PETIT LARCENY: The unkindness of strangers | There’s such a thing as being too trusting, and then there’s that thing where you’re being way, way, way too trusting. Such was the case with this first case. At around 11:50 a.m. on Fri., Oct. 20, an overly nice 22-year-old woman gave someone her cell phone to use, on the southeast corner of 12th Ave. and W. 30th St. After the suspect used the phone, he refused to give it back. The phone is valued at $100.

A 31-year-old woman locked her bike on Sat., Oct. 21 at 4:15 p.m., on the corner of W. 15th St. and 10th Ave. at Chelsea Market. She walked away from the bike to go food shopping for 45 minutes. When she came back, she realized the bike was gone. The bike is valued at $750.
