BRONX NEWS: NYC thief cuffed at fried chicken joint he robbed over the summer


The chicken was so good he had to go back for more.


A Bronx man was busted after he showed back up at a fried chicken joint he robbed over the summer, police said Saturday.


Workers at Texas Chicken and Burger on Brook Ave. in Mott Haven recognized Christopher Schlosser immediately when he walked in on Thursday.


“He thought we didn’t know him. I told my manager, ‘This guy punched me and took my chicken and my biscuits. I know him. Call the police,’” employee Abdul Mustawu, 29, told the Daily News.

Man busted for robbing victim beaten in Brooklyn eatery attack


Feathers flew on July 27, when the 21-year-old stormed into the eatery, jumped over the counter and jammed piece after piece of chicken into a bag, cops said.


He topped off his massive meal with a tray of biscuits he snatched before he ran out.


Schlosser is charged with robbery.


Meanwhile, police are looking for yet another poultry pilfering pair who hit the same spot to swipe finger-licking fried meat.

Bystanders should report crime, but don’t be a hero


The Bonnie and Clyde duo got into a fight with a cashier around 5:20 p.m. Wednesday when they didn’t have enough money for their meal, according to police.


The woman hurtled over the counter, punched a 22-year-old worker several times and stole a snack box while her partner-in-crime flung a tray at the cashier, slashing his wrist, cops said.


On their way out, the gruesome twosome shoved another employee and spit in his face.


The chicken caper was captured on surveillance video, which police released Saturday.


The woman was wearing a red Nike hoodie, blue jeans and white sneakers. The man is wearing a black du-rag, black coat, red pants and black sneakers.


Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS.

BRONX NEWS: CARIBBEAT: Lehman ‘Mom’ lifts students


Lehman College Prof. Alice Michelle Augustine is truly speaking from experience. After an impressive educational stint, which included a pair of internationally respected study awards, the Lehman alumna is back in the Bronx encouraging students to broaden goals through scholarships, fellowships and other honors.


In September, Augustine, who was born in Dominica, became director of the Office of Prestigious Awards at  Lehman College, part of the City University of New York system — and she’s already getting positive results.


Two years ago, a single student won a Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship Award to study abroad, but this year, 30 Lehman students won the honor. Augustine, who counseled more than 300 students last year, also coordinated Prestigious Awards Day at Lehman with foundations and institutions sharing their educational opportunities with students


“I want my students to understand that it is possible for them. I try to tell them there is nothing very special about me,” said Augustine, who was selected for a Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans fellowship in 2006 to help fund her law school costs.


For Augustine, the Prestigious Awards office is much more than just educational. Called “Mom” by many Lehman students and known for her tasty homemade cupcakes, she has developed a strong bond of trust and respect with students while greatly aiding their overall personal growth.


“When I speak to my students, there’s a level of empathy, because I’ve walked this road. I was a new immigrant,” said Augustine. “I didn’t think college was for me. I offer a shoulder to cry on, and there’s always a meal in my office. There is family and community here.”


Augustine’s commitment to community is not new. “First, I was at the convent because my life is really about service,” she said about her early community service experience in Dominica when she completed preliminary study at the institution and attended college in Caribbean.


After arriving from Dominica, she got a bachelor’s degree from the college in 2006. Funded by a fellowship and a scholarship, she later attended Loyola University School of Law in New Orleans and, with other school students, founded the nonprofit Konbit Pou Edikasyon educational and social organization in Haiti.


After law school, she won a Fulbright Scholarship to travel to Turkey and research human trafficking.


She worked as a Family Court liaison and was an adjunct professor at Lehman before starting the Prestigious Awards office.


“It’s really about mentoring them and helping them see opporunities — just puttting them in on my shoulders so they can see further that I did,” she said adding fellowship and awards make students more competitive in the job market after graduation.


For information on the Office of Prestigious Awards at Lehman, which is at 250 Bedford Park Blvd. in the Bronx, call (718) 960-8481 or visit www.lehman.edu.


RECALLING GOLDEN KRUST CEO


Memories of Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill President and CEO Lowell Hawthorne’s support for local businesses and his penchant for education are coming to light after his death.


