Bad Samaritan

The Brooklyn Paper

A man beat up an employee of a Carlton Avenue bodega who had tried to stop a 10-year old shoplifter on April 10.

The trouble began for the 49-year-old victim at around 8:45 pm when he tried to a nab a lad for stealing a can of soda from his shop, between Myrtle and Park avenues. The worker pursued the boy only to be confronted by an aggressive man who asked, “What you say to the kid?”

The defender of juvenile thieves then punched the clerk, dragged him outside and struck him repeatedly with an unknown object, leaving him bloodied and bruised.

Tale of tape

Police arrested two men on April 11 for stealing computers from a North Portland Avenue building.

Security videos enabled police to identify the two suspects, aged 46 and 47, who had allegedly taken two computers from a treatment center, which is between Myrtle and Park avenues, after noon on April 7.

Took a swing

A woman was arrested for clobbering another lady with an anti-auto theft club near the corner of Waverly and Flushing avenues on April 13.

According to police, the attacker hurled a bottle at the 27-year-old victim’s car at around 4:30 am. When the car owner asked the hooligan why she did it, the villain suddenly discovered an alternate use for the club, striking the victim in her head.

Police arrested a 22-year-old and charged her with assault.

This guy should be ashamed of himself. The neighborhood should bring this guy to justice. If you want the area to become good, then speak up! Say something!
