Hot cakes, foul mood

The Brooklyn Paper, Police Blotter

Speaking of the site of the Atlantic Center, had Walter O'Malley succeeded in building a baseball stadium on the site, it's possible that "Beaten and Robbed" might refer to a Dodger victory sparked by a couple stolen bases rather than yet another spate of crime in one of Bruce Ratner's malls.

Beaten and robbed

Two teens were apprehended after they mugged a 15-year-old inside the Atlantic Terminal Mall on May 21.

Police said that the suspects pulled a knife on their victim as he perused the Flatbush Avenue mall between Hanson and Atlantic avenues at 3 pm, but were taken into custody before they could exit the front door.

The Bruce Ratner-owned mall is a hotbed for crime, making an appearance pretty much every week in this column.
