76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook


An old guy was buying tea and a bagel at a grocery store on Hicks Street on Jan. 3 when a jerk bashed him in the face, police said.

A goon wearing black jeans and a black face-mask hit the 61-year-old in the face and slammed a door on his foot at the shop between Luquer and Nelson streets around 3:30 pm, police reported. The victim said he did not know his attacker, cops said.

Cell sour

Cops cuffed a guy for hitting a man in the foot with a cellphone at an apartment complex on Baltic Street on Jan. 6, police said.

The 18-year-old attacker threw the mobile phone at the man’s left foot at the apartment complex between Hoyt and Bond streets and was arrested around 11:23 pm, police said. The suspect refused to be handcuffed as he was being arrested, said cops, who are charging him with assault.

Skate crime

A meanie broke into a man’s parked car on President Street sometime between Jan. 4 and Jan. 6 and made off with a pair of ice skates and some electronics, cops said.

The 42-year-old victim parked his green Range Rover between Columbia and Hicks streets on Jan. 4 at 5 pm and, when he returned on Jan. 6 at 11:30 am, he noticed his car window was broken, police reported. His iPad, iPod mini, and skates were nowhere to be found, according to cops.

Knife to meet you

Police arrested a guy after pulling him over for running a stop sign on Baltic Street on Jan. 2 and seeing he was carrying a knife, they said.

Officers stopped the 48-year-old man in his Ford Explorer near Nevins Street at 1:40 pm, noticed he had the weapon, and cuffed him for weapon possession and failing to stop.
