Bathroom jailhouse

Police arrested a 28-year-old man for imprisoning a woman in his Farragut Road bathroom on Jan. 19.

The victim told police that the suspect dragged her by the arm into the bathroom of his apartment between Bedford Avenue and E. 26th Street at 6:45 am, where he began unbuttoning her pants and uttering threats.

“I have money for you, and if you say anything to the police, just so you know, I know people in Brooklyn who can take care of you,” the suspect allegedly snarled.

When police searched the suspect’s apartment, they found six bags of marijuana, cops said.

Gun battle

Cops arrested two men, ages 18 and 21, who they say pulled a gun on a police officer inside of a Nostrand Avenue store on Jan. 18.

The arresting officer said he was inside the store between Glenwood Road and Flatbush Avenue at 7:10 pm, where he noticed the suspect engaged in an argument with another man.

When the officer announced that he was with the NYPD, the suspect reached for a pistol in his waistband and a struggle ensued, in which the suspect and an accomplice battled with the officer and his partner for control of the firearm, police reported. The officers seized the gun and arrested the suspects, according to police.
