An apparently cash-strapped jerk really, really wanted a dollar on March 24, so he did what anyone would do — he broke into a Hewes Street apartment at 4 am and asked for one.
A startled woman told police that she woke up in her home, which is between Harrison Avenue and Broadway, to find a tall man standing over her bed.
“Can I have a dollar?” he asked.
When she said no, he nodded and left. Later, the woman found that her back door had been smashed in, but nothing was taken.
A blowhard grocery store customer was arrested after tooting an air horn at an employee and slashing her with a knife on March 27.

Naturally, the cashier got annoyed and told the 63-year-old man to leave, but he hit her with a stick instead. An argument ensued, and the man eventually pulled out a knife and slashed the girl in the abdomen.
She still managed to call cops, who collared the jerk.
