Three on two

Three suspects were arrested last week after they allegedly robbed two younger teens in East Flatbush.

The victims said that they were on East 43rd Street near Church Avenue just before 3:30 p.m. on February 12 when they found themselves surrounded by 21-year-old Brian Charles and Jahlani Theodore and Kareem Duncan, both 20.

The suspects allegedly threw the victims against a fence. After flashing a knife and a crowbar, the suspects demanded the victims’ property, police alleged.

“Give me your sh-t…I’m going to beat your face in,” one of the thieves threatened as they struggled with the two victims.

Despite being outnumbered and out-armed, the two victims opted to fight off the thieves, who ran off a short time later.

All three were arrested shortly after the failed heist and were charged with attempted robbery.

Fiendish Fry-guy

A 53-year-old neighborhood McDonald’s patron was arrested last week during a beef with the franchise manager.

Cops from the 70th Precinct were told that Raymond Spain had an earlier argument with the manager, but ended up causing quite a stir when he visited the Nostrand Avenue eatery near Foster Avenue at 8 p.m. on February 15.

Witnesses told police that Spain allegedly began cursing at the manager when he was asked to leave.

When the manager tried to escort him out, Spain whirled around and punched the man in the face, leaving him with a bruised eye and cheek, police alleged.

Cops took Spain into custody, charging him with assault in the third degree, menacing and disorderly conduct.

Dog day afternoon

Arrests are expected to be handed down in the now infamous Salty Dog brawl where a group of local firefighters allegedly brutalized a group of revelers over a spilled drink.

Sources said that the city’s Department of Investigation was expected to release their findings within the next few days about the fight, which was reportedly caught on video.

Four men were at the bar, located at 7509 Third Avenue, back on January 29 when one of them knocked into a firefighter, spilling his drink.

That’s when, according to published reports, a dozen firefighters jumped the quartet, dragging one of the men into a bathroom where he was viciously beaten.

Some of the firefighters involved were members of Engine Company 310 in East Flatbush. All of the active firefighters were off duty at the time of the incident.

Officials said that the victims initially did not want to press charges, but soon changed their mind after hiring lawyer Joe Tacopina.

Tacopina told reporters that he and his clients are waiting for the outcome of the investigation before deciding if they should sue the FDNY.

Targeted by hate monger

Cops are investigating a local man’s claims that he has been targeted by an anti-Semite.

The 57-year-old victim told police that the suspect, who has not been identified, has thrown eggs at his home near the corner of Albemarle and Marlborough roads on three separate occasions.

Then during last weekend’s snow storm the same fiend wrote the words “God Hates Jews” in the snow.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward.

Found dead on McDonald Ave.

The city’s Medical Examiner’s office is hoping to determine what killed a 50-year-old homeless man found on McDonald Avenue.

Police said that the unnamed victim was discovered unconscious near Avenue I just after 2:15 a.m. on February 8.

He died at the scene as paramedics tried to render aid.

An autopsy was scheduled to be performed as this paper went to press.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to come forward.

Help wipe out graffiti

As the ongoing war against graffiti vandalism continues, cops are now offering a $500 reward to anyone with information that can lead them to graffiti vandals.

The hefty reward is part of the city’s new push to rid New York of graffiti, which is one of the leading quality of life complaints brought to police.

Officials said that cleaning up graffiti is essential to the plan, to show that the community is no longer going to tolerate marred and tagged-up walls and street corners.

According to police, there is a perception that if a community will tolerate graffiti, they will tolerate other criminal activities, such as drug dealing and prostitution.

Anyone with information about graffiti vandalism in their neighborhood is urged to contact either 311 or 911.
