Two exes beat up their former lovers last week in separate, but equally horrifying, incidents.

In the first case, a 41-year-old man was arrested on Feb. 13 for allegedly attacking a 38-year-old woman in her own apartment because she wouldn’t sleep with him, said cops.

The victim said that the thug came to her South Eighth Street apartment, between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue, at around 2:30 am and started arguing with her because she refused to let him have his way.

He proceeded to choke her and tried to stab her with a corkscrew, ultimately knocking her to the ground and piercing her left foot with the bottle opener. He was charged with felony assault.

In a similar incident on Ten Eyck Walk, a guy allegedly pushed his way into a 37-year-old woman’s apartment at 6 am on Feb. 13, shoved her into the bedroom and onto the bed and tried to suffocate her.

Her children were in the next room at the time.

During the struggle in the apartment, which is between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue, he also pulled out two knives and tried to cut her face.

The children heard the struggle and called the cops, causing the suspect to flee, but not before cutting his victim on the face with a box-cutter.

The victim said the assailant was a 27-year-old Humboldt Street resident.
