Two people turned from innocent studiers to victims of laptop theft between 2:00 and 2:30 this afternoon, warns Public Safety. The thief, using a pair of crutches, first struck the 4th floor of SIPA, and then Avery. A tipster informs us that the man was deliberately “acting all sick/about to faint and sat on the ground for a while. And was just creepy in general.”
This was the same man who stole a wallet from Kent a few weeks ago, but he wasn’t using crutches at the time. We see right through you and your slippery ways, thieving fiend. In the meantime, call Public Safety (212-854-5555) if you see the guy, and don’t trust fake-crippled men. He shouldn’t be too hard to catch if he wants to keep his most likely stolen props.
