A 32-year-old man was arrested for throwing a kitchen knife at another man’s leg inside an Avenue K apartment on Feb. 15.
The victim told police that he was inside the abode between E. 40th Street and Albany Avenue at 1:46 pm when the suspect hurled the knife at him, causing a deep gash in his leg.
Police arrested a 19-year-old man stealing $3,000 from a safe inside an Avenue U building back on Dec. 14.
The victim told police that he was inside the building between E. 70th and E. 71st streets at 3 pm when he placed the hefty sum of cash in the safe and left. He returned the next day to an open — and very empty — safe.
During a subsequent phone conversation between the suspect, a third party, and a secret police eavesdropper, the suspect admitted to taking the cash, although said he wanted to pay the victim back, cops said.
