Captain Manson, 104th Precinct, just advised me we had two more crimes in Maspeth:
- Burglary yesterday, Wednesday 3/13, about 7:30-7:45 pm, 52nd/74th Street. Perpetrator cut bedroom screen, entered and rifled through items as alarm went off. Homeowner didn't think anything was stolen at time report was taken.
- Robbery, Tuesday 3/12, approx 3:30 pm, Grand/69th Place. Male black 13 yrs robbed cell phone from 11-year old male Hispanic. Arrest was made. Captain Manson did not know which school kids came from - wasn't mentioned on report.
Joann Berger, Comet's School Liaison, and I are trying to get the MTA to give us a couple of extra Q58 buses at IS73 to help deter youth from hanging out after school. To date, MTA hasn't responded. We'll follow up.
