DI courageous

Car thieves beware! Everyone is out to get you — even commanding officers from other precincts!

A 45-year-old man was busted for breaking into cars in Kensington last week after he ended up in the sights of Deputy Inspector John Argenziano, the commanding officer of the neighboring 78th Precinct.

Police said that Argenziano was on duty driving through the neighborhood at 10:30 am on June 14 when he saw his suspect checking door handles near the corner of Caton Avenue and East 4th Street.

Argenziano and Lt. Michael Fargo decided to hang back and follow the man as he walked to Fort Hamilton Parkway and Dahill Road, where he was caught breaking into a parked van.

The commanding officer collared him after the thief came out of the van with a stolen GPS in his hands, police said.

Robbed on Woodruff

A crew of gun wielding-thugs beat and threatened to shoot a man during a harried robbery on June 17.

The victim told police he was walking along Woodruff Avenue between St. Paul Place and Ocean Avenue just before 11 pm when the suspects jumped him, robbing him of his watch and cellular phone.

Responding officers apprehended one of the robbers after a search of the area, police said.

Busted for home invasion

A 22-year-old man was taken into custody last week in connection with a Flatbush home invasion that took place over a year ago.

Police said their suspect and three other males kicked in the door to the East 18th Street home, which is between Tennis Court and Albemarle Road, back on August 3, 2009, flashed guns and bum-rushed the couple inside.

The suspects pistol-whipped their victims and then bound their arms and legs with duct tape before running off with whatever they could get their hands on — pocketbooks, jewelry, sneakers and electronics equipment — police said.

Looting the landlord

Here’s a landlord-tenant dispute of a different kind: An East Flatbush property holder was arrested last week after he attacked his tenant for looting his car.

Police said that the landlord was taken into custody on June 15 after he allegedly charged at his 20-year-old tenant with a pair of pliers.

A day earlier, the landlord of the house on East 64th Street, near Foster Avenue, had called police, claiming someone had looted his car. His tenant said he saw someone break in to the car.

The next day the landlord saw the looter — the tenant — inside the car once again and attacked.

Cops charged the landlord with assault and menacing. The tenant was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Invasive procedure

A very busy thief broke into two Flatlands homes on the same day, police said.

Cops were told that someone crawled through the basement window of one of the homes, which is between East 43rd Street and Troy Avenue, sometime after 9 am, and removed an undetermined amount of property.

Police believe he entered a second home on the same block a short time later, taking a cellphone and some jewelry.

Trunk raid

A thief rooted through a 24-year-old man’s car trunk on June 19 as the vehicle sat just down the block from Amersfort Park.

The motorist said he left the car on Avenue I between East 39th and East 40th streets at 6:46 pm. He returned a short time later to learn that someone entered the truck and removed several pricey electronics found inside.

Bullet bonanza

Cops are investigating two separate shootings in East Flatbush.

Police said two perpetrators opened fire at 8:38 pm on three people during a clash in the courtyard of a building on New York Avenue, which is between Foster and Farragut roads, on June 5. The two assailants apparently had an ongoing disagreement with the victims. No one was seriously harmed.

Two days later police said that a man was shot when he went to answer a knock on his door at 6 pm on Lenox Road between Bedford and Rogers avenues. Before the man could open the door, the visitor pulled a gun and opened fire, punching bullets through the apartment door.

Police said the victim was shot in the leg.

Both shootings were still under investigation.

Anyone with information regarding either incident is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

One down...

Police have arrested one man and are vigorously searching for another in connection with a horrific rape in East Flatbush.

Cops identified 20-year-old Rony Delmas as one of the two men involved in the June 2 attack. They have also identified Delmas’ accomplice, who was still at large as this paper went to press.

The victim told police she was walking down Linden Boulevard near Bedford Avenue at 2 am when one of the suspects grabbed her and dragged her between two cars, where she was sexually assaulted.

The thug then took the woman to a secluded area where both men continued the attack.

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.

Wipe out graffiti

As the ongoing war against graffiti vandalism continues, cops are now offering a $500 reward to anyone with information that can lead them to graffiti vandals.

The hefty reward is part of the city’s new push to rid New York of graffiti, which is one of the leading quality of life complaints brought to police.

Officials said that cleaning up graffiti is essential to the plan, to show that the community is no longer going to tolerate marred and tagged-up walls and street corners.

According to police, there is a perception that if a community will tolerate graffiti, they will tolerate other criminal activities, such as drug dealing and prostitution.

Anyone with information about graffiti vandalism in their neighborhood is urged to contact either 311 or 911.
