Knife toss

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.

Cash grab

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.

Reader feedback

JApplepie from Mill Basin says:
I wish your newspaper was more specific when telling readers about crimes and/or other happenings. Honestly, I don't even bother to read the Police Blotter (or whtever it's called) noting the different precincts, because it leaves me in a fog, wondering where, exactly, the incident occurred. Pure nonsense. What are you afraid of? PLEASE give details or don't even bother to relate half-assed stories. Oh, maybe you re trying to fill up space. Mmmm, never thought of that.
