60th Precinct

Coney Island—Brighton Beach—Seagate

Bloody test

A baddie slashed a man while trying to rob him on the D train at Stillwell Avenue on Dec. 31.

The victim told cops that while he was on the train near the Bay 50th Street station at 10:40 pm, the lout stood over him and demanded his wallet, while holding a knife.

He refused, and the brute slashed him on the left side of the forehead, according to police.

The victim then restrained the good-for-nothing, who slashed him again on the top of his left hand, cops said.

The brute then said “you passed the test,” and fled the subway, cops said.

Chokehold robbery

A dirtbag put a woman in a chokehold and violently robbed her at a subway station on W. Eighth Street on Jan. 2.

The victim told cops she was getting off the F train at Surf Avenue at 12:30 pm when the reprobate, dressed all in black, came up from behind, put her in a chokehold, took her down to the ground, and punched her in the face and neck.

He then took her cellphone and fled in an unknown direction, according to cops.

Purse snatcher

A punk snatched a woman’s bag on Brighton Beach Avenue on Jan. 5.

The victim told cops that she was near Brighton Fifth Street at 8:40 am waiting for a bank to open when the baddie grabbed her purse and hit her hand to force her to drop the bag, which he grabbed and fled with towards Ocean View Avenue.
