63rd Precinct

Marine Park—Mill Basin—Flatlands—Bergen Beach

What a drag

Police say a 33-year-old man caused another man to crash his car — after he challenged him to a drag race on Utica Avenue on May 27.

The victim told police that he was driving along near Avenue L at around 3:20 am when the suspect, driving a 2007 Grand Cherokee, pulled up alongside him and challenged him to a drag race.

The victim refused, but the suspect allegedly kept pace beside the victim as he drove to his destination, eventually causing him to collide with another vehicle, cops said.

Crackin’ heads

A 48-year-old woman was arrested for attacking man with a baseball bat on E. 70th Street early on May 26.

The victim told police that he was between Avenues N and T at around 7 am when the suspect told him, “I feel like cracking you in the head,” and then smacked him several times with a baseball bat.

Brothers in crime

The victim told police that she was between Avenue P and Nostrand Avenue at around 9 am when the brothers nabbed her pricey laptop, as well as $1,000 worth of silver jewelry.
