Rough ride

Police cuffed a woman for allegedly stealing a man’s phone and biting him while sharing a ride on Myrtle Avenue on Aug. 2.

The victim told police he was sharing an Uber Pool with the suspect when the two got into a fight about turning down the music and the woman allegedly snatched the guy’s cell and sat on it, near Vanderbilt Avenue at 11:30 p.m.

The guy tried to get back his phone from under the woman’s rear end, but she fended him off by biting his arm, according to police.

Cops arrested the woman half an hour later and slapped her with felony robbery charges, according to authorities.

Hell in a cell

One malcontent beat a woman with a cell phone inside of a Tillary Street homeless shelter on Aug. 4.

The victim told police she the knave approached her inside the shelter near Prince Street at 11:05 a.m., and began to beat her with a phone.

The attack left the victim with 2 lumps, swelling, and a bloodshot eye, cops said.

Not WhatsApp

A Fort Greene Man was using the WhatsApp messaging service on his phone when two lowlifes slid into his chats and demanded $150 — or else — on July 27.

The shysters threatened to harm the victim’s family amid an unrelenting barrage of messages that spanned two days, which eventually broke the man down, and he sent the scum money over the app, before changing his phone, cops said.

Loot and scoot

Cops cuffed a man for allegedly stealing two rental scooters, along with spare parts sometime between July 23 and Aug. 2.

Scooter rental company Revel told police that reps discovered mopeds at the Ingersoll Housing Projects had been stripped of parts, while two other scooters had vanished altogether.

Police arrested the suspect shortly after the theft was reported, cops said.

Cell snatcher

The victim set her phone down on the checkout counter at the store between Clinton and Waverly avenues at 10 a.m., when the suspect snatched and made a beeline for the door.

Fortunately, store employee managed to intercept her and police cuffed her on a felony larceny charge, cops said
