Sick details

Cops arrested a 15-year-old boy for spray-painting the words “spaz” and “hicle” on a wheelchair belonging to a Fifth Avenue restaurant on March 19.

A 52-year-old man told police he spotted the alleged vandal tagging the wheelchair outside the diner between Second and Third streets at 11:20 am.

Cops nabbed the teen suspect that day, and slapped him with a misdemeanor graffiti charge, according to police.

Cell for two

Cops arrested a man and his girlfriend after they attacked each other inside their Dean Street apartment on March 24, and then ran on foot to the 78th Precinct house.

The woman, 20, told police her 25-year-old boyfriend bit her on the face inside their apartment between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues at 12:30 pm.

The boyfriend, on the other hand, claims she slapped him, but both told police they fled each other to the station house on Sixth Avenue, where police decided the best thing to do was arrest both of them for misdemeanor assault, cops said.

No glass

Some jerk shattered a window on a woman’s car she parked opposite a zoo on March 21.

The victim told police she left her car on Flatbush Avenue at 8 am, and returned more than five hours later to find she was short one passenger-side window.

Exit strategy

Cops arrested a man for allegedly punching a security guard escorting him out of an Atlantic Avenue arena on March 24.

The guard told police he was showing the suspect the exit at the stadium near Flatbush Avenue at 9:10 pm when the guy clocked him good on the face.

Police picked up the 22-year-old man that day, charging him with misdemeanor assault, cops said.

Wheel crime

A thief stole a man’s bike he locked up outside a Grand Army Plaza library on March 19.

The victim told police he parked his bike on the plaza at noon, and returned later to find his ride stolen.
