Compiled by Amanda Woods Sweet Music for Thief One musician found that her car is not a safe place to keep her instrument. A 21-year-old woman told police that she parked her car on the southwest corner of Park Avenue and East 95th Street, and when she returned at 7:30 p.m. she discovered that someone had broken her rear driver's side window, taking one violin and two bows-worth $22,000 total-from the back seat. None of the items were recovered. Attempted Break-In Someone shut off the power and pried the lock at F.D. Jewelry on East 65th Street between Madison and Fifth avenues overnight on Sunday. The store's hallway was also found with four holes punched in the walls, the third-floor camera was turned upside down and the roof door was broken. However, the perp was not able to break into the store because the side doors were blocked by a wall, and nothing was taken from the store. Armed Robbery A 30-year-old woman told police that two men stopped her on the northwest corner of Third Avenue and East 95th Street on Saturday at 10:30 p.m., pushing a gun against her stomach, saying, "Give it up or we will hurt you." When the woman handed over her iPhone 4, worth $300, the men fled east on 95th. The phone was not recovered. Motorcycle Stolen Off the Street One 40-year-old motorcycle driver woke up to a startling realization: his black Suzuki motorcycle, which he had parked on East 72nd Street between First and York avenues on the evening of July 19, was missing. The motorcycle, worth $6,600, has not yet been recovered. Scooter Stolen A 52-year-old man told police that he parked his scooter on York Avenue between East 72nd and 73rd streets, and when he returned on Sunday at 12:30 a.m., he realized that it was gone. A security camera captured footage of the 2013 Kymco Super 8 scooter-worth $3,400-being placed in a van and taken away. Random Attack A 38-year-old man told police that he was leaving work at 11 a.m. on July 17; as he walked at the northeast corner of First Avenue and East 90th Street, a group of men punched him to the ground. The man told police that he had been drinking and was unable to describe his attackers, neither who they were nor what they were wearing. He suffered facial swelling from the attack.
