Police: Knife-wielding man threatens guy for not supporting Trump

78th Precinct

Park Slope

He’s great, just fantastic

Cops arrested a man who they say pulled a knife on another guy for refusing to pledge allegiance to President Trump on Seventh Avenue on Feb. 6

The victim told police he was between Union and President streets at 5:15 pm when the suspect approached and asked if he supported the Commander in Chief and former “The Apprentice” star.

But when the man explained that he was no fan of the Don, the suspect responded by screaming “f— you,” and pulled a knife on the victim, according to police.

The victim quickly dial 911, and the suspect fled rather than face police, but officers managed to catch up with him later that day and cuff him on menacing charges, cops said.

Bin burglar

A thief stole a Prospect Place resident’s brown compost pail from outside his home on Feb. 6.

The thief swiped the 70-year-old man’s city-issued brown bin, which costs $50 and is rodent proof to permit storage of compost, from outside his home between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 10:30 am.

Fight night

Investigators tracked down a man accused of slashing two guys inside an Atlantic Avenue arena’s management office on Feb. 2.

The suspect allegedly slugged one of the victims in the face following an argument inside the arena near Flatbush Avenue at 6:05 am, before snatching a pair of scissors and splitting open the guy’s cheek, according to police.

That’s when the second victim moved in to breakup the bloody brawl, causing the scissor-wielding suspect to scratch him on the forehead and on his left hand, cops said.

Police department sleuths tracked down the suspect two days later and charged him with felony assault, according to police.
