Police: Man punches woman’s tooth out

76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Evil tooth fairy

A fiend knocked a woman’s tooth out when he punched her in the face on Bond Street on Oct. 1.

The 24-year-old victim told authorities she and the malefactor — whom she knows — were engaged in a verbal argument on Baltic and Warren streets at 4:35 am when the miscreant socked her in the face, causing her tooth to fall out.

The woman also dropped her phone after the punch, causing its screen to crack, police said.

Emergency responders later took the woman to New York Methodist Hospital, officials said.


A jerk kicked and punched a guy on Hoyt Street on Oct. 1, police said.

The victim told cops he and the nogoodnik — someone he knows — got into an argument between Baltic and Douglass streets at 11:30 pm when the dirtbag started punching and kicking him in his chest and head.

Emergency responders took the victim to New York Methodist Hospital for treatment, according to authorities.

Pay up

A good-for-nothing hopped out of a yellow cab without paying his fare on the corner of Smith and Ninth streets on Sept. 29.

The driver told authorities his passenger jumped out at around 6 pm without coughing up the $6 he owed for his ride.

Minutes later

A weasel swiped a guy’s bag after the owner accidentally left it in a Court Street eatery on Sept. 30, police said.

The guy left his bag in the restaurant between Pacific Street and Atlantic Avenue at 6:30 pm, and when he walked back in to get it 10 minutes later, it was gone, according to authorities.

The sack contained a work identification card, Chase credit card, and a driver’s license, police said.

Deadly find

Cops arrested a 41-year-old guy for allegedly having an arsenal of weapons in his home on Henry Street on Sept. 28.

The police recovered the cache — which included multiple rounds of ammunition, high-capacity magazines, and a BB gun — from the suspect’s home between Degraw and Sackett streets at 5:44 pm, according to authorities.
