Using his head

The alleged incident occurred between 17th Avenue and Bay 16th Street at around 7:30 p.m., according to the report, which added that the alleged heat-butt caused redness and pain to the police officer on duty — but did not specify why the cop was putting the man in the car.

Scissor hands

A lout stole $20 from a man at the Bay Parkway train station on April 11.

The incident occurred at the train station near 86th Street at around 9:45 a.m., when the scoundrel — who police said was holding a pair of scissors — followed the man off an elevator at the station to a Manhattan-bound D train and demanded the cash.

Send it to voicemail

A nogoodnik swindled a Bay Parkway woman out of $1,500 on April 11 by claiming she won cash and that she had to send money via Google Play gift cards to claim her prize.

The woman, who lives between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue, told police she received the call from a cellphone at around 6 p.m.

Phone scam

A scammer swindled an 82nd Street woman out of more than $2,500 on April 12 by claiming that she owed $3,000 for property that someone allegedly purchased under her name.

The woman, who lives between 18th and 19th avenues, told police that she received the call from a cellphone at around 11 a.m., and that the caller threatened to arrest her if she didn’t pay up.

The victim sent the lout the money via Google Play cards, police reported.

Late-night attack

Police arrested a woman who they say struck another woman with a hard object multiple times on her head and face on Avenue O on April 12.

Car steal

Blinged out

A thief stole jewelry from a 23rd Avenue home on April 13.

The crime occurred from the home between Bath and Cropsey avenues at around 8 p.m., according to the report, which added that the crook fled in an unknown direction.

Dastardly duo

A pair of louts assaulted a woman and stole her credit card and cellphone at a Kings Highway bodega on April 14.

The incident occurred at the bodega between Lake Street and McDonald Avenue at around 3:10 p.m., when the duo followed the woman into the store, where they kicked her in the head, took her phone, and fled in a gray Toyota to an unknown location.

Reasonable discourse

Alyssa leclerc says:
In response of the phone scam section, It's sad to know that there are some people who fall victim to these scams. We should be very familiar with these scams, and keep spreading the word to our family. Protect them from being one of the victims. This is not a new scam scheme, though. I have just Googled about it and found some reports have been filed at even since few months ago. We need to always be updated to these kind of information and keep informing our family.
