Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate
A crazed woman attacked a guy with her high-heeled shoes after he tried to break up a fight between her husband and some other guy at a park on Shore Parkway on April 16, police records show.
The guy saw the altercation at the park near Bay 44th Street around 3:20 pm and intervened. But the woman apparently did not want the fight to end, so she starting hitting the victim in the face with her stilettos, making a bloody gash in the man’s cheek, police reported.
Three masked robbers beat up and shook down a teen waiting for a train at the elevated W. Eighth Street station on April 11, according to a police report.
The teen got on the F train at the Avenue I station and took it to the train station near Surf Avenue around 2:50 pm, according to police. She was waiting for a Q train there when three women wearing all black clothes and white masks came up from behind her. They pulled her hair, pushed her to the ground, and began kicking her, police said. They allegedly took some of her clothes, her school identification card, and fled.
A thief tried to trick a man into giving up his cellphone on Mermaid Avenue on April 11 — and got violent when he refused, police said.
The victim was walking home from the train station near W. 32nd Street around 8:30 pm when a guy approached and asked to borrow his phone to call someone.
The oldest trick in the book did not work though, and the victim refused to give up his phone — so the thief just kicked him in leg, took the phone, and dashed, according to a police report.
Burglars hit two different public housing building utility rooms on W. 33rd and W. 31st Street on April 14, continuing the streak of weekly break-ins at Coney Island public housing complexes over the last six weeks or so.
Someone ransacked the utility room at the W. 33rd Street building building between Surf and Mermaid avenues and broke open a door leading to a tool room.
A New York City Housing Authority employee discovered the burglary around 1 pm. He found the door leading to outside of the maintenance room was open, even though he locked it the night before. He found a hammer, a screwdriver, and a knife on the refrigerator in the room, but no property missing, police reported.
Three hours later a worker found three rolls of copper wire worth a total of $165 missing from a utility room at the W. 31st Street building also between Mermaid and Surf avenues, although he did not find any damage to the door, frame, or jamb, officials said.
