A Piggy Bank Fingerprint

       East Hampton Town police released a report this week of the Friday arrest of a woman they said broke into the locked bedroom of her boyfriend’s apartment-mate, stealing an iPod and jewelry and emptying a piggy bank of about $30 in change.

       Police said that Akina S. Mabry was responsible in a Sept. 18 incident in which John Cano of Three Mile Harbor-Hog Creek Road in Springs reported the theft. Mr. Cano told officers that when he got home from work that evening he noticed that his door was ajar and damaged in several places. Looking closely, he found a small piece of metal in the frame that turned out to perfectly match a broken butcher’s knife he spotted in the apartment kitchen.

       In the Sept. 18 police report, Mr. Cano said that the iPod was worth $250. He valued a gold chain and two rings that were also missing at the same figure.

       Detectives took the knife and piggy bank and matched a fingerprint on the bank to Ms. Mabry, who they said had been seen in the apartment on the day of the theft. She was arrested and charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor criminal mischief after giving a statement to police on Friday.

       East Hampton Town Justice Catherine A. Cahill released her on $1,000 bail after she entered a not-guilty plea.

       A 16-year-old youth who allegedly beat up another teen on Friday was charged with misdemeanor assault. Town police said the incident took place on Huntting Avenue at about 3:20 p.m. The female victim, also 16, was left dizzy and nauseous and suffered from memory loss from being repeatedly punched in the head and dragged along the ground by her hair, according to the report.

       After speaking with police at her home she was taken to Southampton Hospital to be examined.

       Her alleged attacker turned himself in on Monday, police said, and was freed by Justice Cahill on $350 bail. His name has not been released.

       East Hampton Village police arrested William J. Walker, 32, of Bridgehampton on Saturday after, they said, he punched a fellow patron at the Palm restaurant on Main Street, causing a two-inch cut on his face. Mr. Walker was released without bail with a Dec. 4 court date.

       Mr. Walker has had at least three other recent arrests, including one in August in which he was alleged to have punched two people in Sag Harbor.
