60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate


A knife-wielding wacko slashed a man on the Riegelman Boardwalk Bench on Sept. 1.

The victim told police the punk approached him between Riegelman Boardwalk and Brighton First Road and demanded cash at 7:30 p.m., when the victim refused and the bruiser punched him in the head and before slashing him on the left arm with a knife, police said.

Bruised Fruit

Police cuffed two men for allegedly nabbing fruit from a Brighton Beach Avenue bodega on Sept. 5.

An employee told police the crooks stole food from the store between Brighton Second and Third streets at 3 a.m., but when he confronted the thieves, they pulled out brass knuckles and a knife, before fleeing.

Rude awakening

Cops cuffed a brute for allegedly choking his flame while she was asleep inside her Gravesend apartment on Sept. 2.

The victim told police her beau attacked her inside her bedroom between avenues V and W at 1:50 a.m., strangling her hard enough to leave bruise marks on her neck, police said.

Bad call

Some crooks nabbed a phone from a man as he was leaving Grady Playground on Sept. 6.

The victim told police punks attacked him at the green space near Brighton Fourth Street and Brighton Fourth Road at 1 a.m., punching and shoving him, before taking his phone.
