Bat man

Someone attacked a 61-year-old man with a baseball bat on the corner of Sherman Street and Ocean Parkway on Nov. 7 — but the batter was later struck out by cops.

The perp approached the man at around 10 am and accused him of stealing his recyclable cans. When the victim denied it, the thug came after him with the Louisville Slugger, hitting him several times.

Police later arrested the attacker, and the victim was taken to Kings County Hospital.

Stroller stolen

A young lady stole a stroller from a building on Prospect Park Southwest on Nov. 8.

A security camera caught the 22-year-old woman entering the building, which is located between Terrace Place and Seeley Street, at around 3:45 am and making off with the $250 baby carriage.
