Fighting it out

Police arrested a 29-year-old man who they say knocked another man to the ground and assaulted him on Coney Island Avenue on June 18.

The victim told police he was between Avenue Z and E. 11th Street at 3 am when he and the suspect had an argument. The suspect kicked him in the stomach, and when he fell to the ground, the suspect kicked him again in the abdomen, police said.

The defendant is being charged with assault, attempted assault, menacing, and harassment.


A 24-year-old man was arrested by police for participating in the assault of a man on W. 29th Street on May 20.

The victim told police he was between Surf Avenue and the Boardwalk at 2 am that the defendant and three other people, who have yet to be arrested, punched and kicked him in the head, face, and body over and over. The victim also said that one of the unapprehended men hit him with a chair and then pinned him against a wall with it while the defendant and the other men punched him in the face repeatedly.

The defendant is being charged with gang assault, assault, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault, and harassment.

A near evasion

Police arrested a 42-year-old man for urinating on a police department-affiliated building on W. Sixth Street and, when confronted, attempting to run away on June 16.

According to police, an officer saw the defendant urinate on the building near the intersection of W. Sixth Avenue and Shell Road at 3:10 pm. When the officer approached the man, he pushed the officer and tried to get away.

Police said when more officers tried to arrest him, he resisted by kicking his legs and flailing his arms, actually cutting the arm of the arresting officer.

The defendant is being charged with assault, official misconduct, obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest, harassment, and littering.
