Taking a bite of crime

Police arrested a teenage woman who they say bit a guy’s lip so hard that she permanently disfigured him.

Cops said the pair was arguing at the corner of Lee Avenue and Rodney Street at 5:30 am on Feb. 28, and the 19-year-old chomped the guy on the kisser. Officers arrested the woman and charged her with assault, according to a report.

House arrest

Officers cuffed a man who they say a woman found in her apartment on Scholes Street taking stuff on Feb. 28.

The victim said she returned to her home between Manhattan and Graham avenues at 7:12 pm to find the stranger in her pad.

The accused had gathered her laptop, portable camera, laptop charger, passport, and camera lens, law enforcement officials said. The woman struggled with the guy in her hallway and injured her leg in the process, a report says.

Police arrived on the scene, arrested the fellow, and charged him with burglary.

No good deed

A robber stole a guy’s phone on Seigel Street on Feb. 27, police said

The victim said that he was standing in front of a building between Manhattan and Graham avenues waiting for a Chinese food delivery at 6:45 pm when the bandit asked to use his phone. The good Samaritan handed it over, but the lout refused to return it, pulled the victim into a lobby, and went through his pockets, according to cops.

High-tech heist

Police arrested two men for allegedly breaking into a synagogue on Heyward Street and trying to steal electronics on March 1.

A man at the synagogue between Lee and Marcy avenues called 911 at 2:01 am to report that there were two strange men inside, according to the authorities. Officers arrived and found the pair carrying a digital camera, a cellphone, and a USB hotspot, a report says. The cops arrested both men and charged them with burglary.

Hell hail

Police arrested a man who they say refused to pay his taxi bill and threatened to shank the driver.

The cabbie picked up the fare at the corner of Gates and Wyckoff avenues at 12:50 am on Feb. 26 and drove him to McKibbin Street between Bushwick Avenue and White Street, NYPD officials said. When the cab arrived there, the suspect refused to pay his $8 bill, cops said.

“Don’t turn around or I will stab you,” he supposedly said.

He then got out of the car and ran towards a building, according to a police report. The hack chased down the passenger and saw a box cutter in his right hand, he said. Cops arrived on the scene and chased the suspect over a fence before cornering him. Officers charged the man with robbery and possession of a weapon.
