Helter shelter

Cops arrested two women for attacking another woman inside an Eighth Avenue homeless shelter on May 8.

The victim told police she was arguing with the suspects over borrowed money inside a second-floor bathroom inside the refuge between between 15th and 14th avenues at 10:30 pm, when the women attacked her, punching her in the face and scratching her arm.

Both suspects were cuffed that day on misdemeanor assault charges, cops said.


Some thief made off with the computer inside a kiosk at a Nevins Street public housing complex on May 2.

A worker for the city’s Housing Authority told police someone managed to sneak into the locked kiosk at the complext between Baltic and Wyckoff streets at around 4:20 pm, when they nabbed the $1,000 computer and fled.

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

Big bully

Cops have given up the hunt for the creep who followed and then attacked a 13-year-old boy on Bergen Street on May 9.

The victim told police the 35-year-old fiend followed him from school to his bus stop near Fifth Avenue at 2:35 pm, when he started shouting at the boy and shoved him.

The boy was not injured, cops said.

Wheel jerk

Police have called off the search for the vandal who busted up a woman’s car on Third Street on May 9.

The victim told police she spotted the suspect pounding on the hood of her car she parked near Third Avenue at 1:40 pm, leaving dents.


Cops busted a 72-year-old man for allegedly driving drunk on Fifth Avenue on May 10.

A witness told police the suspect smashed into his car near Carroll Street at 5:10 pm, and that he had to remove the man’s keys from the ignition to prevent him from fleeing.

The arresting officer claimed the man was incapable of coherent speech, and blew well over the legal limit on a Breathalyzer test, cops said.
