Boardwalk beat down

Four goons beat a man on the Boardwalk on Feb. 23 and tried to swipe his phone, said police.

The man told police that he was walking on the iconic span near near W. 23rd Street at 11:40 pm when the scoundrels approached him demanding cash, but the man had no money.

The louts instead tried to grab the his phone when he took it out to call 911, according to a police report. A tussle ensued and the brutes punched the man multiple times before fleeing on foot, said authorities.

Home invader

Police arrested a man who they say broke into a guy’s Brighton Seventh Street apartment and grabbing cash on Feb. 20, said police.

The victim told police that the alleged thief crept into his apartment between Brightwater Court and Brighton Beach Avenue at 4 pm and busted into a locked cabinet. The man took $1,500 and fled, according to a police report.

Cameras captured the incident and the victim identified the suspect, authorities said.


A bozo tossed a glass bottle out of a ninth-floor window on West Street on Feb. 21 and struck a man in the arm, authorities said.

The victim told police that he was working at a construction site between Avenue Z and Murdock Court when he was suddenly hit on the right arm by the bottle. Police searched the areas but the bottle-throwing baddie was nowhere to be found, officials said.

Raw data

Two women got into fisticuffs over a Verizon memory stick on Avenue W on Feb. 25, said police.

One woman told police that the two got into a verbal dispute over the hardware between W. 11th Street and Stillwell Avenue at 9 pm when the scuffle turned physical. The two baddies punched, kicked, and scraped each other over the drive, authorities said.
