Police arrested a 23-year-old woman who they say broke into another woman’s 77th Street apartment — just so she could ruin her victim’s clothes.
The victim told police that the suspect, who she knows, called her and said that she had crept into her apartment near 16th Avenue through a fire escape window sometime after 6:30 pm and “left a surprise” for her.
When the victim returned home, she found a bunch of her clothes in her tub — doused in water and bleach.
Detectives from the 62nd Precinct arrested a man who they say struck another man with a machete on 69th Street on Nov. 14 — nearly killing him.
Witnesses to the attack, which took place near 17th Avenue, said the two men were arguing at about 7:15 pm when the suspect swung the machete at his victim’s upper body, burying the weapon deep into the victim’s forearm.
The victim was rushed to an area hospital for treatment as his assailant ran off — only to be arrested this week and charged with attempted murder.
Cops nabbed two men who they claim tried to knock over an Associates Supermarket on 20th Avenue on Nov. 21.
Workers at the grocery store near 78th Street said that the thieves barreled in at 8:27 am with one of the men carrying both a small baseball bat and a large knife.
“I will kill you, give me all your money,” the armed thief, age 29, allegedly screamed. “Give me all your stuff.”
His accomplice, a 24-year-old man, was unarmed, but found a weapon pretty quickly: he pulled a beer can from his partner’s satchel and threatened to throw it at store employees.
After a few tense moments, the thieves ran off empty-handed — only to be apprehended by police a short time later.
