Police: Man scares off would-be robbers

63rd Precinct

Marine Park—Mill Basin—Flatlands—Bergen Beach

Skittish suspects

Police arrested a 20-year-old woman who they say attempted to rob an E. 61st Street house on June 22.

The victim told police that he was inside his home between Avenues T and U at noon, when he heard the doorbell ring several times. Without answering the door, the victim went to a nearby window, where he saw the suspect walk down the front steps of the porch, cross the driveway, and head into the backyard, where she met another man. The other man then proceeded to stand on the vicitm’s motorcycle and peer through a back window, police said.

It wasn’t hard for the victim to scare off the would-be burglars, however, as he simply lifted the window shade and banged on the glass until they fled.

Underaged beatdown

Three teenagers — ages 16, 17, and 18 — were arrested for beating up a man on Flatbush Avenue on June 21.

The victim told police that he was near Avenue U at 9:15 pm when the suspects surrounded him and attacked.

He ended up in a nearby hospital suffering from a fractured nose and numerous lacerations on his face.

Flatbush fiasco

A 33-year-old man was found driving drunk on Shore Parkway on June 24, police said.

The arresting officer was near Flatbush Avenue at 4:50 am when he noticed the suspect swerving through lanes. The officer pulled the man over to find him clearly intoxicated with slurred speech, watery eyes, and a tell-tale alcoholic odor, cops said.

After conducting a Breathalyzer test, the officer found the suspect’s blood alcohol content to be .109 percent, according to police.
