He socked him

Police arrested a man after he allegedly stole methadone out of another guy’s sock at a Kingland Avenue laundromat on Aug. 16.

According to police, the suspect took the drug out of the sleeping man’s sock at the store between Withers and Jackson streets at 5:40 pm.

The victim called police. When they searched the suspect, they found the methadone with the victim’s name on the bottle, as well as three glassine envelopes full of heroin, according to officials.

Nic fit

A nicotine-addicted bully beat a man when he refused to give him a cigarette on Union Avenue on Aug. 10.

The 22-year-old victim told police he was standing at the corner of Meeker Avenue at 4 am when the man approached him and asked him for a butt.

The victim refused and the bully started punching the victim in the face, causing him to fall down. The tough guy then continued to punch and kick the victim, bruising his face and nose. He then ran off in an unknown direction.

Bad note

Police arrested a man after he allegedly beat a guy, stole the man’s phone, and smashed his amplifier on Leonard Street on Aug. 14.

The 32-year-old victim told police that he got into an argument with the guy at the corner of Richardson Street at 3:50 pm.

Police say the suspect then punched the victim, grabbed his cellphone out of his hand, and smashed his amplifier on the ground. The man was arrested and charged with assault and robbery.

Bad phone plan

A woman was arrested after she stole another woman’s phone and then tried to extort money from her on Wythe Avenue on Aug. 9, cops reported.

The victim told police that she was in a nightclub between N. 11th and N. 12th streets at 11:50 pm. After she had been there for a while, she reached into her purse and found her phone missing.

She called the phone and a woman answered and told her she would return the phone if the vicim gave her $200, police said. The victim set up the meeting and brought police, who arrested the woman and charged her with grand larceny.
