Break-in crew

Police arrested six people who they say broke into a Brigham Street home on Oct. 28.

They say the suspects, four men and two women between 18 and 32, forced open the rear door of the home near Emmons Avenue sometime after 2 am — but were caught by the homeowner, who called police.

Blade boob arrested

Cops arrested a 29-year-old man for threatening another man with a knife on Ocean Avenue on Oct. 28 — right in front of a passing police officer.

Police said that the patrolman witnessed the 29-year-old suspect flash his weapon and threaten his victim near Avenue Y at 1:59 am.

The thug ran off as the cop approached, prompting a brief chase.

Two knives were recovered from the suspect after he was in custody, cops said.

Senior attacked

A thug beat up a 70-year-old man following an Oct. 28 fender bender on E. Seventh Street, said cops.

The senior and his assailant were arguing over who was responsible for the 2 pm crash near Avenue S when the 48-year-old suspect, who was later arrested, punched the senior in the face, cutting his left ear.


Police arrested two men who they say were found carrying a supply of Oxycodone pills without a valid prescription on Ford Street on Oct. 28.

The suspects, ages 29 and 33, were seen holding the pills on a public sidewalk at 2:40 pm.

Rubber raid

A thief swiped two tires from a car parked on Gravesend Neck Road on Oct. 27.

The owner of the 2011 Honda left her vehicle parked near E. 22nd Street at 7 pm. When she returned to it at 8 the next morning, the tires were gone.

TJ Maxx theft

Two people were arrested on Oct. 28 after they were seen switching price tags on clothes at the TJ Maxx on E. 15th Street, said cops.

Workers at the store near Kings Highway said the suspects took tags from lower priced items and put them on higher priced ones at 1:30 pm — then tried to walk out of the store without paying for them anyway.

Door kicker

A thief forced his way into an E. 16th Street home on Oct. 28, taking $5,000 in cash and some jewelry.

The victim left his home between Shore Parkway and Emmons Avenue at 3:30 pm. When he returned at 9 pm that night, he found his front door damaged and apartment ransacked.

Parking problems

A valet for a Coney Island Avenue restaurant wrecked a car he was supposed to park on Oct. 29 — then ran off before police could arrive and take a report.

The owner of the 2005 BMW left the vehicle in the valet’s care at 3 am. The valet, who was not identified, was parking the vehicle when he hit another car parked between Avenues Y and Z. The valet ran off before witnesses called 911.

Car break-in

A thief broke into a car parked on E. 24th Street on Oct. 22, swiping a handicap parking permit.

The owner of the 2001 Honda left her car parked — unlocked — between Avenues W and X at 3 pm. When she returned at 8 the next morning, the permit was missing.
