Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate
A 50-year-old man was arrested beating another man with a crowbar and then choking him on Ocean Parkway on Dec. 14.
The victim told police that he was between Neptune and Oceanview avenues at 7:20 am when the suspect began pummeling him with the steel item, bashing his face and limbs.
The suspect then allegedly pinned the victim to a wall with the crowbar — against the victim’s neck.
Fists of fury
Police arrested an 18-year-old man who they say pummeled a woman on E. 16th Street on Aug. 21.
The victim told police that she was between Neptune and Mermaid avenues at 2:30 pm when the suspect began striking her repeatedly upon the head with his fists.
Pint-sized purse snatcher
A 14-year-old boy was arrested for stealing a woman’s purse and then slapping her in the face — twice — on Avenue V on Dec. 10.
The victim told police that she was between Stillwell Avenue and W. 13th Street at 9:40 pm when the suspect grabbed onto her purse and attempted to yank the bag from her arm.
The quick-handed victim was able to snatch a handle before the suspect could flee, however, so the young boy slapped her twice in the face before making his escape, cops said.
Police arrested a 27-year-old woman who they say punched a man in the face on Oceanview Avenue on Dec. 9.
The victim told police that she was between Brighton Sixth and Brighton Seventh streets at 6:45 pm when the suspect slugged him in the kisser.
