61st Precinct

Sheepshead Bay—Homecrest— Manhattan Beach—Gravesend

Learn to park

A 39-year-old man was arrested for driving under the influence on Gravesend Neck Road on May 12.

The arresting officer reported that he was near E. 14th Street at 11:50 pm when he saw the man asleep in the driver’s seat of his Acura MVX, which was parked on the sidewalk and had keys in the ignition.

When the officer spoke with the driver, he noticed the driver had slurred speech, red watery eyes, the smell of alcohol on his breath, and that he was unsteady on his feet.

Underaged attack

A 17-year-old girl was arrested for robbing of her cellphone and wallet a woman on E. 18th Street — back on Jan. 23.

The victim told police that she was between Avenues S and T at 9:50 pm when the teen, who was with two other men, punched her in the face and took her valuables.

Lost and kept

Cops arrested a 44-year-old woman for stealing earrings — worth more than $3,000 — that were dropped on the floor of a Emmons Avenue restaurant on May 10.

The manager told police that he was inside the eatery between E. 21st and Dooley streets at 9:17 pm when he noticed the woman pick up the pair of earrings that another patron had dropped.

Business break-in

A 47-year-old man was arrested for robbing a Kings Highway business on April 22.

Surveillance footage from the business between E. 17th and E. 18th streets shows the suspect enter the business at 5:05 pm, go into the victim’s office, and leave with a laptop, cops said.
