Cut up

An evildoer was arrested for slashing a woman at a Fulton Street beauty salon on March 28, cops claim.

Witnesses said two women started arguing inside of the store between Hanover Place and Flatbush Avenue Extension at 5 pm. One of them allegedly picked up a pair of scissors and slashed her rival’s hand.

Police later arrested a woman who they said was responsible for the stabbing.

Mugger foiled

A would-be crook tried to rob a woman on Remsen Street on March 25, but fled after she screamed for help.

The victim told police she was near Henry Street at 9:25 pm when the thief grabbed her purse. She yelled, and the terrified crook ran off.

Wheely bad

Crooks swiped four rims from a Honda parked on Middagh Street on April 1.

A witness told police she saw two men approach the car near Hicks Street at 4:30 am, steal the rims, and flee four minutes later.

Nice guys

Self-described “good” robbers jumped a man on Bergen Street on March 30, but agreed to let him keep his cellphone before running away.

The victim told cops he was between Bond and Nevins streets at 10:20 pm when two thugs stopped him and one demanded, “Give me all your money, your cellphone, and empty your pockets.”

The man handed over a dollar and his iPod, but pleaded with the crooks to let him keep his phone.

One of the thieves agreed, saying, “We are good robbers.”

Then the crook extended his hand but the man said he refused to shake it and the robbers fled.

Metro mess

A teenager beat up a security guard who tried to break up a fight in MetroTech Center on March 29.

The security guard said he separated a group of teens who were fighting near Willoughby Street at 8:45 am.

That’s when one of the combatants struck the guard in the face with a lock. The security officer was treated for a swollen eye at Brooklyn Hospital.

The incident did not result in any arrests.

Car break-in

A thief stole electronics from a car parked on Fulton Street on March 29.

Van plan

A crook stole construction equipment from a van on Front Street on March 27.

The van’s owner said he parked the vehicle between Gold and Bridge streets at 1:47 pm. When he returned at 2 pm, the van’s back door was broken and a saw and hammer were gone.
