Stick fight

Cops cuffed a 34-year-old woman for hitting another woman in the head with a selfie stick on Baltic Street on Nov. 14.

The two ladies got into a verbal spat between Hoyt and Bond streets at 9:15 am, but the dispute escalated when one woman allegedly slapped the other with her hand and then hit her foe in the head with the camera accessory, according to authorities.

The suspect also resisted arrest, according to police.

The two women are strangers but live in the same apartment building, officials said.

Illegal substances

Police arrested a woman for allegedly trespassing on the roof of a Columbia Street city housing authority building while carrying illegal drugs on Nov. 2.

Officers say they spotted the 34-year-old woman on the roof between Mill Street and Centre Mall at 10:23 pm then found heroin and a glass pipe with cocaine residue on her. The woman told the police she didn’t have anything else on her but they allegedly later found needles, according to authorities.

Playground punk

Cops cuffed a teen who they say swiped a guy’s cellphone and jacket in a Bay Street park on Nov. 13.

The 24-year-old victim told police he set his things down in the green space between Columbia and Clinton streets at 11 am and when he returned at noon, they were gone.

Police arrested a 16-year-old for swiping the guy’s Apple iPhone 6S, Puma jacket, and house keys, according to authorities.

Hit the jackpot

A crook swiped tons of electronics and clothing from a guy’s van parked on Clinton Street on Nov. 11.

The victim told police he parked his 2008 General Motors Savannah white van between Carroll Street and First Place at 1 am and when he returned at 1 pm, noticed the rear door lock was gone and 30 items were missing — including an Apple MacBook Pro, vocal synthesizers, disc jockey mixers, cables, sweatshirts, and custom lighting, according to authorities.
