Dysfunctional family

A family reunion on Varet Street on May 31 turned violent when a relative bashed a man over the head with a bottle of beer, police reported.

The victim told police that he was at the family party between Bogart and White streets at 3:30 am when he noticed some of his kin arguing. He asked them why they were fighting and one of them responded by hitting him over the head with a bottle of beer, causing a deep cut to his head, the police report states. The victim took himself to Elmhurst Hospital and then reported the incident to police.


Cops cuffed a man who they said stole a woman’s wallet as she was buying a MetroCard at the Broadway G train station on May 29.

The victim told police that she was buying a MetroCard from the vending machine at the station near Union Avenue at 7:10 am when the guy grabbed her wallet out of her hand.

He got her driver’s license, debit card, and $23 in cash, but police arrested the man and charged with robbery.

Big haul

Someone broke into a man’s Havemeyer Street apartment on May 29 and stole multiple electronics, jewelry, and watches, according to authorities.

The victim told police that he left his pad between Hope Street and Metropolitan Avenue at 9 am.

When he returned at 6:30 pm that same day, he found the screen in his window pushed open. His laptop and headphones, charger, sunglasses, camera, and other items were missing, police said.

Playing house

Someone broke into an empty Powers Street apartment on June 1 and stole kitchen appliances, police said.

The foreman of a construction company told police that he went to the house he has been renovating between Olive and Judge streets at 6 pm to find the front door padlock cut off. He went inside and found the stove, refrigerator, vanity, and hand truck all missing, according to the police report.

Wrong door

Police arrested two men who they said took gadgets from a woman’s Metropolitan Avenue apartment on May 28 — after she caught them red-handed.

The victim told police that she left her building between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street to walk her dog at 3 pm. When she returned 15 minutes later, she saw two guys walking out of her building carrying her laptop computer and smartphone, cops reported.

She asked them what they were doing but the men ran away, according to the police report. Police caught them and charged them both with burglary.

Road rage

A man was arrested for attacking a driver on Grand Street on May 27, cops reported.

The victim told police that he was driving near Bushwick Avenue at 9:55 pm when a pedestrian stood in his way and prevented him from continuing.

The man then started spitting on the victim’s car and pulled off his belt, according to police. He wrapped the belt around his fist and punched the victim in the left arm and torso, cops reported.

He then unrolled the belt and started swinging it around like a sword, officials said. Police arrested the man and charged him with assault.
