76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Tea time

A man was buying tea and a bagel at a grocery store on Hicks Street on Jan. 3 when a perp struck him in the face, police said.

A thug wearing black jeans and a black facemask hit the 61-year-old man in the face and slammed a door in his foot at the shop between Luquer and Nelson streets around 3:30 pm. The victim said he did not know his attacker.

Mobile man down

A man was arrested for hitting a man in the foot with a cellphone at an apartment complex on Baltic Street on Jan. 6, police said.

The 18-year-old perp threw a mobile phone at a man’s left foot at the apartment complex between Hoyt and Bond streets and was arrested around 11:23 pm, police said. The suspect refused to be handcuffed as he was being arrested and charged with assault.

Skate away

A criminal broke into a man’s car parked on President Street sometime between Jan. 4 and Jan. 6 and got away with a pair of ice skates, cops said.

The 42-year-old man parked his green Range Rover between Columbia and Hicks streets on Jan. 4 at 5 pm, and when he returned on Jan. 6 at 11:30 am, he noticed his car window was broken. His iPad, iPod mini, and skates were nowhere to be found.

Stop sign

A man was arrested after cops pulled him over for running a stop sign on Baltic Street on Jan. 2 — and upped the charges when they saw he was carrying a knife, police said.

Officers stopped the 48-year-old man driving his Ford Explorer through the light near Nevins Street at 1:40 pm. That’s when they noticed he had the weapon, and arrested him for possessing a weapon and failing to stop at a stop sign.
