Break it up!

A bozo punched a cop in the back of the head on Jay Street on Sept. 11.

Police say the officer was on his near Fulton Street at 4:20 pm when he was flagged down by a group of people saying that there was a fight happening.

When the cop tried to break up the skirmish, one of the brawlers struck the officer in the back of the head. Once the blow connected, the miscreants scattered, according to a report.

With friends like these

A barbaric bar-goer tried to strangle his friend at a Gold Street bar on Sept. 13, according to the police.

The victim told cops that he and his buddy were at the watering hole near Concord Street at 3:20 am when they started arguing, and the conflict quickly escalated with the good-for-nothing started choking him.

The reprobate began to constrict the victim’s windpipe and then eventually threw the victim to the ground, and fled the bar through the back door, cops say. Emergency workers treated victim for his injuries at the sight, a report states.

Felonious femmes

Two thieves snagged a woman’s smartphone and wallet on Joralemon Street on Sept. 13 and then when she pursued them, they held her off with an umbrella, cops say.

The victim was near Boerum Place at 2 am when a pair of women approached her from behind and snatched her smartphone, ID, and debit card from her back pocket, and fled down a nearby alley, cops say.

When the victim gave chase, the two eventually stopped, at which point one of the dames brandished an umbrella, shoving in the victim’s face, saying “What are you going to do?” according to a report. The pair of thieves then fled to parts unknown, the police say.

Bike bozo

Cops cuffed a man who they say rode a stolen Citi Bike on the Schermerhorn Street sidewalk on Sept. 9

The cops stopped a man who they say was riding on the sidewalk on a Citi Bike near Third Avenue at 2:30 pm. The police later discovered that the bike was still on record as being docked at a nearby station.

The pedaling punk later admitted that he had not rented the bike, but did not state how he had obtained it, the report stated.
