Panhandler beats man in subway

84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Begging for a fight

Police arrested a man they suspect of beating up a guy at the Atlantic Avenue Barclays Center subway station on July 15.

The victim told police the man demanded money from him, and — after he refused — punched him in the face just before 2 p.m.

Police seized the suspect on the spot and slapped him with felony robbery charges.

Knifepoint robbery

A knife-wielding wacko robbed a teen on Flatbush Avenue Ext. on July 17.

The victim, 15, told police he was near Myrtle Avenue when the malefactor pulled a knife on him, snarling, “whatcha got in your pockets?” The crook snatched $15 from the kid, before fleeing towards Myrtle Avenue at 12:20 p.m.

Uncivil discourse

Two louts robbed a man on Fourth Avenue on July 18.

The victim told police he was arguing with several men near Warren Street at 1:15 a.m., when one of the nogoodniks demanded his wallet.

The victim threw it onto the street, and one of the crooks picked it up and fled the scene, cops said.

Choking incident

A man choked his girlfriend on Furman Street on July 20.

The victim told police she was arguing with her beau near Montague Street at 11:10 p.m., when he choked her and slammed her into a metal fence before snatching a chain from her neck.

It’s a rental!

A crook stole a man’s rental car on Smith Street on July 21.

The victim told police that he left the car outside a bakery unlocked — keys in the ignition and the engine running — between Dean and Bergen streets at 12:23 a.m.

He told police he believes that some villains holding a Dominos Pizza box across the street at the time nabbed the car and bolted.
