That’s my spot!

Cops cuffed a man who they say sent a guy to the hospital after a heated argument over a Mermaid Avenue parking spot on March 30 turned violent, according to police.

The two got into an argument about a parking spot near W. 23rd Street around 2:20 pm. It took a turn for the worst when one driver grabbed a metal pipe and hit the other over the back, prompting a trip to the emergency room, police said.

Muggers nabbed

Police arrested two men who they say beat up and robbed a guy on Shell Road on March 30.

The robbery happened between Avenue Z and Shore Parkway around 9 pm — the thieves ganged up on the guy and stole some electronics he had on him and even his eyeglasses, according to police.

Fast and infuriating

A car thief sped off in a man’s ride from its Surf Avenue parking spot on April 1, police said.

The car owner parked his wheels between W. 15th Street and Stillwell Avenue around 11 am with the keys in the ignition. He got out was less than a block away from the vehicle when he turned around to see it was missing.

What a nightmare

An opportunistic pickpocket stole a dozing commuter’s backpack, cellphone, and cash out of his pockets somewhere between Harlem and Bay 50th Avenue on March 30, according to a police report.

The victim boarded the D train at the 125th Street station in Manhattan, but fell asleep and woke up at the station near Stillwell Avenue missing all his stuff, police said.
