Heroic hang-ups

A 30-year-old who tried to defend a woman’s honor ended up getting treated for a series of deep cuts he sustained during a struggle on Flatbush Avenue Extension on July 3.

The victim said that he was in front of a grocery near DeKalb Avenue at 11:20 am when an argument broke out between a man and a woman.

When the man claimed he was going to hit the woman, the victim intervened.

He was successful in saving the woman from a beating, but his victory came at a price: the suspect turned his attentions — and his blade — on him.

Police said that the victim suffered cuts to his face, shoulder and forearm in the ensuing brawl.

The suspect and an accomplice ran off.

Road rage

A 39-year-old motorist was arrested for threatening a traffic agent on Atlantic Avenue near Bond Street on July 8, cops said.

According to police, the suspect flew into a rage and began cursing and yelling at the traffic enforcement agent, who was writing a ticket on the man’s car.

The loudmouth did more than just shout, allegedly threatening to kill the agent. Then he moved over to the city worker’s car and punched it, leaving a dent, officials said.

He also stepped on the agent’s foot, said cops, who arrested the man without further incident.

He was charged with obstruction of governmental administration, menacing and harassment.

Needing aid

A neighborhood Rite Aid employee was attacked during a confrontation with an unruly customer on July 9.

Police said that the victim was working inside the Fulton Street store, which is near Hanover Place, at 7:35 pm when he got into a disagreement with a 32-year-old customer.

The customer then punched the employee during the ensuing skirmish, leaving him with a bruised and swollen eye and an injured elbow.

Cops charged the pugilist with assault, menacing and harassment.

Gunman licked

Cops have got their claws on the finger-lickin’ thief who is believed to have robbed the Fourth Avenue KFC at gunpoint on June 25.

Police said that the 42-year-old suspect, who was arrested this week, was wanted for jamming a gun into the back of the KFC worker outside the St. Marks Place eater at 8:30 am. He then pulled the gun on the worker, who then emptied a cash register, police said.

After getting only $60, the gunman then added a chilling threat to “put a bullet hole” in the worker if he didn’t give up the entire henhouse, according to a spokesperson for Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes.

That’s when the worker opened up the safe and handed over $1,500.

Cops caught up with their suspect this week, charging him with robbery, grand larceny and petit larceny.
