Brooklyn Robbers Clean The Crime Scene

Since last summer, 50 different businesses through out Brooklyn -- mostly bodegas and 99-cent stores -- have been robbed by the same group of bandits. Their MO? BLEACH. After the burglars break in and steal the store's ATM machine, they splash the putrid-smelling cleansing agent all over the crime scene.

Sounds like this tactic is working out for them though. Each time they've managed a -- wait for it -- clean getaway. But seriously, I hope the police catch them.

Park Slope synagogue gets a designer Sukkah

Rendering by Babak Bryan and Henry Grosman

Who said the starctecture trend was over?

As of yesterday, Park Slope's Beth Elohim has a fancy new designer sukkah.

When Sukkot rolls around, most synagogues put up a sukkah, a make-shift praying shelter covered in twigs  much like the ones used by Israelites during their 40-year exile. Not the Beth Elohim synagogue.

The Latin Kings Totally Love Park Slope

If you're not up with your gang info, the Latin Kings are said to be the largest and most organized Hispanic street gangs in the country, dating back to 1940's Chicago. The New York branch formed in the late 80's, and is said to be far more dangerous and superior to their Chicago originators. Members are identified by their Black and Gold colored clothing and beads.

Oh, and guess what? They're taking over Park Slope! Specifically, the handball courts behind Junior High School 51 in Washington Park, near 4th Ave and 3rd Street. Yay!

Sunset Park Man Arrested This Morning After Sexual Attack

Earlier today police arrested a man for groping an 18 year-old woman in Sunset Park this past Monday. 26 year-old  Adolfo Martinez, who was identified through surveillance video and an incriminating statement, has been charged with forcible touching and sexual abuse. He's currently being held in central booking, and will be placed in a line-up for previous victims of attack to view.

Martinez is now the second man to be arrested this month in connection with at least one sexual attack in Brooklyn. You hear that, copycats and fellow gropers? We're catching you dipshits. Ain't nothin' gonna' break our stride.

Here's Our Park Slope WTF Moment of The Day

"So....I was walking my dog on 6th Avenue early morning on Sunday, October 2nd, and at the corner of 3rd street I started to hear somebody laughing his ass off, but could not understand where the loud laugh was coming from. Then at the corner with 3rd st I saw this guy on a tree. Most likly intoxicated, but so happy that he put me in a good mood. After a couple of minutes an ambulance from the Methodist hospital arrived and had him removed."
