A 35-year-old man was arrested on Nov. 25 after he struck another man with a cane on E. 17th Street, cops said.
The victim told police that he was sitting in a car — with his window rolled down — at 6 pm when the suspect approached, lunged with his cane, and then ran into a building between Caton and Church avenues.
Cops caught up with the alleged brute a short time later, charging him with assault in the second degree.

But the woman gave pursuit and called police, who arrested the teens a short time later.
