Cops cuffed a man who they say banged up a man’s bicycle and then threatened him with a bat on Harrison Place on Oct. 17.
The victim told investigators he was between Varick and Porter avenues at 12:30 pm when the suspect rammed a shopping cart into his two-wheeler and knocked it to the ground.
When the victim tried pushing the shopping cart away, the perp — who faces charges of menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, attempted criminal mischief, and harassment — whipped out a bat and said “you touch my s— again and I’ll beat you,” according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
Got the munchies
A man was arrested for stealing an assortment of snacks from a Broadway deli on Oct. 22, authorities said.
The manager of the store near Flushing Avenue told investigators that the suspect waltzed into the establishment at 3:35 am and pocketed two bags of chips, one bag of Chex Mix, one box of blueberry muffins, a bag of hard candy, and a bag of cashews, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
The perp faces charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
Caught on camera
Cops cuffed a woman who they say looted two video surveillance cameras from a S. First Street residence on Oct. 21.
A video surveillance tape captured the suspect unscrewing the two cameras off the wall of the property between Roebling Street and Driggs Avenue, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
The perp — who faces charges of criminal mischief, petit larceny, and criminal possession of stolen property — confessed that the video cameras are in her apartment, investigators said.
