78th Precinct

Park Slope

Concrete jungle

Some vandal went on a wrecking spree on Flatbush Avenue sometime overnight on April 25, busting windows of four different vehicles.

Four people complained to police that when they left their vehicles along Flatbush near a popular Prospect Park attraction between 9 pm and 2 am the next day, they returned later to find at least one window of their cars busted.

Fortunately, none of the victims complained about stolen property, cops said.

No arrests have been made and the case has been closed, according to police.

Walk in the park

A 13-year-old girl smacked a 37-year-old woman in the face inside Prospect Park on April 27.

The victim told police she was in Brooklyn’s Backyard near Lincoln Road and East Drive at 5:40 pm, when the girl hit in her the face as she walked by.

The teen was not arrested, and police have closed the case, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a woman’s bike she left inside a parking lot near her Fourth Avenue home on April 15.

The victim told police she locked her bike in the lot between 12th and 13th streets at 7:30 pm, and returned almost two weeks later to find her ride stolen.

Candy man

Cops busted a 38-year-old man on burglary charges for allegedly stealing candy from the lobby of an Eighth Avenue apartment building on May 5.

Surveillance footage shows the suspect enter the lobby of the building between Third and Fourth streets at 7:15 pm, before snagging the package full of red candy and fleeing, according to authorities.

Hog wash

Some crook drove away with a man’s motorcycle he parked on Polhemus Place on May 3.

The victim told police he parked his hog between Carroll Street and Garfield Place at 6 pm, and returned two days later to find his bike stolen.
