Shot in head

A 37-year-old was shot in the back of his head — but miraculously survived — on Nov. 13 as he sat in a car on Batchelder Street, just outside the Sheepshead/Nostrand Houses.

The victim told police that he was sitting in the passenger seat of his friend’s parked Ford Explorer between Avenues V and W at 2:30 pm when he heard gunshots. One of those shots hit the him, but he claimed he never saw the shooter.

Despite being shot in the back of the head, he was listed in stable condition after treatment at Coney Island Hospital.

He was a lot luckier than 25-year-old Ciera Glenn, the young woman who was shot and killed a block away from where he was hit, as she left a Halloween party on Oct. 30.

Cops have yet to make an arrest in either shooting.

Anyone with information regarding these two incidents are urged to come forward. Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Not OK

Two masked thieves raided the OK Meet Food supermarket on 86th Street on Nov. 1, swiping a lockbox containing $3,000.

The thugs surprised the three employees as they barreled into the grocery, which is between W. 9th and W. 8th streets, in Gravesend at 9:32 pm.

The thugs made off with the lockbox after punching one of the witnesses in the face, police were told.

Ecstasy and agony

Three teenage girls jumped an 18-year-old woman following a bizarre, and botched, Nov. 7 Ecstasy buy on Coney Island Avenue.

The woman said that she was walking between Avenue Z and Shore Parkway at 8 pm when the tripped-out trio ran up to her, inquiring if she had any Ecstasy to sell.

When the young woman told the girls to say no to drugs, they beat her and ran off with her purse, cops were told.

Guns and school grounds

Six teenage goons robbed another teen at gunpoint during a harrowing Nov. 8 exchange outside of Sheepshead Bay High School on Avenue X.

The victim was between Batchelder and Coyle streets at 9:40 am when the suspects pulled a gun — and demanded the teen’s headphones.

Police nabbed one of the thieves a short time later, charging him with robbery.

Van Sicklen van winkle

A thief crept into a Van Sicklen Street home on Nov. 5, waking up a 25-year-old sleeping inside.

The victim said he was asleep inside the home, which is between Wolf Place and Avenue W, at 11:45 am when the noise startled him. Investigating, he went into his mother’s room, where he found an unidentified man crawling through the window.

The 25-year-old forced the thief out of the house and called the cops, but the thief was no where in sight when they arrived.

Overpowering perfume

This one doesn’t pass the smell test: A 42-year-old woman was arrested on assault charges for inviting another woman to sniff an overpoweringly pungent name plate that made the unwitting victim pass out on Nov. 5.

Luckily, the victim was already inside Coney Island Hospital on Ocean Parkway at 9 am when the attacker showed up, put the nameplate under her nose and asked her to smell it.

After one whiff, the woman became dizzy. She then became nauseous and her heart rate advanced, police were told. Seconds later, she was unconscious.

Cops arrested the assailant on Nov. 15. It was unclear if they had quarantined the noxious nameplate, however.

Love and baseball bats

A jilted 45-year-old woman was arrested on Nov. 16 after she attacked her boyfriend with a baseball bat.

The victim was arguing with his love inside a Brighton 7th Street apartment between Oceanview and Brighton Beach avenues just before 4 am when the attack took place. The victim suffered a deep cut to the head that needed treatment at a local hospital, police said.

Gunned down

A thug gunned down an 18-year-old on W. 33rd street on Nov. 7, leaving his victim to die in an apartment building lobby.

Witnesses said Tyquell Walker, a resident of Bayview Avenue, which is between Neptune and Mermaid avenues, was in the lobby of the building at 1:15 am when the gunman shot him in the torso.

Paramedics rushed him to Coney Island Hospital, where he died.

Cops were still looking for the shooter by late Tuesday.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting is urged to call the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Fur fiends

Two women and a man raided Mazari’s Fur Store on Brighton 11th Street on Nov. 2.

A worker was manning the store, which is between Brighton Beach and Oceanview avenues, at 1:50 pm when the thieving trio ran inside, removing two fur coats from the racks.

When the worker tried to stop them, he was assaulted, said police, who were still looking for the thieves on Tuesday night.

Anyone with information regarding the theft is urged to come forward.

Calls can be made to the 60th Precinct at (718) 946-3311. All calls will be kept confidential.
