Taking one to the face
A 45-year-old man was arrested at a bar on Bedford Avenue during the early hours on May 5 for assaulting the bartender, according to police.
The victim said she tried to make the man leave the bar between Albemarle Road and Tilden Avenue at last call at 4:40 am when he picked up a blender and chucked it at her.
The man’s aim was true, and the kitchen appliance knocked out two of her teeth when it hit her in the face.
Two for one

A security officer at the retailer between Avenues H and I said he saw the man place the camera in his pocket and try to leave the store at 5:05 pm. The guard recovered the camera, however, 40 minutes later, he said he saw the suspect with a prescription pill bottle with methadone inside, police reported.
The man faces larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and controlled substance charges.
Shouldn’t have dropped your hat
