Gang attack

A trio of bullies attacked a teenager on Havemeyer Street on June 19, seriously injuring him.

The 15-year-old boy told police that he was at the northeast corner of Borinquen Place at 5:30 pm when three punks attacked him. They beat him in his face and head with a baseball bat and their fists, and kicked him multiple times in the neck and face.

The victim was taking a hospital with a broken jaw and multiple skull fractures. The attackers ran away and have not been caught.

Moving in

A tough guy attacked a man as he was leaving his Clymer Street apartment on June 20 — beating and attempting to rob him.

The 30-year-old victim told police that he was leaving his apartment between Bedford and Wythe avenues at 9:30 pm. As he was locking the door, an unknown man came up from behind and grabbed him.

“Give me your wallet,” the man demanded several times. When the victim turned around, the robber punched him in the side of the head and then ran away in a green or blue sedan with Connecticut plates.

Taxi terror

Police arrested a belligerent taxicab customer who they say attacked his driver on Scott Avenue in the early morning of June 22.

The driver told police that he drove his customer to the corner of Meserole Street at 4:47 am. The two got into an argument and then the customer got out of the cab and threw a Snapple bottle at the driver side window, smashing the window and cutting the cabbie’s face, cops reported.

Emergency services took the victim to Woodhull Hospital and police arrested the defendant and charged him with assault.

A few seconds flat

Some lousy neighbor stole a woman’s purse out of the stroller she had left in a Throop Avenue building hallway on June 22.

The 27-year-old victim told police that she was getting ready to head outside of her building between Broadway and Middleton Street with her baby at noon and put the stroller with the purse in it outside of her apartment door for a moment.

When she came out of her apartment a moment later, her purse was gone, along with $50 in cash, her cellphone, and a credit card.

Passed out

Someone broke into a woman’s McKibben Street apartment and stole her laptop computer when she was passed out drunk with her front door unlocked on June 21.

The 20-year-old victim told police that she came back to her apartment between Bushwick Avenue and White Street at 2:30 am after a night of drinking and forgot to lock her door. When she woke up a half an hour later, she found her laptop gone.

One thing on his mind

A pick up artist went home with a S. Fourth Street woman on June 21 — and stole from her and her roommate.

One of the victims, a 29-year-old woman, told police that she picked up a guy in a Manhattan bar. They went back to her abode between Keap and Hooper streets at midnight.

As soon as he was in the door, the man asked to go upstairs to use the bathroom. After waiting for a while for the man to come back, the woman went to look for him and found him gone — along with her and her roommate’s laptops.

Rough customer

Police arrested a worker who they say slammed his coworker with a heavy door at a Harrison Avenue construction site on June 20.

The 49-year-old victim told police that he was working in the site between Wallabout and Gerry streets at 8:40 am and got to an argument with his coworker.

As the suspect was angrily leaving, police say he intentionally pushed the steel door into the victim, causing cuts, bleeding, and pain to his right hand. Police arrested a 50-year-old man was arrested and charged him with assault.
