94th Precinct



A man was arrested for allegedly beating another man with a giant ashtray on Clay Street on July 8.

The victim told police that he was between Paige Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard at 4:15 pm, arguing with the 20-year-old suspect, when the man suddenly picked up a cigarette receptacle and hit the victim in the head with it several times.

The victim suffered cuts to the head and swelling to the hand and was taken to a hospital for treatment. The suspect was charged with second and third-degree assault, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment.

Two teenagers were arrested for allegedly attacking a man and a woman riding on a bicycle on N. Eighth Street on July 8 — and then stealing their backpack.

One of the two victims told the county district attorney’s office that they were riding between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street at 2:40 am when one teen lunged at them, pulling the pair off the bicycle. He then grabbed their backpack and ran off with another teen who had been acting as lookout.

Both suspects are charged with robbery, strangulation, robbery, assault, criminal obstruction of breathing, criminal possession of stolen property, menacing and harassment.
