60th Precinct

Coney Island-Brighton Beach-Seagate

Generation gap

Police arrested a 60-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman who they say attacked each other on Surf Avenue on Oct. 29.

Witnesses said the two, described as “friends,” were arguing near Beach 50th Street in Sea Gate, when the senior attacked the young woman with a knife, cutting her finger.

But payback can be painful: the woman also pulled a knife and slashed at the older man, leaving her attacker with a finger cut as well.

Never backing down

Cops say a 19-year-old goon attacked a cop on an R train as it entered the Stillwell Avenue station on Oct. 29 — then tried to fight off the cop when he tried to arrest him.

The cop told prosecutors that he was walking through a train car at 2:30 am when the suspect punched him in the back of the head, leaving him with a small injury.

The cop recovered quickly and tried to arrest the teen, but the suspect began flailing his arms, refusing to be handcuffed, officials said.

Helping hooligan

Cops arrested a 43-year-old man who allegedly agreed to hold a young woman’s backpack on Stillwell Avenue on Oct. 22 — then walked off with her possessions.

The victim was standing with the would-be thief near Neptune Avenue at 5 pm when she asked him to hold her knapsack, which contained her cellphone, social security card and ID. She told the man that she would be back in a few moments to retrieve her stuff, but when she returned, the 43-year-old was gone.

Cops from the 60th Precinct caught up with him on Oct. 29, charging him with petit larceny.

Two missing

Cops are looking for two people who went missing in Coney Island last week.

Joseph Rodriguez, 16, was last seen leaving his home on Stillwell Avenue near Neptune Avenue at 7:45 am on Oct. 28. He was last seen wearing a black coat, blue jeans and a gray sweater.

A day earlier, 46-year-old Michael Pruzansky left his home on Surf Avenue near W. 23rd Street at 9 am and disappeared. Pruzansky is 6-feet-tall, has a heavy build, and has brown hair and a beard. He was last seen wearing a black coat, black jeans and black shoes, officials were told.

Anyone with information regarding either missing person is urged to call the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
