Christmas Eve cutting
A young woman was arrested on Dec. 24 after she stabbed a male friend inside an E. 83rd Street apartment.
The couple was arguing inside the apartment, which is between Glenwood Road and Flatlands Avenue, at 9:15 am when the woman grabbed a knife and threatened to kill her companion.
As the bloody clash progressed, the woman slashed the man’s neck and stabbed him in the hand and leg, the victim told police.
Cops charged the woman with assault as the man was rushed to an area hospital for treatment.
A man was arrested on drunken driving charges on Dec. 24, following a car accident on E. 96th Street.
Witnesses said that the man’s 2001 Chevrolet Tracker slammed into another car at 8:10 pm near Flatlands Avenue.
When cops arrived, the apparently drunken motorist — he actually needed help standing up — said he was on his way to pick up his father in-law, even though an open case of beer was found next to him.
No Xmas cheer
A Rockaway Parkway resident was arrested on Dec. 18 for poor judgment: He decided to celebrate the holidays with pot and beer.
Police were patrolling the man’s Bayview Houses apartment building, which is between Shore Parkway and Seaview Avenue, at 7:38 pm when they smelled marijuana and saw the suspect and several others partying in the hallway.
Cops charged the men, but only apprehended the suspect, who wouldn’t identify any of his friends. He also admitted to having the marijuana, even though it wasn’t found on him, police said.
Four thieves converged on a Ralph Avenue cellphone store on Dec. 16 — taking an assortment of pricey communication devices.
The criminal quartet entered the store, which is between Avenues K and L, at 6:30 pm and immediately began emptying display cases, employees told police.
Rifling through clothes
A man with a rifle burst into a Flatlands Avenue laundromat on Dec. 13, robbing the place of $500.
