Batter up

A 17-year-old man was arrested for helping to beat another man on Coney Island Avenue on July 28, police say.

The victim was between Brighton Eighth Court and Neptune Avenue at 5:20 am when the man and several others allegedly kicked and hit his face, arms, and legs, and struck him with a baseball bat, causing bruising and swelling.

Bumpy ride

Police arrested a 50-year-old for allegedly stealing a woman’s belongings on Coney Boardwalk on July 24.

The woman told cops she put her pocketbook — which contained a cellphone, camera, and wallet — along with a bag with a diaper inside, into a bin before boarding an amusement ride at 9:42 pm.

When the ride ended and she went to retrieve her belongings, she found that they were missing. They were later found with the alleged thief by a security guard.

Cash be gone

A 47-year-old man was arrested for mugging a woman on Mermaid Avenue on July 27, police say.

The woman was at W. 20th Street at 6:30 pm when the man allegedly pushed her to the ground, causing her to scratch her leg, and demanded that she hand over her cash, which she did.
