The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Southern Q Blotter - Beware Burglars, Biters and Builders

From the Brooklyn Daily come these neighborhood crime reports. Warning: The second blot is particularly bizarre. The final entry points to a robber with a penchant for round, simple math.

A 24-year-old man was arrested for pillaging a man’s Caton Avenue apartment on Oct. 22, taking his laptop. The victim told police that he was returning to his home between E. 21st Street and Flatbush Avenue at 3:30 pm when he saw the suspect leaving his apartment with the computer. When he attempted to stop the suspect, the man drew a knife, threatening the victim before leaving with his property, police reported.

Police arrested a 48-year-old woman who they say beat and bit a man on Westminster Road on Oct. 21. The victim told police that he was between Church and Caton avenues at 2:45 am when the suspect punched him, hit his hands with a glass vase, and then bit his shoulders. The victim was rtaken to a hospital following the attack, where he received five stitches in his hands, cops said.

A 33-year-old man was arrested for pilfering $1,000 worth of building materials from a Caton Avenue apartment building on Sept. 25. Surveillance footage shows the suspect and an accomplice entering the building between Parade and St. Pauls places at 2:30 am, where they grabbed 10 wooden doors, 10 buckets of compound, and 10 buckets of plaster from the lobby and fled.
