Back stabber

An 18-year-old man was arrested for stabbing a restaurant owner outside of his Coney Island Avenue eatery on Aug. 31.

The victim told police he was rolling down the front gate of his store between Crawford Avenue and Avenue X at 1:30 am when the suspect shoved a knife into the left side of the victim’s upper back. The victim was rushed to Coney Island Avenue, but was later able to identify the suspect, who police say they found with a knife in his pocket.


Cops are hunting a gang of thugs who allegedly beat a man on E. 29th Street with a golf club on Aug. 31.

The victim told police that he was sitting in a car near Shore Parkway at 1:20 am when the suspects approached him and broke his window with the golf club, before bashing him in the head with it. The last he saw of the perps, they were burning rubber in a dark Audi, and a police search didn’t turn anything up.

Disabled and dangerous

Cops arrested at man who they say used a pair of crutches to beat a man on E. 15th Street on Aug. 31.

The victim told police he was arguing with the suspect near Avenue U when the man snapped, and bashed the victim with the crutches.

Dumb broke

A thief ransacked a man’s Avenue Z home on Aug. 31 — and the victim claims the crook took more than $100,000 worth of jewelry.

The victim told police that he left his house between E. 27th and E. 28th streets at 6 pm, and returned at 10:30 pm to discover some burglar had smashed his way into the house through a rear window, before hitting pay day.

The victim said the crook made off with an iPhone 5, $20,000 worth of Rolex and Michelle watches, and $115,000 worth of assorted jewelry.

Apple picking

Some goon stole a woman’s iPhone on E. 15th Street on Aug. 31.

The victim told police that she was between Avenues U and V at 11:35 pm when a young man waltzed up and asked for the time. But after the poor girl took out her phone to check the time, the crook lunged for it and, after a struggle, was able to wrench it from his victim’s grasp.

Jeep jacked

A thief drove off with a woman’s 2011 Grand Cherokee she left on Haring Street on Aug. 31.

The victim told police she parked her Jeep between Avenues Y and Z at 9 pm, and returned an hour later to find an empty spot. There was no sign of forced entry at the scene, but the victim did spot her vehicle’s manual on the street nearby.

Shed head

A crook broke into a woman’s Avenue T shed on Aug. 31, and took her bicycle.

The victim told police that she last checked her shed between E. 13th and E. 14th streets at 8:30 pm, and saw that her bike was right where it was supposed to be. About eight hours later, however, she returned to find the shed doors forced open and her $200 bike stolen.


A crook robbed a man of his ritzy racing bike on West Street on Sept. 2.

The victim told police that he was between Avenue T and Sloan Place at 2:30 pm, in the midst of closing his garage door, when another fellow suddenly ran up and shoved him, then fled with the $2,000 Cannaondale Cadd 8 racing bicycle.
