Perks peril

A crazy brawl at the rowdy Smith Street nightclub Perks resulted in two arrests and bite marks on cops on March 25.

It all began when a loco lady started brawling inside the club at Warren Street at around 9:47 pm. As cops tried to slap the cuffs on her and stop the fight, her boyfriend seized the opportunity to swipe a wallet that had fallen to the ground during the scuffle.

To add to his problems, he also attempted to prevent cops from arresting his bloodthirsty ladyfriend. Eventually, he was sporting metal bracelets — but his girlfriend would not go so easy.

After striking another club-goer in the face, she managed to clock an officer and bite him on the hand. An hour and a half later, the boozy woman was still foaming at the mouth at the 76th Precinct, and chomped on another cop as he tried to haul her off to the hospital.

Bunch of DS

A young thug stole an 11-year-old’s Nintendo DS on March 26.

The pre-adolescent gamer told cops that he was entering the Carroll Street subway stop at President and Smith Streets at around 3:30 pm when three teens approached him.

One of them said, “Give me your DS!” To which the youngster cleverly replied, “I don’t have DS.”

But the perp would not back down, saying, “Yes you do! I have a gun, you better give it to me before I shoot you!”

But this victim was not convinced. “You don’t have a gun!” he said. “Show me!”

Apparently, the brute was bluffing about the gun, but not about his desire for the portable gaming system. He grabbed the victim’s bookbag as he tried to flee up the stairs of the subway. He then put him in a headlock, snatched the DS, and took off running with his cronies.

Cement swipe

A thief stole a cement mixer used for renovations of the Brooklyn–Queens Expressway sometime between March 21 and March 22.

The driver of the $60,000 Mack dump truck told cops that he had parked it in a fenced-in lot at Hicks Street and Hamilton Avenue at around 1 pm on March 21.

The construction worker — who is definitely in the doghouse with the site superintendent — admitted that he’d left the keys in the truck.

By 7 am the next day, it was gone.

Charged card

Two thugs stole a woman’s purse from her car on Dean Street on March 23, but were later arrested after being caught using her credit cards.

The victim told cops that she had parked her car between Bond and Hoyt streets at around 11:30 am. When she returned about seven hours later, her purse, containing her two credit cards, was missing.

That same day, only 10 minutes later, Officer Anna Carrasco noticed a shady 37-year-old lady in a car on Smith Street between Bergen and Wyckoff streets without a seatbelt. Before Carrasco could approach the car, the woman burst from the car with her hand in her left pocket, which turned out to contain a knife.

Closer inspection revealed that she was in possession of one of the victim’s credit cards, which she had already used.

Five days later, on March 28, Officer Carrasco noticed another sketchy character sneaking out of a fenced area with an open beer at Bond and Second streets at around 5 pm. As it turned out, the 37-year-old had the other credit card belonging to the victim.

Joy ride

Two troublemakers stole a car parked in a lot on Dwight Street on March 16, but were arrested the next day with a bevy of hard drugs.

The victim told cops that she had parked her 2006 Chrysler between Wolcott and King streets at around 10:30 pm. By the next morning at 6:40, her auto had vanished.

But later that day, Officer Keith Dsouza busted a duo that he claimed had an assortment of needles, crack, and the pipes to smoke it with.

Millie from Carroll Gardens says:
My Grandmother has lived in Carroll Gardens for over 30 years. She has lived in the same apartment for over 20 years and the slum lord has really done it this time. The entire bathroom ceiling and cabinet recently fell on her. She has a police report and one from the ambulance. What do we do next? The apartment is just unsafe to live in. ALL of the apartments are this way in the building... HELP!
