78th Precinct

Park Slope

Still sharp

Cops arrested a 60-year-old man for allegedly stabbing a guy on Prospect Place on July 23.

The victim, 30, told police he got tied up in a shouting match with the suspect between Colton and Vanderbilt avenues at 8:50 pm, when the older guy drew a knife and plunged into his right arm, before slashing his torso.

Police cuffed the suspect that day, charging him with felony assault, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s motorcycle he parked on Warren Street on July 24.

The victim told police he left his Yamaha Zuma between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 7:30 pm, and returned early the next morning to find an empty spot where his pricey import had been.

No arrests have been made, and the case has been closed, cops said.

Rough commute

Police busted a man for allegedly stealing a woman’s iPhone aboard an R train at the Fourth Avenue and Ninth Street station on July 23.

The victim told police she was gazing at her phone on the Manhattan-bound train at 4:40 pm when the suspect snatched the device and fled into the station.

But a patrolman soon grabbed the guy upstairs on the F-train platform, and the victim pointed him out as her thief, earning him a felony grand larceny charge, cops said.

Bright guy

Some kook started a trash fire inside a Fourth Avenue apartment building on July 19.

The fire marshal told police that somebody lit off an incendiary inside the residential building between President and Carroll streets at 1:08 am, putting tenants in serious risk of injury.

No arrests have been made, however, and the case is closed, cops said.

Cracked up

Cops arrested a man for possession of crack cocaine inside a Second Avenue parking garage on July 24.

The arresting officer reportedly found the suspect in possession of hypodermic needles filled with the illegal narcotic inside the garage between Ninth and 12th streets at 9:17 pm, before cuffing him on a misdemeanor possession charge.
