69th Precinct



Police arrested a woman who they say screwed shut the front door of her tenant’s E. 80th Street apartment on Dec. 18, and then bit the victim’s hand after he attempted to call 911.

The victim told police that he attempted to enter his apartment between Glenwood Road and Flatlands Avenue at 6:30 pm when he found that his front door was nailed shut.

When he asked his landlord to open the door, the woman allegedly brandished a knife in an attempt to ward off her bewildered tenant.

After the victim took out his cellphone in an attempt to call 911, the suspect bit his hand and fled with the cellphone, cops said.

Hot smokes

A man with a real tobacco craving was arrested for stealing 11 cartons of cigarettes from a Flatlands Avenue store on Dec. 22, according to cops.

The store owner told police that he was working in the establishment between E. 102nd and E. 103rd streets at 7:58 am when a thief stuffed $1,275 worth of smokes into a black bag and attempted to flee.

The store owner grabbed the suspect before he could abscond with his ill-begotten tobacco, according to police. A scuffle ensued and as the two men struggled, a .357 caliber pistol allegedly fell from the suspect’s jacket, investigators say.
