There were at least two hit-and-runs in the neighborhood last week, cops said.

In the first incident, a driver smashed into a parked car on Bergen Street, and then fled, without even a note!

The unfortunate owner of the damaged 2004 GM Cherokee had parked it between Carlton Avenue and Sixth Avenue at 7:40 pm on March 3. When the 38-year-old Bergen Street resident returned the next morning at 7:30 am, she found the front end of her gray jeep smashed in.

In the second incident, at 1 am on March 9, a driver rear-ended a man’s 1999 Lincoln Town Car as he was waiting in an Atlantic Avenue left-turn lane to cross onto Classon Avenue. The culprit simply continued eastbound on Atlantic Avenue. The victim was quick-witted enough to record the culprit’s license plate.

Bergen punch

A hooligan punched a Bergen Street resident in her head in front of her apartment on March 7, knocking her to the ground and stealing her belongings.

The 23-year-old victim had just left the bodega on the corner of Underhill Avenue and Bergen Street, and was heading home at 8:30 pm, when a strange man approached her, punched her in the back of head, knocking her to the ground, and demanded her wallet and phone.

She complied, and he fled east toward Underhill, taking her $50 red wallet, her credit and debit cards, her California driver’s license, her cellphone, and $10.

Crazy love

The ex-girlfriend of a Sterling Place resident threatened him with violence unless he stopped dating other women, said cops.

The 41-year-old resident of the apartment, between Underhill and Washington avenues, said that on March 3, his 24-year-old ex-girlfriend, who’s a sizeable 6-foot-2, inundated him with threatening phone messages all day.
