Determined thief busts up rail guard to steal bike

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Off the rail

A determined thief broke through a rail-guard to steal a woman’s bike on Dean Street on Nov. 7.

The victim told police she used a heavy-duty Kryptonite lock to secure her bicycle to the rail-guarding surrounding a tree between Caton and Vanderbilt avenues at 1:30 pm, but returned a few hours later to discover the railing she’d tethered her ride to was busted and her bike stolen.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, cops said.

Mr. Knife Guy

Cops cuffed a man who allegedly slashed another guy with a knife on 13th Street on Nov. 6.

The victim told police the suspect attacked him between Hamilton Place and Second Avenue at 8:10 am, opening up severe gashes on his right thumb and left leg.

Paramedics rushed the man to Cobble Hill Hospital for treatment, while a police nabbed the suspect following a search of the area, charging him with felony assault, cops said.

Bike bandit

An opportunistic crook rode off with a man’s bicycle he left unsecured outside a Butler Street building on Nov. 7.

The victim told police he left his two-wheeler outside the property between Third and Fourth avenues at 12:05 pm, and returned five minutes later, just in time to witness a man wearing a green military cap and black coat ride off with his Huffy bicycle.

What the cell!

A shoplifter absconded with phone cases and a power bank from a Seventh Avenue cellphone store on Nov. 1.

An employee told police he spotted the suspect make off with the phone paraphernalia from the store between Carroll Street and Garfield Place at 2:30 pm.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, cops said.
