61night-out-2014-4

The Sheepshead Bay community came together with police from the 61nd Precinct Tuesday to celebrate National Night Out Against Crime.

NYPD precincts in all five boroughs celebrated the event, a symbolic gathering initiated 31 years ago to show neighbors reclaiming their streets from violence and crime. New York City’s police force is joined by more than 15,000 communities across all 50 states.

Check out the photos from the event.

Cops say the man pictured above preyed on a 70-year-old woman, snatching a chain from her neck in broad daylight.

The alleged thief spotted the woman on Avenue U and Coyle Street last Wednesday, at approximately 11:00 a.m. He walked up to her, grabbed the chain and ran off, cops say.

Fortunately, the woman was not injured.

The crime is being classified as a grand larceny, which has been on the rise in the 61st Precinct this year. From January 1 to July 20, the command has seen an 18.8 increase in grand larceny incidents in 2014 over the same time period last year, according to Compstat. The only larger increase has been for another property crime, grand larceny auto. The two together are fueling the precinct’s 2.53 percent uptick in overall crime in the area.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.

night-out

Police forces across the nation will celebrate National Night Out Against Crime for the 31st year, and NYPD precincts in all five boroughs will be celebrating on Tuesday, August 5. The event is celebrated in more than 15,000 communities across all 50 states, representing the communities reclaiming their streets from violence and crime.

Locally, the 61st Precinct at 2575 Coney Island Avenue is kicking off the festivities at 5:00 p.m. Clown Simon will be there!

Also, there will be music, food, rides and ice cream. There have always been some great shows put on by kids, like last year’s dragon dance and the impromptu Gangnam Style performance by this 3-year-old:

It’s also a good opportunity to meet local elected officials and our precinct’s new commanding officer, Deputy Inspector Carlos Valdez.
