Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Terminal and Atlantic Center Malls made headlines in this week's "Police Blotter":

It’s almost the holiday shopping season, but thieves and weirdos were already working Bruce Ratner’s Atlantic Terminal and Atlantic Center malls on Nov. 10.

On that single day, there were three incidents. Here’s a roundup:

• A police officer engaged a sword-carrying shopper in armed combat inside an Atlantic Terminal store before arresting him.
• A tiny troublemaker swiped a woman’s wallet while she shopped in an Atlantic Terminal store on Nov. 10.
• A thief brazenly made repeated raids on a clothier inside Atlantic Center Mall.

Click here to read the details of these three remarkable crimes that will surely boost the overall official crime stats of Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards footprint, which is located across Atlantic Avenue from these malls.
