Road rage

An argument over a minor auto accident became a slasher horror on Cropsey Avenue on Feb. 9, according to cops.

The victim said he and another motorist suffered a fender bender at the intersection of 16th Avenue at 8:45 pm, and an argument between the two broke out.

The other driver drew a pocketknife and cut open the victim’s face, before jumping back in his Jeep and fleeing, the victim told cops.

Bottled violence

The victim said he was walking between W. Sixth and W. Seventh streets at 5:30 am when the villain cracked him on the left ear with the container.

Domestic violence

A lowlife held up a man with a kitchen knife on Cropsey Avenue on Feb. 10, authorities say.

The victim told cops he was near Bay 34th Street on his way home home at 12:15 am when the perp came up with with the household utensil and demanded he surrender the contents of his pockets.

The victim gave up his phone and wallet, and the blade-wielding fiend fled.

Protect ya neck

Two villains choked and robbed a man on 86th Street on Feb. 8, police report.

The victim said he was near 21st Avenue, walking home at 1 am, when one of the lowlifes grabbed him by the throat from behind, while the other raided his pockets and removed $300 in cash and his Guatemalan passport.

The first perp then shoved the victim to the ground, and the two scrammed.

Craigslist creep

An internet swindler scammed a 22-year-old 65th Street woman out of thousands with the promise of a job on Feb. 8, cops say.

The victim said she applied for an position listed on the internet classifieds site Craigslist from her home on between 15th and 16th avenues, and got a call from the schemer that she had gotten the job. The con man sent her two checks for $6,291.87, and told her to deposit them in her personal account and write and deliver checks to three of his vendors.

The victim complied, and signed three checks totalling $4,799.10 and personally gave them to the supposed employees — only to get a call at 2 pm on Feb. 8 that the checks she had received were fraudulent, and she was out the four grand in dough.
