Knife to meet you

Car crazy

A 23-year-old man was arrested for pilfering cars parked along E 23rd Street on April 16, according to police.

The victim told police that he was between Avenues R and X shortly after 2 am when he saw the crook pulling on the handles of car doors and entering the vehicles he was able to gain access to. The victim said he saw the suspect enter his 2011 Nissan Rogue. He confronted the suspect, a struggle ensued, and the suspect dropped two phone chargers from his pocket.
