Big arrest

Cops nabbed a sick crook suspected of breaking into a Huron Street apartment on June 13 and fondling a 21-year-old woman while she slept.

The deviant climbed into the apartment through an open first-floor window at around 5 am, reached up the dozing victim’s shorts, and exposed his penis.

The victim woke up and shouted at the pervert, who dashed out of the apartment, which is between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard, hopped on a bike, and pedaled away.

By the time police arrived at the scene, the victim noticed that the crook had also stolen $20.

Ear-y crime!

A June 13 argument turned two revelers into pugilists — and left one of them missing an ear.

The bizarre brawl started at the Continental Restaurant on Newell Street at around 2:30 am, when two patrons got into a “verbal argument over home cities in Poland,” police reports indicate.

But this hometown rivalry wasn’t just a war of words.

One of the men punched the other in the face with a closed fist, then — in an apparent homage to boxer Mike Tyson — “bit a piece of [the victim’s] left ear off, disfiguring [him] and causing him pain,” according to cops.

The masticator fled from the bar, which is between Driggs and Nassau avenues, and the 22-year-old victim was treated at Bellevue Hospital, where he received 15 stitches.

But cops canvassed the neighborhood and locked up an individual who was found to be in possession of the victim’s cash.


Two armed crooks held up a 60-year-old after he left a Morgan Avenue check-cashing business on June 12.

The robbers confronted the victim near the corner of Beadel Street and Vandervoort Avenue at around 12:30 pm.

“Do you have anything on you?” one of the thugs demanded, as he pulled out a handgun. “Give me everything.”

The victim forked over his cash and his wallet and the thieves fled.

Bottle rocket

Police cuffed a 13-year-old suspected of attempting to rob a Greenpoint resident with a broken bottle on June 8.

The pint-sized perp allegedly approached his 19-year-old victim from behind near the corner of Debevoise and Skillman avenues at around 4:50 pm, wielding a broken bottle.

The would-be mugger threatened to cut the victim if he didn’t fork over his iPod and — but the victim managed to escape.

Cops locked up the teenaged suspect later that day.
