is also responsible for a robbery in Bay Ridge.
Cops cornered Dajbabic on January 2, charging him with multiple counts of robbery.
Christmas Eve heist
Police are looking for two men responsible for robbing a straphanger on a Q train bounded through Park Slope.
Officials said that the suspects, one of whom was wearing a Yankees jacket, jumped their victim on a Manhattan-bound train at 7 p.m. on December 24.
The duo pulled a gun and forced the victim to fork over his property before ditching the train car when the doors opened at the Seventh Avenue station.
Armed with surveillance footage of the two suspects, cops are renewing their hunt for the perpetrators.
Anyone with information regarding this incident 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 man armed with a shovel caused a disturbance at a Park Slope home on December 28.
Police allege that Nazaret Zuyer illegally entered the building at 3 a.m. and rang a tenant’s bell.
When the tenant -- who Zuyer reportedly knows -- looked through the peep hole to see who it was, the visitor began hitting the door with the show shovel, police alleged.
He was allegedly threatening to burn the building down when cops responding to a 911 call took him into custody, charging him with attempted burglary and trespass.
It was unclear just why Zuyer had visited the address, which isn’t being disclosed because of his relationship to the victim.
Robbed of cell
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
A 20-year-old woman told cops last week that an acquaintance of hers had thrown her to the ground and ran off with her cell phone during a confrontation on Sixth Avenue.
The victim said that she was nearing First Street at 7 p.m. on December 19 when her “friend” attacked. She suffered a slight injury as a result, cops were told.
Police were still looking for the would-be thief as this paper went to press.
Bilked of $3G
A 28-year-old new mom lost $3,000 after a Christmas Grinch lured her into a “found money” scam, police said.
The woman said she was taking her baby along Fourth Avenue near 22nd Street when an unidentified woman approached, claiming that she had just found $8,500.
Then, seconds later, a man came up asking if they had found any money that he had just lost.
Both the victim and the unidentified woman said no, cops were told.
When the man left, the stranger said that she was willing to split the money with the victim as long as she was willing to give her $3,000 as a show of “good faith.”
Successfully hooked, the woman took the stranger to her bank on Fifth Avenue near 14th Street.
But once she withdrew the money and left the bank, the stranger grabbed the cash and ran of, leaving the victim empty handed.
Cops were still looking for the swindler as this paper went to press.
Cops are looking for a lock-clipping looter who spent his Christmas raiding the S&M Pizza Bakery Corp. at 469 Fourth Avenue.
Workers said that someone snapped the locks to the eatery’s roll down gates sometime after 5 p.m. on December 25.
The heist hadn’t been discovered until 11:40 a.m., but by then it was already too late: about $100 in receipts, as well as a DVR and a wireless phone had been taken.
