Bullets flying near the McDonald’s on Rockaway Parkway and Conklin Avenue reached a 21-year-old woman eating inside, officials said.

Police said that the victim suffered a graze wound to her wrist following the fracas at 4 a.m. on September 20. Investigators said that the woman was inside the all-night eatery when shots were fired between two combatting group of males.

The woman, who was listed as an innocent bystander, was the only one injured.

Four shots were fired during the late-night blow-up, officials said. No injuries or arrests were reported.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward. Calls can be made to the 69th Precinct at (718) 257-6315. All calls will be kept confidential.

A nine-year-old boy from the Bayview Houses was rushed to the hospital last week when a tragic accident led to serious injuries.

Officials said that they were called to the apartment at 1:30 p.m. on September 19. The child, police learned, had somehow injured his neck and throat, officials said.

The child was in serious condition at a pediatric intensive care unit as this paper went to press.

A man needed his head stapled shut after a bloody skirmish in front of an East 98th Street address last week.

The victim said that he was at the address just before 7 p.m. on September 15 when he got into an argument allegedly with 17-year-old Wilfred Hillman.

Hillman allegedly struck the victim in the face with a glass bottle, leaving him with a deep cut to the side of the face that needed four stitches to close.

Cops took Hillman into custody a short time later, charging him with assault in the second degree, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and harassment, officials said.

An alleged Blackberry thief was apprehended almost a month and a half after a mugging, officials said this week.

Officials said that Michael Cook, 18, was taken into custody on September 20 for an incident on August 7 at Flatlands Avenue and East 81st Street.

In that incident, Cook and a second man allegedly cornered the victim and swiped a Blackberry and wallet from his hands.

Cook was identified as the alleged thief during the ensuing investigation, officials said. He was charged with robbery in the second degree, grand larceny, petit larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, menacing and harassment, officials said.

A 27-year-old with a taste for designer suits was arrested for allegedly trying to swipe a rack of them from the Macy’s in the Kings Plaza Mall last week.

Security guards at the department store on Flatbush Avenue and Avenue U alleged that suspect Steven Williams took “several” designer suits and placed them in a bag as he shopped at 4:42 p.m. on September 16.

When a guard spotted him, Williams dropped the bag and ran off empty handed, but returned three hours later, claiming that he was going to “end the guard’s life” and “punch him in the face,” police alleged.

Before he could make good on his alleged threats, cops from the 63rd Precinct were called to the mall to grab Williams, who was charged with grand larceny, petit larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and harassment, officials said.

A 17-year-old was arrested for allegedly swiping an X-Box 360 from a home he burglarized, but then leaving behind his fingerprints.

Prosecutors charge that Duquan Scott broke into the Glenwood Road apartment near East 59th Street sometime on August 19, taking the X-Box, some games, a cell phone, iPod and a backpack to carry it all in.

During the investigation that followed, crime scene technicians lifted a fingerprint from a DVD case in the apartment that brought the 63rd back to Scott, who had been arrested previously in an unrelated incident.

Cops charged Scott with burglary in the second degree, criminal trespass and petit larceny.

Two thieves raided a Remsen Avenue address after following the homeowner to her door.

Police said that the victim had just gotten out of work and was on her way home at 1:30 p.m. on September 13 when she noticed that the two suspects, described as black males in their 20s, were following her.

When she walked into her house between Glenwood and Farragut roads, the two suspects followed her in and pulled a gun on her.

They held her at bay as they tossed the home, fleeing with $700.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward.

Calls can be made to the 69th Precinct Detective Squad at (718) 257-6315. All calls will be kept confidential.
