72nd Precinct

Sunset Park–Windsor Terrace

Stunning arrest

Police arrested a suspect for allegedly stealing a motorcycle on Fourth Avenue after blasting him with a stun gun on Aug. 30.

A bystander told cops that a suspicious looking man allegedly took the motorbike near the intersection of 60th Street and drove off at around 5 p.m., before crashing into a nearby fence.

Police tracked down the man with the stolen bike and teased him as he attempted to flee the scene. He was arrested on felony grand larceny auto charges, according to police reports.

Postal perp

A fraudster stole a check from a Fort Hamilton Parkway mailbox sometime between Aug. 21 and Aug. 23.

The victim told police that she put the check in the mailbox near the intersection of E. Second Street at around 8 p.m. on a Wednesday, and the crook cashed his ill-gotten check into their own account two days later.

Tool time

Cops cuffed a man for allegedly stealing from a 19th Street hardware store on Aug. 29.

A store employee told police that the suspect entered the store near Third Avenue before allegedly grabbing $1,219 worth of goods and attempting to flee at around 3 p.m.

Police arrived on the scene and arrested the man on felony grand larceny charges.

Chance of pain

Police booked a suspect for allegedly assaulting a man with a windshield wiper blade on 63rd Street on Aug. 26.

The victim told police that he was arguing with another man between Fifth and Sixth avenues at around 8 p.m., when the guy hurled the wiper at him, leaving him with a modest gash on his arm.

Police arrived on the scene and arrested the suspect on felony assault charges, according to police reports.

Subway swiper

A thief ripped off a sleeping subway rider at the 25th Street station on Aug. 27.

The victim told police that she boarded the Brooklyn-bound N train at Time Square and fell asleep at around 7:30 p.m. When she awoke in the Brooklyn station near Fourth Avenue, she realized her luggage was missing.

Bad check

A swindler stole $4,999 using a checkbook they found on Third Avenue on Aug 24.

The victim told police that she lost the checkbook between 45th and 46th streets at around 1 p.m., and the fraudster picked it up and wrote multiple fraudulent checks over the next several days.

Chain robbery

Three brutes robbed an drunken man on 51st Street on Sept. 2.

The victim told police that he was walking near the intersection of Fifth Avenue at around 12:30 a.m., when one of the perps punched him in the face, before grabbing his gold chain and running off.

Breaking and entering

Police arrested a man for allegedly breaking into his 52nd Street landlord’s apartment on Sept. 1.

The victim told police that the suspect knocked on his door between Third and Fourth avenue repeatedly to no avail at around 4 p.m., before allegedly violently kicking in the door — causing $250 in damage.

Police arrived on the scene and arrested the man on felony criminal mischief charges, according to police reports.
