Police arrested a Department of Education employee for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend inside her Eighth Avenue home in Park Slope on Jan. 7.

The victim, 32, told police her boyfriend, who works at a school in Manhattan, was trying to look at her cellphone, when he cornered her in the bathroom of her apartment between 12th and 13th streets at 9:55 pm, before cursing at her, slapping the phone from her hand, and then elbowing her in the face.

Cops arrested the suspect that night, charging him with misdemeanor assault, according to police.

City education officials immediately suspended the suspect without pay upon receiving notice of the allegations, according to spokesman Doug Cohen.

The victim suffered bruising and swelling as a result of the attack, cops said.

Have a glass!

Hit and run

Some jerk rear-ended a woman’s car parked on Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 5, before fleeing the scene.
