78th Precinct

Park Slope

Blade-wielding aggressor

Police arrested a 26-year-old who they say attacked and threatened a woman with a box-cutter inside a Fifth Avenue sports bar on Aug. 31.

“I will cut you,” said the accused to the victim inside the watering hole between St. Johns Place and Sterling Place at 3 am, investigators say.

The suspect then allegedly pulled out a box-cutter and grabbed the victim by the hair. The accused lunged toward the victim with the box-cutter — leaving her with wounds to the wrist and abdomen that required stitches.

The suspect faces charges of assault, menacing, and criminal possession, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.

Disloyal employee

Cops cuffed a 27-year-old accused of stealing more than $1,000 from an Atlantic Avenue basketball shop where he worked between April 6 and Aug. 17.

The manager at the store near Flatbush Avenue told investigators that the employee used his access account to get into the cash register and pocket several sums of cash on different occasions between April and August.

The suspect faces charges of grand larceny, petit larceny, and falsifying business records.
