Knife attack

Police arrested a man who they say attacked a woman with a knife in her Moore Street apartment on Dec. 26, but luckily didn’t hit his mark.

The woman told police that she was in her apartment between Manhattan and Graham avenues at 6:25 pm when the suspect swung the knife at her several times while yelling at her.

Police charged the man with attempted assault, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, and resisting arrest.

Burglar on the roof

Police arrested an alleged thief who they say stole a couple of outfits from a Broadway store on Dec. 29.

The custodian of the building between Graham Avenue and Thornton Street told police that at 1 pm he went onto the roof because he saw the latch undone and found the would-be thief with a backpack full of sneakers, cargo pants, shirts, and a hat.

Police charged the suspect with burglary, criminal mischief, petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
