B44 beat down

B 44 bash

A 19-year-old was arrested on Feb. 10 after he attacked a younger teen on a B 44 bus on Kings Highway.

The 14-year-old victim was sitting on the bus, which was near Nostrand Avenue, at 4 pm when the thug attacked, leaving him with bruises to the face and eye.

Crossing catastrophe

A hit-and-run driver struck a crossing guard on Avenue S on Feb. 11, leaving the woman with a broken leg.

The 41-year-old victim was monitoring the children at the intersection of Ocean Avenue at 8:30 am when a grey Pontiac clipped her.

It was first believed that it was Sheepshead Bay serial killer Maksim Gelman who hit the woman during his Friday rampage, but he was never charged with the crime when he was arrested.

Booze and buses

A 52-year-old bus driver was arrested on Feb. 13 after he crashed a yellow school bus on E. Ninth Street — while drunk.

Police said that no one was on the bus at the time of the 5:50 pm crash near Avenue U.

Wireless whisk

Thieves raided the Wireless Dot Com store on Avenue U on Feb. 13, taking 25 cellphones valued at more than $6,000.

Workers at the store, which is near E. 28th Street, said that someone cut the locks to the roll down gates at 5:25 am and smashed the front glass window in order to get inside.

Left slashed

Two thugs jumped a 16-year-old on Avenue U on Feb. 11, leaving the teen hospitalized.

The teen said that he and his friend were nearing W. Eighth Street at 7:40 pm when the two thieves approached him with a knife.

Puppy predators

Three thieves raided an Avenue N home on Feb. 1, taking cash, cellphones, electronics — and a small puppy.

Residents inside the Midwood home said the thieves knocked on their door at 11 pm. When one of the victims answered, the thieves forced their way inside, holding five people at bay as they looted the place, scooping up the $1,500 puppy before leaving.

Skylight entry

Thieves broke into the Deep Mountain liquor store on Kings Highway on Feb. 5 after forcing open a rooftop skylight.

Workers at the store, which is between McDonald Avenue and E. 2nd Street, said the thief lowered himself into a vacant stairwell at 5:50 am and then kicked a hole into the store, where $3,520 was removed from the register.

Not so charitable

A thief swiped two charity boxes from David’s Health Foods on Avenue U on Feb. 4.

Workers at the store, which is between E. 22nd and E. 23rd streets, said the goon entered at 10:18 am, palmed the boxes and ran off before anyone noticed what was going on.
