Bag snatcher

Cops cuffed a man for allegedly robbing a woman at knifepoint on Brighton Fourth Street on Jan. 8.

The victim told authorities she was walking near Brighton Fourth Road just before 1:30 pm when the suspect jumped out of a black car and pointed a knife at her. He then snatched her purse off her shoulder, according to police.

The man then allegedly drove off towards Neptune Avenue, cops said.

Police cuffed the man two days later at W. Eighth Street near Lake Place at 4 pm, a spokesman for the authorities said.

Box-cutter bandit

A punk robbed a man at knifepoint on W. Fifth Street on Jan. 8.

Rowdy juvenile

Police arrested a teen for allegedly attacking faculty at an Ocean Parkway school on Jan. 11.

The girl allegedly refused to give the dean her identification at the school near Shore Parkway at 10 am, and when another person came to assist the dean, the girl allegedly grabbed that person’s hair and punched her several times in the face, causing swelling to her right eye, cheek, and scalp, according to police.

The student also allegedly kicked another person in the right knee, causing bruising, swelling, and discomfort to her knee, the authorities said.

Paramedics rushed both victims to Coney Island Hospital, according to police.
