60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Coney vs. Gravesend

A gun-toting baddie shot a man in the butt and leg on Mermaid Avenue on June 17.

The brute pulled out a firearm and fired five rounds at a man between W. 27th and W. 28th street at 1:30 am, police said. One bullet pierced the man’s left buttocks and another went through his right leg, according to a police report. The victim told police that the man shouted, “What block are you from? We’re from Gravesend,” and then began firing.

Emergency responders removed the victim to Lutheran Medical Center for treatment, officials said.

Boardwalk brawl

Two toughs arguing on the Boardwalk on June 13 ganged up and robbed the good Samaritan who tried to break up the fight.

The victim told police the pair were having a screaming match near Stillwell Avenue at 5:30 am when he tried to calm them down, but that only made them redirect their anger at him.

One baddie punched the victim in the face, while the other grabbed a glass bottle and struck him, cutting the man’s finger, according to a police report. They cretins swiped the man’s wallet before bolting down the Boardwalk, officials said.


A goon robbed a Mermaid Avenue bodega at gunpoint on June 16.

The cashier told police that he was working behind the counter between W. 27th and W. 28th streets just after midnight when a man suddenly brandished a black handgun. The panicked robber shouted, “Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, give me the money,” and then cocked the gun as the bodega clerk coughed up $300, said authorities.

No good deed

A lout stabbed a man in the armpit after he tried to break up a fight on W. 31st Street on June 16.

The victim told police he was hanging out on a stoop between Mermaid and Surf avenues at 10 pm when an argument broke out. He tried to intervene, but one of the men pulled out a blade and stabbed him in the armpit, officials said.
