Brutes hit man with bottle and break window over parking spot

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Road rage

Two maniacs smashed a bottle over a man’s head and shattered a window of his fire department-owned vehicle over a parking spot on 73rd Street on March 25, according to a police report.

The two men had their livery car parked between Fifth and Sixth avenues around 6:45 pm when the fire department employee told them he needed them to move their vehicle. They refused, and the argument turned violent when one of the hotheads hopped out of the car and hit the victim across the head with a bottle, leaving him with a six-inch gash across his forehead, according to a police report.

If that was not enough, the second brute hopped out of the car brandishing a tire iron, and smashed the back window of the official fire department car. The men fled in their car towards Fourth Avenue, but cops say they have one of their cellphones they dropped in the chaos.

Bike bandit

A two-bit thief stole a guy’s two-wheeled ride on Shore Road on the afternoon of March 27, police said.

The guy was biking near 80th Street when the thief came up to him brandishing a knife at least five inches long, demanding his wheels. The biker complied and the thief pedaled away.

Watch your watch

A thief looted an unlocked car on Bay Ridge Avenue on March 21, police said.

The driver parked her car near Ninth Avenue at 4:30 pm and returned the next morning to find her iPad, some baby toys, her backpack, and her Rolex watch missing, according to a police report.


An oaf trying to rob a 95th Street apartment on March 21 gave himself away when he knocked into a set of kitchen pans and set the owner on his trail.

The burglar made his way into the apartment between Fourth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway through a ground-floor kitchen window while the owner was in the living room, police said.

But he knocked around some cooking pans, prompting the woman to investigate. She caught the lummox red-handed and screamed, police said. That sent him right back out the window empty-handed.
