Bad bite

A violent villain struck a woman in the head with a hairbrush and bit her hand on Bushwick Avenue on June 16, cops said.

The 24-year-old victim told police she got into an argument with the 18-year-old assailant near Montrose Avenue at 2 am. That’s when the thug struck her head and face with a wooden brush handle and then bit her hand.

Cops arrested two suspects.

Pool party

A thug smacked a pool stick over a man’s head inside a Manhattan Avenue bodega on June 11.

The victim told police he was in the bodega between McKibbin and Boerum streets at 2:50 pm when he got into an argument with the jerk over a pool game. During the tiff, the fiend struck the man’s head with his stick.

The brute fled down Boerum Street and emergency workers took the victim to Woodhull Hospital.
