Off-Duty Cop Robbed at Gunpoint in Brooklyn

Thieves stole badge from unarmed woman who identified herself as a cop


A gun-toting trio forced an NYPD cop into the backseat of her car Thursday in Brooklyn and made off with her NYPD shield when she managed to escape, law enforcement sources said.

The 36-year-old cop, who was off duty, told investigators she had just activated the auto start on her car on E. 99th St. near Foster Ave. in Canarsie at 5:15 a.m. when two of the armed culprits grabbed her and forced her into the backseat, officials said.
