Exercising restraint

A speedy pair of thieves jacked a victim’s car, tied him up, and stole thousands of dollars in cash from him on Leonard Street at Meeker Avenue on Feb. 28, cops said.

The victim was stopped at a red light at 3 pm when the pair of punks came up to his vehicle and pointed a gun at him.

“Move over unless you want a hole in you,” one of the goons supposedly grunted.

The treacherous twosome made it into the car, drove the guy two blocks away, and tied him up with duct tape and rope, then stole $2,000 and scrammed, a report says.

Lovers quarrel

Police arrested a man after they say he escalated an argument by beaning his boyfriend in the head with a cellphone at the corner of Franklin and N. 15th streets on Feb. 28.

Cops said the suspect was arguing with his beau at 11:05 pm when he smashed the man in the face with the phone and punched him in the eye. Officers arrested the alleged aggressor and charged him with assault.
