Roughing the driver

Cops are on the lookout for a 46-year-old man who allegedly leapt on top of an 18-year-old girl as she drove down McDonald Avenue on April 18.

The victim told police that she was near Kings Highway at 12:45 am, when the argument she was having with her passenger turned bitter, and the middle-aged suspect jumped on top of her and began threatening her life, while directly imperiling it for them both.

Gang attack

Four thugs robbed a 17-year-old kid on E. Ninth Street on April 19, roughing him up before taking his iPod.

The victim told police that he was near Avenue P at 4:35 pm, when he suffered a nasty sucker punch courtesy of one of the goons.

“What you got boy?” he snarled, before punching the victim once more.

After knocking the kid around for a while, one of the thieves reached into the victim’s pocket and nabbed his iPod, before the gang started moving west along Avenue P, according to police.

Grocery store goon

Cops are hunting a goon they say attacked a 43-year-old man inside an Avenue Z bodega on April 18.

The victim told police that he was inside the deli between E. 21st and E. 22nd streets at 9:50 pm, when the suspect got in the victim’s face and began barking orders.

“You get f*** out of the store,” the goon barked.

The thug then gave the victim a mighty shove, and the poor man fell right on his nose, according to police.

Spring fever

A 14-year-old boy was arrested for allegedly groping on a 13-year-old girl on Gravesend Neck Road on April 8.

The victim told police that she was between E. 22nd and E. 23rd streets at 2:45 pm when the suspect walked right up to her and squeezed her breasts and buttocks.

Rat pack

A pack of teenaged goons beat up a 15-year-old kid on Nostrand Avenue on April 18.

The victim told police that he was near Quentin Road on his way to school at 8 am when four thugs attacked him without warning. The underage fiends slugged him in the face until he fell to the ground, where they proceeded to stomp and kick him, before they fled.

Bank robbery

A thief robbed an 81-year-old man inside of a Kings Highway bank on April 21, shoving the victim on the floor before taking his cash.

The victim told police that he was inside the bank’s ATM lobby between E. 15th and E. 16th streets at 6:20 am, when the crook came inside and asked the victim for a dollar. As the victim reached into his pockets to grab some cash — trying to help the man — the heartless crook shoved the old man to the ground, grabbed his wallet, and fled.

Gun bust

Cops arrested seven men after a search revealed a sawed-off shotgun and drugs inside of a Bedford Avenue apartment on April 20.

Cops had warrant to search the suspect’s apartment between Avenue U and Gravesend Neck Road at 8:45 pm, where they discovered the scatter gun and drugs.

Not kosher

Cops are hunting a 35-year-old man for allegedly feeling up a woman’s legs at the Kings Highway Jewish center on April 13.

The victim told police that she was at the synagogue between E. 29th Street and Nostrand Avenue at 11:45 am, when the suspect began rubbing her legs, “in a sexual manner,” without permission to do so.

Happy 4:20, dude

Cops arrested a man for his public celebration of April 20 — a date stoners mark by smoking copious amounts of marijuana.

The arresting officer reported that he was on E. 28th Street near Avenue Y at 1:05 am, when he noticed the suspect sparking up an early morning joint. When the officer searched the suspect, he found three more spliffs and five clear capsules of the drug ecstasy, cops said.

Photo threat

Cops are hunting a woman for allegedly threatening another lady over the phone while she was at her Bragg Street apartment on April 16.

The victim told police that she was at her home between Gerritsen Avenue and Avenue U at 8:30 pm when the suspect gave her a call and uttered the threat.

“If you don’t pay me, I’m gonna send your pictures to your father,” the suspect allegedly snarled.
