78th Precinct

Park Slope

Absolute rubbish

Cops arrested a woman for allegedly threatening to beat another woman outside an 8th Avenue homeless shelter — with a garbage can — on June 22.

The victim, 24, told police that she was arguing with the 37-year-old suspect outside the refuge between 14th and 15th streets at around 9:15 a.m., when the suspect spat in her face and threatened her with the garbage can, cops said.

Police arrived on the scene and arrested the suspect on third degree assault charges.

Armed and dangerous

A gun-wielding fiend threatened a man on 14th Street on June 24.

The victim told police he was outside his home between Seventh and Eighth avenues when the perp pulled a gun on him at around 10:30 p.m., threatening to shoot the victim, before driving off in a red car, cops said.

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

Dine and dash

Some jerk stiffed a Flatbush Avenue restaurant earlier this month, walking out on his dinner tab.

The manager of the restaurant told police that the food-looter ran up a $163 bill at the restaurant near Atlantic Avenue, before sneaking out at around 3:30 p.m., cops said.

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

Mr. Knife Guy

A brute threatened a man with a knife on Butler Street on June 16.

The victim told police that the bruiser approached him between Nevins Street and Third Avenue at around 9:30 a.m., and began yelling at him, before taking out a knife and threatening the victim, who fled toward Third Avenue, cops said.

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

Failed thief

A wannabe shoplifter attempted to loot an Atlantic Avenue retailer on June 24.

Store reps told police that the woman attempted to leave the store near Flatbush Avenue at around 3 p.m. — without paying for $335 worth of merchandise. When store security confronted the thief, she dumped the ill-gotten goods on the sidewalk and ran off, cops said.

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