The victim told police that she was sitting in her car between Gates and Putnam avenues at 4:45 pm, when the suspect allegedly pulled out his genitals, opened the passenger side door and took her phone, before making a run for it.

Gun violence

Some brute beat a youngster to a pulp with a gun and stole his cellphone on N. Oxford Walk on May 23.

The 18-year-old victim told police that the villain hit him in the face with a handgun between N. Portland and Carlton avenues at midnight, before hitting him several more times and taking his phone.

Bad brother

The woman and the man were arguing, when she allegedly hit him in the neck with a brick.

The suspects told police that the female allegedly hit the man in the neck with a brick between Grand and Classon avenues at 3:50 pm, when the uncle allegedly went to his car and got mace and a stick — and used them to attack another man who tried to intervene in the family dispute.

Unneighborly

The victim told police that the suspect allegedly lunged at her and punched her in the face between N.

Police arrived at the scene around 1:10 am and arrested the neighbor on felony assault charges, according to police reports. 

Macho meanie

Some bruiser attacked a woman on Fleet Walk on May 23.

An employee told police that the thirsty pirate broke into the deli near Cumberland Street at around 4 am and sipped from a bottle, before breaking the glass container and exiting empty handed — leaving behind a flashlight and a small bottle of liquor.

Scumbag scammers

Two charlatans swindled a woman out of almost $20,000 on S. Oxford Street on May 21.

The victim told police that the shysters told her they were from the Legal Aid Society between Lafayette and Dekalb avenues at noon and asked her to give them $19,600 to bail her son out of jail — which she did, before realizing it was a scam.
