Ruffians assault man with glass bottle


Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Bottle brutes

Three louts roughed up a man on New Utrecht Avenue with a glass bottle on Sept. 12.

The victim told police that the assailants approached him while he was walking home on the corner of 76th Street at 5 am and began smacking him with a glass bottle, punching him, and kicking him in the head. 

Police found him coming in and out of consciousness with bulging swelling around his eye and head, authorities said.

What a tool!

A good-for-nothing nabbed $5,000 worth of construction tools from a 24th Avenue car on Sept. 10. 

An employee at the air conditioning company told police that the burglar broke into his commercial truck parked by Bay 37th Street at around midnight and stole the tools before he returned to the vehicle at 6 am that morning.

Knife knaves

Cops cuffed a trio of robbers for allegedly slashing a man and stealing his friend’s money in Lt. Joseph Petrosino Playground on Sept. 12.

The three victims told cops that the robbers took $110 out of one victim’s pocket and another victim’s iPhone before getting into an argument with the third victim, whom one of the brutes slashed in the back, authorities said. The attackers then dropped the knife and ran out of the playground on 70th Street and New Utrecht Avenue at 12:45 am, police said.
