Police: Stick-wielding suspect belted woman

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Sound off

Police slapped irons on a woman for allegedly attacking a 55-year-old lady as she listened to music at Grand Army Plaza on July 23.

The victim told police she was kicking back and enjoying some tunes at the plaza near Flatbush Avenue at 11:50 pm when the 45-year-old suspect charged and whacked her with a stick.

The victim’s alleged assailant struck her twice, once on the arm and again on her head, where she opened a nasty gash, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s bicycle after he parked it along Eighth Avenue on July 16.

The victim left his bike between Third and Fourth streets at 6:15 am, and returned two days later to find some crook had nabbed it, cops said.

Well-heeled crooks

A shoplifter ripped off a Fifth Avenue shoe store on July 20.

The bandit strolled into the business between 10th and 11th streets at 5:30 pm, took four pairs of sneakers, and skipped past the register on his way out, authorities said.

Making her bed

Police arrested a woman for stealing bed sheets and luggage from a Flatbush Avenue chain store on July 24.

An employee told cops the suspect was spotted grabbing two sheets and a Swiss travel bag from the store between Atlantic Avenue and Hanson Place at 11:54 am, when she attempted to flee without shilling out $430 to pay for her ill-gotten goods.

Smash cab

Some jerk smashed up a man’s taxi on Seventh Street on July 24.

The cabbie told police he parked his ride near Fourth Avenue at 5:25 am, and returned 20 minutes later to find one of his windows shattered.
