Brute socks drunk man in the face

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Punch drunk

Some goon assaulted a drunk man on Flatbush Avenue near Dean Street on Dec. 17.

The victim told police he’d been arguing with the brute that night, when the man socked him once in the face.

Emergency workers took the victim to New York Methodist Hospital following the assault, according to police, who noted that he was intoxicated.

Hostile work environment

A former employee of a Fifth Avenue diner threatened his one-time boss on Dec. 12.

The victim told police that the disgruntled worker stormed into the eatery between Ninth and 10th streets at 8:45 pm and said he’d get hurt if he didn’t fork up some dough the man claims he was owed.

Police referred the victim to criminal court to obtain an order of protection, and have closed the case, cops said.

Cat nap

Police arrested a man on Dec. 13 because he took too long feeding his cat at the Flatbush Avenue building where he had been evicted.

A landlord told police the suspect was evicted from his building between Dean and Bergen streets, but that he’s still allowed to come back for an hour at a time to feed his cat.

When the suspect showed up at around 1:35 pm, however, he refused to leave after the allotted hour, so the landlord called the cops, who came and took the man away, according to police.

Rides away

Carjackers descended upon Park Slope in a thieving frenzy that left three vehicle owners without rides earlier this month. Here’s the rundown:

• A thief nabbed an 85-year-old man’s 1998 Honda Accord he left parked on Bergen Street between Fifth and Flatbush avenues from Dec. 4 to 10.

• Some crook rode off with a man’s 2018 Yamaha motorcycle he left on Lincoln Place between Fifth and Sixth avenues from Dec. 7 to 13.

• Another bike thief stole a man’s 2009 BMW he left on Eighth Avenue between First and Second streets at around midnight on Dec. 12. The victim was gone for a little more than two hours, and returned to find an empty spot where his bike had been, cops said.
