"The Allure of Brooklyn" Creates Hipster Criminals and Idiot Girlfriends

Image Via Gothamist

Gothamist reports that during last year's Memorial Day weekend festivities, self-proclaimed "hipster" Sophia Anderson and her "hipster" boyfriend Dan Sajewski, drunkenly drove Dan's parents' Benz through an old lady's (not a hipster) house in Long Island. Attempting to be the "cool girlfriend", Sophia swapped seats with Sajewski and took the blame for the crash to protect him from violating his probation. 

NOTE: Ladies, don't do this shit...it rarely works out in your favor. 

Surprise, Dan didn't pull through on a promised Hamptons vacay OR paying all Sophia's legal fees...but we saw that coming, didn't we?

Here's the clincher: Sophia's lawyer, John LoTurco, blames her relationship with Sajewski a little, but mostly he blames our fair borough for Anderson's problems. He states, “She’s doing great...without the negative influences of Daniel and the allure of Brooklyn." He continues, “The allure of Brooklyn was her boyfriend’s circle of friends and the hipster lifestyle that was going on at that period of time — the drinking, the drugging".

Update on Brooklyn Nets Player Caught Up In Sexual Assault Case

Last week, we ran a post about a possible legal snafu for Nets backup center, Andray Blatche. On January 8, a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia, where Blatche and a few friends were celebrating the athlete's contract extension with the Nets. Though Blatche admits that he was present at the time, he denies having any knowledge about the assault.

The alleged victim is now saying that isn't the case. In an interview with ABC Philadelphia affiliate, the 21 year-old woman said: "He [Blatche] was not oblivious. He was aware the whole time." In addition, ABC-6 Philadelphia recently claimed that Philadelphia police found "date rape drugs" in the hotel room, but quickly amended the statement by saying that the police were unsure of the substance they found.

Froyo Robber Caught, Apologizes

A man wanted for robbing 12 businesses through out Manhattan and Brooklyn, including the Tasti-D-Lite on 7th Ave near 9th Street, has been caught, and is REALLY REALLY SORRY. 47 year-old Robert Coston was arrested on Friday after a tipster reported him to Crimestoppers. He's currently charged with 10 counts of robbery in the first degree.

"My sons are in college," Coston told reporters after his arrest. "I was looking for work. I couldn’t find work. I’m very sorry for what I did, though."

The owner of the Tasti-D-Light that Coston allegedly robbed described him as "calm and apologetic" during the incidents. So there's that.

There's a Froyo Robber on the Loose

Surveillance footage of the suspect

To all the local froyo joints: STOCK UP ON SECURITY.

Shortly after 9PM last Sunday night, an armed robber with a strong attraction for hitting up froyo establishments held up the Tasti-D-Lite on 7th Ave near 9th Street. The same man allegedly robbed the same store on October 17th, 26th and 31st. The suspect, featured in the above photo, is a black male in his 40’s, between 5 ‘10” and 6' tall, usually wearing a dark jacket and jeans, and is ballsy in that he's never worn a mask. Despite holding up the stores at gunpoint, no one has been hurt during the robberies. So that’s good.

Not limited to Tasti-D, the same perp is wanted for up to 12 robberies in Brooklyn and Manhattan, all committed in the same manner. His other targets include several Subway restaurants in Fort Greene and downtown Brooklyn, Blue Marble Ice Cream in Cobble Hill on Court Street near Wyckoff Street, the Clearview Cinema on East 62nd Street in Manhattan, and a dry cleaner in Park Slope that he has robbed twice.

While we may never know why a third of his robberies have targeted the venerable froyo establishment, we can try to make some educated guesses:

Police Seek F Train Flasher

The man featured in the above video has allegedly exposed himself to two women on the F train: once after boarding the 7th Ave stop, and another after boarding the Church Ave stop. 

One of those women snapped a video of the flasher, which has now been posted online in an effort to identify him. Police are still searching for the man, so keep an eye out, F train riders.
