Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Bad aim

A good-for-nothing swung at his girlfriend with an umbrella in their Bay 26th Street home on March 11, but missed and clocked her relative in the face.

The victim told police that the couple had been arguing in their apartment between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at 10 am, when the ruffian grabbed an umbrella and swung at his girlfriend. But the woman dodged the blow that instead struck her relative, officials said.

The victim was taken to Maimonides Medical Center for treatment, said police.

With friends like these

A man shot a woman several times in the leg on Kings Highway on March 14, said police.

The woman told police that she was walking between E. 13th and E. 14th streets when the gunman, who she describes as her “friend,” approached her at 5:40 am and shot her multiple times in the right leg.

Emergency responders took the woman to Maimonides Medical Center, authorities said.

Jealous much?

Four goons beat a man on Cropsey Avenue on March 17.

The man told police that he was near 86th Street at 10 pm when the four men approached him. When one of the ruffians said, “You looking at my girl,” the brutes pulled out blunt objects and viciously beat the man, authorities said.

Grave digger

A woman beat a man with a shovel on Highlawn Avenue on March 17 after he refused to give her money, said police.

The man told police that the two argued between W. Fifth and W. Sixth streets at 11 pm. When he refused to give her cash, the brute grabbed a shovel and repeatedly struck the man over the head, police said.
