60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Board to death

Authorities apprehended a Brighton Beacher who they say assaulted another man with a piece of wood on Brighton Eighth Street on Sept. 7.

The victim told police that he and the accused were standing between Ocean View and Neptune avenues at 11:52 pm when the alleged attacker picked up a chunk of timber and swung it at him. The victim said he threw up his hand to block the blow, causing a cut on his palm.

Bad license

A man was arrested for allegedly shoplifting from a W. Eighth Street store on Sept. 7 — and giving authorities stolen identification when stopped.

The store owner said that the suspect entered her shop between Surf and Neptune avenues at 8:37 pm, and tried to walk out with two pairs of earphones. Cops caught the man shortly afterward, and asked him for his driver’s license. They say the accused showed them a card that clearly belonged to another man — and, on searching him, found he was carrying a wallet full of credit cards stolen from the same person.

Mortar fire

Cops busted a man who they say attacked a Coney Islander with metal pegs and a brick on Neptune Avenue on Sept. 4.

The victim said he was between W. 29th and W. 30th streets at 3 am when the man in custody started hurling insults at him — and soon followed up his words with chunks of metal. The victim said the accused attacker then grabbed a brick and smashed him in the back of the head.
