Train trauma

Cops cuffed a guy who allegedly hurled homophobic slurs at a woman and knocked her out by punching her in the face on a Downtown-bound Q train on May 20.

The suspect boarded the train in Manhattan and made an offensive comment under his breath, later bumping the woman as the locomotive was heading towards Brooklyn. He began repeatedly yelling “You’re a dyke, I’m going to swing on the dyke,” and proceeded to bash her in the face — knocking her temporarily unconscious, according to a report.

Police arrested the man once he tried to flee DeKalb Avenue station and the woman was taken to to the hospital, where she was given 10 stitches.

Stolen seats

Some sneak swiped a pair of fancy armchairs off Main Street while they were being moved on May 23.

The guy moving the Fritz Hensen series 7 blonde wood swivel armchairs told cops he was transporting the seats from near Front Street to Washington Street around 2:50 am, and had left them out on the street. But when he went to finish the job, he discovered they had been taken, according to a report.


Police are hunting for a bruiser who shot a guy who was walking on Front Street on May 25.

A man was strolling near Bridge Street at 3:13 pm when he heard two shots, felt pain in his leg, and dropped to the ground, according to cops. He noticed had been shot and called 911, but didn’t see anyone else around.

Bag run

A thief snatched a woman’s bag as she was about to get off the 3 train at Clark Street Station on May 21.

The 52-year-old lady got up to step off the Manhattan-bound red bullet as it was approaching the station near Henry Street at 5:30 am, police said. As the doors were opening, the creep pushed her back in, took her bag, and fled, according to a report.

Her bag contained $200, a bank check, shoes, a pocketbook, and clothes, authorities said.

Bridge blunder

Two cads attacked and robbed a man as he was walking on the Manhattan Bridge in the early morning hours of May 23.

The victim told police he was strolling on the span’s pedestrian walkway toward Brooklyn and had approached the Brooklyn Tower when one of the punks grabbed his hands from behind.

A struggle ensued and the jerk punched the victim in the face, according to a report. As they were scuffling, the other weasel went through the guy’s pockets and took his iPhone 6, wallet, license, debit card, and $290, authorities said.
