Police arrested a 22-year-old woman who they say took a shovel to a man’s garage door and threw a cinderblock through the rear window of his 2011 Mercedes Benz parked on E. 80th Street on Jan. 2.
Police say surveillance footage shows the suspect outside of the victim’s home between Flatlands Avenue and Glenwood Road at 5:50 pm, where she began the shovel-wielding rampage that destroyed the victim’s garage door windows. The suspect admitted to the property damage charges and apologized, cops said.
An 18-year-old boy was arrested for breaking into a vacant E. 83rd Street apartment on Nov. 8.
A neighbor told police that he was inside his apartment between Avenues L and M at 5:50 pm when he heard a commotion coming from the next-door house and went to investigate.
He claims the apartment’s front window was busted, and the suspect and an accomplice were inside, and fled when he saw them.
