Bottled violence

Cops cuffed a man who they say participated in a brutal beating on Brighton Fifth Street back on Aug. 24.

The victim told police he was near Oceanview Avenue at 4 am when the man in custody — along with two accomplices — punched him and bashed him over the head with a beer bottle.


Authorities nabbed a man who they say stole a woman’s purse from behind the counter of Neptune Avenue store on Oct. 3.

The victim reported that she left her bag at the cash register at the shop between W. 34th and W. 35th streets at 4:21 pm. Police said the store’s security cameras show the accused reaching over the counter and taking the bag — with the victim’s iPhone and wallet inside.
