60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Not my phone!

A 15-year-old boy was arrested for robbing a man at gunpoint on Brighton Beach Avenue on Oct. 1 — taking cash and trying to take his phone, too, police said.

The victim told police that he was near Ocean Parkway at 10:04 am when the suspect pulled a gun on him and demanded cash.

“Give me everything you’ve got,” he allegedly snarled, and the victim handed over a wad of cash. An accomplice then appeared, and patted down the victim, before exclaiming, “He’s got a phone,” police reported.

The victim took off running, while the suspect allegedly bellowed, “Give me your phone!”

One punch

A 48-year old man is being charged with punching another man in the face on W. 32nd Street on Oct. 1.

The victim told police that he was between Neptune and Mermaid avenues at 10:40 pm when the suspect served him a knuckle sandwich.

Night to remember

Police arrested a 25-year-old man who they say was drinking in public and rambling belligerently after a police officer confronted him on Avenue W on Sept. 30.

The arresting officer said he found the suspect between Stillwell Avenue and W. 13th Street at 9 pm, drinking liquor from a bottle in front of the New York City Housing Authority — a public building. The officer asked the suspect to identify himself, to which he replied, “I’ve already been to prison, and I don’t have to tell you my name,” among other colorful statements, cops said.

Police say the suspect then hurled the bottle at the ground, shattering it and preventing the officer from recovering it as evidence, but not preventing the officer from taking the suspect to the 60th Precinct station house.

Inside the station house, a relative of the suspect identified him, but the suspect denied it. Eventually, he relented, and cops told the suspect that it was a crime to provide police with a false pedigree, to which he allegedly replied, “I don’t care.”

Face fracas

A 20-year-old man was arrested for assaulting another man on Stillwell Avenue on Sept. 30.

The victim told police that he was near Surf Avenue at 1:10 am when the suspect began pumelling him in the face, causing bruises and lacerations.
