Marine Park—Mill Basin—Flatlands—Bergen Beach
A 53-year-old man was arrested for viscously attacking another man twice in one day at two separate locations on June 3.
The victim said he was at the corner of Ralph Avenue and Avenue N at 11:30 am when the suspect took a few swings at him and grabbed his testicles.
Then, at 1:30 pm, the belligerent man — this time wielding a metal pipe — jumped the victim again on Mill Lane, police say.
This time the victim was between Ralph Avenue and E. 63rd Street with his 2-year-old and 8-month-old daughters, according to police.
Police arrested a 52-year-old man who they say tried using a credit card that didn’t belong to him at an Avenue U retailer on June 15, according to police.
A cashier at the department store between Flatbush and Mill avenues said the suspect presented an American Express card to make a purchase at 7:30 pm. He asked to see ID, but the suspect walked away.
The credit card’s owner said after the original was stolen, she never got the replacement in the mail.
The man faces possession of stolen property and possession personal identification charges.
A 17-year-old girl was arrested for attempting to buy a handbag at an Avenue U store with a forged $100 bill on June 13.
A security guard at the retailer near Flatbush Avenue said he stopped the suspect at 5:45 pm because he recognized the money as being false.
The suspect said she was previously asked to purchase other items with the phony hundreds from the Victoria’s secret on the corner of Flatbush Avenue as well, and give the change to two unidentified individuals.
The guard said he easily identified the money as fake since the bill featured Abraham Lincoln’s face on it instead of Benjamin Franklin’s, and the serial numbers were all the same.
