Morning attack

Police arrested a man who they say attacked his ex-girlfriend as she was taking her kids to school on Metropolitan Avenue on Oct. 7.

The victim told police that she was near Graham Avenue with her kids at 8:20 am when the man ran up and punched her in the face. He then allegedly grabbed the cellphone out of her right hand and ran down the street. The woman chased her him and he punched her in the face again, cops reported. The 24-year old man was arrested and charged with robbery and assault.

Train beating

A trio of men attacked a passenger on a Brooklyn-bound L train on Oct. 7 — leaving him with cuts and bruises.

The victim told police that he got on the train at Union Square in Manhattan at 11 pm. Just before the Lorimer Street station, the three men suddenly jumped him. They punched him several times and then fled the train when the doors opened.

The victim went to Woodhull Hospital, where doctors gave him 15 stitches. Survellience cameras at two nearby stores caught footage of the men running off, but they have not been arrested, police said.

Kicking and punching

A suspect injured two cops when he started flailing wildly as the officers tried to arrest him on Clay Street on Oct. 9, according to police.

The officers reported that they went to a men’s shelter between McGuinness Boulevard and Paidge Avenue at 11:15 pm to arrest one of the residents on a warrant. When they tried to slap cuffs on the 29-year-old man, he started kicking and swinging, kicking one officer in the leg and hand and punching the other one in the eye, according to reports. He was charged with assault.

Surprise guest

An intruder climbed into a woman’s N. Eighth Street apartment on Oct. 2 — but jumped back out when she screamed

The woman told police she was sitting in her living room at her abode between Roebling and Havemeyer streets at 10:05 pm when a man suddenly entered through her window. She screamed loudly and the man scrammed.

No photos

A robber grabbed the iPhone out of a guy’s hand when he stopped to take a picture on McGuinness Boulevard on Oct. 5.

The victim told police he pulled his phone out of his pocket and held it up to take a picture at the corner of Ash Street at 9 pm. The man came up behind, grabbed the phone with both hands, and ran off.
