Car crash

Police nabbed a man who they say attempted to break into a car parked on Surf Avenue on Aug. 23.

An eyewitness informed police that he saw the wrench-toting suspect trying to pry open the door of a sedan opposite Jones Walk at 8:37 pm. After failing to get into the vehicle, the eyewitness said the alleged burglar trying to smash the window with his elbow.

The eyewitness called the authorities, and police say they found a wrench in the suspect’s backpack.

Blunt force

Authorities arrested a man who they say went on a rampage through a woman’s 86th Street apartment while carrying marijuana wrapped in cigar paper on Aug. 20.

The apartment tenant said the suspect was in her home near the corner of W. Ninth Street at 11:36 pm when he hurled a glass bottle at her, striking her on the arm. The woman said the accused then flung another bottle at her television set, breaking it, then reached up and knocked pieces off her chandelier. The tenant phoned the police, who cuffed and searched the man — and discovered a blunt in his pocket.
