Four against one

A brute slashed a teen walking home from school while three of his buddies held the victim still on Hoyt Street on March 13.

The victim told police he was near Bergen Street at about 9 pm when the goon said “Do you have a problem?” The victim told him no and then the lout tried to punch him, officials said.

Three other jerks then joined in, and held the victim’s arm behind him so the first malefactor could cut the right side of his face, causing a deep cut, police said. The victim was taken to Kings County to Hospital.


A baddie stole from a guy and threatened him with a box cutter on Court Street on March 13, police said.

The victim told police he was inside a store between Schermerhorn and State streets at about 1:30 pm when the scalawag showed the blade and said, “Be careful before I cut you,” according to authorities. The report did not say what the man stole.

Big break

A burglar broke into a woman’s Hicks Street home and stole thousands of dollars worth of her stuff on March 17.

The looter got into her abode between Pineapple and Clark streets through a door sometime between 4:35 pm and 6 pm, and then ransacked the place, stealing her MacBook laptop, bank bonds, $500, $1,000 in jewelry, and pricey Ray Ban sunglasses, according to authorities.

Bad hit

Cops cuffed a 22-year-old man for allegedly hitting an officer on Schermerhorn Street on March 16.

Police were called to a courthouse between Boerum Place and Smith Street at about 2:20 pm because the suspect was in a fight, but when the arresting officer tried to apprehend him, he allegedly hit the officer in the right eye, causing it to bleed, according to authorities.

While she was sleeping

Some cad swiped a woman’s cellphone after she fell asleep aboard a Manhattan-bound A train near Willoughby and Jay streets on March 15, police said.

The woman told police the snake took her Samsung Galaxy 6 phone out of her jacket pocket as she was dozing at about 9:30 am, according to authorities.

Pocket pilfer

A sneak thief swiped a woman’s phone from her pocket on Remsen Street on March 3, police said.

The victim told police on March 13 that she was near Court Street at about 2:15 pm when the weasel must have bumped into her and grabbed her Apple iPhone, according to authorities.

Street snatcher

A pirate plundered a guy’s electronic tablet on Smith Street on March 13, police said.

The guy told police he had just left court near Schermerhorn Street at about 3 pm when the purloiner must have grabbed his LG tablet from inside his bag, according to authorities.
