Hole in the donut store

A prowler broke into a donut shop on McGuinness Boulevard and store more than $2,000 out of the cash registers sometime overnight on March 29, according to a report

The manager of the store between Freeman and Eagle streets said she came to work at 4:50 am on March 30 to find two of the registers wide open and the money missing. She walked into the back and found the file cabinet broken into and the money also missing from there, cops said.

Night time is the wrong time

A scoundrel broke into a woman’s Manhattan Avenue clothing store and stole more than $1,200 in merchandise sometime overnight on March 27, authorities reported.

The victim said the break-in between Java and India streets happened sometime from 7:30 pm on March 27 to 9 am the next day.

Trashed

A bully beat a man with a garbage-can lid at a Skillman Avenue shelter on April 2 — because someone else told him to turn his music down, according to cops.

The 67-year-old victim reported he was lying in his bed at the shelter between Woodpoint Road and Kingsland Avenue at 6:25 am when a fellow boarder told the goon in the bathroom to turn down his music.

The 39-year-old bully roared out of the bathroom, grabbed the implement, and beat him. The victim reached for a paint roller to defend himself and got socked in the stomach for his trouble, police reported.

Brutal

Cops cuffed a 41-year-old man who they say beat a woman and banged her head against the floor of a Richardson Street apartment on March 30.

The 37-year-old victim told police that she was arguing with the man in the abode between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street at 10:10 pm when he suddenly started to strangle her and banged her head against the floor repeatedly.

The woman suffered cuts and bruises to her neck and face, police reported. Emergency services arrived and treated her on the scene, according to authorities. Police charged the man with assault.
