The victim said he and another motorist got into a fender-bender at the intersection of 16th Avenue at 8:45 pm, and an argument between the two broke out.

An internet swindler scammed a 22-year-old 65th Street woman out of thousands with the promise of a job on Feb. 8, cops said.
The victim said she applied for a position listed on the website Craigslist from her home on between 15th and 16th avenues and got a call from the schemer that she had gotten the job. The con man sent her two checks for $6,291.87, and told her to deposit them in her personal account and write and deliver checks to three of his vendors, she said.
The victim complied, and signed three checks totalling $4,799.10 and personally gave them to the supposed employees — only to get a call at 2 pm on Feb. 8 from a bank stating that the checks she had received were fraudulent and she was out the four grand in dough, police reported.