“We were colleagues and he always respected me and supported Everybody’s magazine and our cultural  productions,” recalled Herman Hall, publisher of the Caribbean-American publication.


Patrick Maitland, founder, publisher and editor-in-chief of the popular Street Hype Newspaper, looked back at Hawthorne’s support for that publication.


“Mr. Hawthorne from time-to-time would send me congratulatory notes on specific feature or stories we carried in Street Hype,” said Matiland. “He was a loving and caring man to many and will be sadly missed for his philanthropy and entrepreneurial skills,” he said.


Lehman College President Jose Luis Cruz said Hawthorne was an inspiring speaker when the Golden Krust boss gave the commencement address last year, when he graduated from Lehman with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.


“Although he was already a prosperous entrepreneur and businessman, Mr. Hawthorne returned to college to achieve his dream of earning a Bachelor’s degree,”said Cruz, adding that Hawhorne delivered “a rousing and memorable speech, inspiring his fellow graduates to work hard and turn their dreams into reality.”


“He was the quintessential Lehman student-determined and dedicated to family and community,” he said, extending condolences to Mr. Hawthorne’s wife, Lorna, his sons Omar, Haywood, and Daren, and to his daughter, Monique.


Wake for Hawthorne will be held Dec. 18 at the Grace Baptist Church, 52 S. Sixth Ave. in Mount Vernon, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Funeral services are scheduled for Dec. 19 in Brooklyn at the Christian Cultural Center, 12020 Flatlands Ave., with a view at 8 a.m. and services beginning at 9 a.m.


According to police, Hawthorne, 57, killed himself inside his Bronx factory on Dec. 2. Records show the business owner did have outstanding city and state tax bills. And a former employee filed a lawsuit claiming he and other workers did not recieve overtime payments they deserved. Police say Hawthorne left a note, but they did not reveal the contents.


FREE  TROPICALFETE COMMUNITY CONCERT


It’s gift-giving time for the Tropicalfete Inc. community organization, which is presenting the free “Tropicalfete Countdown Community Concert next Sunday in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Music School Playhouse Theater, 126 St. Felix St., at 6 p.m.


The lineup for the concert includes Tropicalfete’s Steel Pan Ensemble, Choir and stilts performers, along with live music ranging from pop, soul and classical to reggae, chutney and zouk. For information, send email to info@tropicalfete.com, call (646) 504-3383 or visit, www.tropicalfete.com online.


HIV PROGRESS IN CARIBBEAN


One of the 2017 announced successes in the war againt the AIDS virus comes from the Caribbean — six Caribbean territories and states eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV and syphilis.


According to the World Health Organization, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Montserrat, and St. Kitts and Nevis have achieved this “dual elimination” goal.


“UNAIDS congratulates the six states and territories on this important achievement,” said Michel Sidibé, executive director of the United Nation’s UNAIDS organization. “All countries should follow their example and ensure that every child has an HIV-free start to his or her life.”


“This elimination is the result of our strong political commitment to public health and of making the health of mothers, children and families a regional priority,” said St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Timothy Harris.


The region was also recognized for historic gains in 2015 when Cuba became the first country in the world to receive validation from WHO for having achieved elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and syphilis.

BRONX NEWS: Blaze engulfs Bronx building, leaves nine injured


Nine people were injured Saturday when a fire ripped through a Bronx building, authorities said.


The blaze sparked inside a second-floor apartment on University Ave. at Eames Place in Fordham Manor at 5:07 p.m., the FDNY said.


Flames raged out of the flat’s windows as neighbors scrambled down the fire escape to safety.


Tyrone Lee, 32, said he saw a pregnant woman with a child running out of the apartment where the fire started.


“She was hysterical. They were in the lobby crying and screaming,” he said, adding that they didn’t appear to be hurt.


Lee and several other neighbors tried to douse the flames but the smoke was too heavy.


“We kicked the door open. We had a fire extinguisher. But black smoke poured out.”


Firefighters extinguished the blaze by 5:50 p.m., authorities said.


Neighbors told the Daily News that an infant boy turned blue from smoke inhalation was rushed to the hospital.


Another person was also taken to the hospital for further treatment, authorities said.


Five other people and two firefighters were treated at the scene for non-life threatening injuries, the FDNY said.


The cause of the fire is under investigation.
