Back door bandit

Cops cuffed a guy for trying to break into a Hampton Avenue home on Oct. 9.

The suspect tried to get in through the back door between Exeter and Ocean avenues about 2:30 pm, but police stopped him in his tracks, according to authorities.

Road rage

Police arrested a 42-year-old man for smashing another man on his head with a glass bottle on E. 15th Street on Oct. 9. The two got into an argument after one hit the other’s car near Kings Highway at about 7 pm, but it escalated and the suspect hit the victim in the head with the bottle, causing him to bleed, according to authorities.

Key suspect!

A punk keyed a guy’s car parked on Avenue V on Oct. 10, police said.

The guy told police he had parked his car between E. Seventh Street and Ocean Parkway at about 7:30 pm and some nogoodnik ran a key over it from the back to the front passenger side door, causing paint damage, according to authorities.

Tool thief

Some baddies broke into a construction site on Shell Road and swiped thousands of equipment on Oct. 12, police said.

The jerks broke into the site between Avenues X and Y sometime between 6 and 7:15 am and ran off with $9,000 worth of tools, according to authorities.

Bag snatchers

Two ruffians threatened a teen and swiped his backpack on E. 28th Street on Oct. 13, police said.

The 14-year-old told police the two goons came up to him near Avenue P at about 1 pm and said, “Give me your bag or I’m gonna f--- up,” officials said. The snakes then forcibly grabbed the teen’s bag off his back and ran off with the contents inside, including a $1,200 macbook laptop, according to authorities.
