94th Precinct

Greenpoint–Northside

Snatch and dash

A pair of perpetrators attacked a woman and ran off with her purse on N. 10th Street on Nov. 4, officers said.

The 26-year-old victim said that she was between Wythe and Kent avenues at 7:30 pm when they started punching and kicking her. One of the louts grabbed the purse off her shoulder and they ran off, cops stated.

Razor-thin margin

Police arrested a man who they say slashed a guy at a Skillman Avenue homeless shelter on Nov. 8.

The 33-year-old victim said he was arguing with the 55-year-old suspect at the shelter near Kingsland Avenue at 10 pm when the accused suddenly pulled out a razor and slashed him in the face and chest.

The suspect was cuffed and charged with assault.

Lightning quick

Officers took a man into custody who they say stole a woman’s bicycle from the hallway of her India Street building on Nov. 5.

The 34-year-old victim said she was in her apartment between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street at 9:20 pm when she heard noise in the hallway.

She looked out the window and spotted the suspect strolling away with her mountain bike, police said. She called to her husband and the two of them ran after the man and cornered him, per a report. They called the police, and officers came and charged the 31-year-old suspect with burglary, cops said.
