In-law killing

A 37-year-old man was facing murder charges on May 19 after he stabbed his 22-year-old brother-in-law to death inside his family’s Bedford Avenue apartment.

The two men were arguing at 6 pm when suspect Cecilio Lopez pulled a knife and lunged, allegedly stabbing victim Jose Aceituno in the torso and arm.

Paramedics rushed Aceituno to Kings County Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

Cops charged Lopez with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Bus bruisers

Two teens were arrested on May 18 after they attacked a 58-year-old man on a bus rolling past the corner of Flatbush and Church avenues.

Witnesses told police that the two teens jumped the older man on the bus at 1:20 pm --— knocking him out with a blow to the head.

The duo patted the man down, then tried to drag the unconscious victim off the bus, but another straphanger chased them away.

The thieves were arrested a short time later, charged with robbery and assault.

Parkway raid

Two men have been arrested in connection with a May 6 burglary on Rockaway Parkway.

Police said the men crept into the home, which is between Rutland Road and East New York Avenue, at 12:45 pm, jumping a man inside.

The duo punched and throttled the victim, forcing him to hand over his money, officials said.

The thieves left with the cash, but not before they left their victim with injuries that required medical attention.

Weaving on Church

A 31-year-old man was arrested on drunk driving charges May 21 after he was caught weaving past the corner of Church and Flatbush avenues.

Cops pulled the driver over after he was caught making an illegal U-turn in a 2000 Lexus, officials said.

Snack time

Two teens were arrested this week when they were linked to two May 2 munchy raids inside the same Flatbush Avenue bodega.

Workers at the grocery, which is located between Church and Snyder avenues, said the teens entered their store at 10:30 am, demanding to know: “Where’s the candy at?”

After they were showed the candy, the thieves shoved a worker aside, scooped some of the chocolate up, and ran off with it.

The thieves returned at 2:15 pm —- this time demanding Pringles — before robbing the store of candy and cash.

The two thieves were arrested after a brief investigation, and charged with robbery and assault.

Tag team

Two punks worked together to rob a 46-year-old man on Avenue I on May 7.

The victim was approaching E. 39th Street at 12:30 pm when the suspects grabbed him.

One of the thugs put the victim in a choke hold while the other flashed a knife and rifled through the man’s pockets, police were told.
