Bike fight

Two men were arrested for taking part in assaulting two other men on Hoyt Street on Nov. 2, police said.

Police say the victims were near Warren Street at 2:17 am when a large group attacked them — beating the victims with their fists and causing swelling.

The two suspects then took the bikes belonging to the victims, as well as one of their phones, police reported.

Can you blame him?

Police cuffed a man who they say did not return $10,000 to a check-cashing clerk who mistakenly gave him a pack of 100 dollar bills instead of dollar bills at a store on Flatbush Avenue on Oct. 30, police said.

The man was attempting to cash a check for $578.61 at the store near Schermerhorn Street at 12:42 pm, police said. When cops arrested him, he said that he had already burned through the money.

Minor threat

A man was arrested for pointing a gun at another person back on June 30 on State Street, police said.

Police say the victim and suspect were near Bond Street at 10 pm when the suspect aimed the gun at the victim.

“I’m going to let you live,” he allegedly told the victim.
