Ride and run

A miscreant sprayed a cabbie in the eyes with an unknown liquid and fled a taxi without paying his fare on 86th Street on Dec. 31, said police.

The cabbie told authorities that he picked up the punk at 96th Street and Second Avenue at 12:45 am and drove him to 86th Street between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Gatling Place.

When they reached their destination the nogoodnik sprayed the cabbie in the eyes with an unknown liquid and ran out of the cab without paying for the ride, authorities said.


Two goons struck a man with a glass bottle on Fort Hamilton Parkway on Dec. 27, said police.

The man told officials that he was near 62nd Street at 11:40 am when he got into a verbal dispute with the louts. The argument escalated when one of the brutes smashed a glass bottle into the man’s face, slicing open his upper lip.

Emergency responders took the victim to Lutheran Medical Center, officials said.


A bandit broke into a woman’s Bay Ridge Parkway apartment on Dec. 31, authorities said.

The woman told police that she entered her apartment between Third and Fourth avenues at 7 pm and discovered the place had been tossed. Upon further inspection she noticed the rear window by the fire escape was wide open, said police.

But the thief only made off with $50, officials said.
