Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Knife to meet you

Police arrested a 27-year-old who they said robbed a man at knifepoint on W. Fifth Street back on March 26 — taking his bag of pricey designer belts.

The victim told police that he was near W. Brighton Avenue at 7:45 pm when the man drew a blade and demanded he hand over his bag of Hermes belts — which can range in price from hundreds to thousands of dollars.

The suspect then slashed the victim’s hands with his knife before fleeing with the belts, police said.

Bash brother

A 19-year-old man was arrested for breaking into an Oceanview Avenue house on June 1.

The homeowner told police that he was near Brighton 11th Street at 10:55 pm when he saw the suspect break one of the windows and enter his home.

According to police, the suspect resisted arrest by flailing his arms and refusing to be handcuffed.

Car crook

Cops arrested a 22-year-old man who they said stole a woman’s 2009 Toyota Corolla that was parked on Kings Highway on May 29.

A witness told police that he was using the victim’s car and double-parked it between W. Sixth and W. Seventh streets at 7:49 pm, leaving the keys in the center console. When he returned about a minute later, the vehicle was missing.

Another witness told police that he saw the suspect enter the vehicle and drive off.
